Wintersleep, an indie rock band based in Halifax is back at it again with their newest album ‘The Great Detachment’ released January of 2016 and a new video for its seventh track, “Spirit.” The lyrics to the song serve as a metaphor about surviving a world bent on its own disaster, according to Paul Murphey. The video premiered on Noisey the same day the band learned that they were nominated for Best Adult Alternative Album for this year’s JUNOs, alongside Canadian greats Leonard Cohen and Gord Downie.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
