The Rural Alberta Advantage has released their personal new track “Beacon Hill”, which premiered via Stereogum yesterday.
The song centers in on the wildfires that led to thousands of households being evacuated in Fort McMurray last year. Singer/guitarist Nils Edenloff opens up about the evacuation of his onetime home and “his feeling completely powerless to help but sounding emboldened to not let what once was be forgotten.”
A full-length release from the band is set to be released later this year via Paper Bag Records/Saddle Creek and the group has been touring, previewing new material for fans across the country.

Born and raised in MTL, I spent most of my teens and early 20’s working in the music industry. I made the permanent move to Toronto in 2013 where I joined the team at the Canadian Independent Music Association as the Music Export Assistant. I spend my days working with and promoting incredible indie Canadian artists and companies across the world.
Music journalism and photography have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, as I jumped on board Confront Magazine a few years after it formed and ran it as the Editor-in-Chief for 7 years, right up until its recent closure.
I love to spend my spare time running to and from concerts, cheering on my hockey team (Go Habs!) and getting lost in nature whenever I can.
