Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
It’s honest and it usually makes people smile and think about things of significance. I guess our music is a bit adventurous. It’s definitely honest. It’s organically quirky and a bit deranged….and kind of orchestral.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
Our album release for Happy Crimes is coming up Saturday, Feb 9th at the west end cultural centre in Winnipeg. We plan on going back out west again after the dust settles.
We energetically play our hearts out. We sing about tragic things in the past, present trauma, and anxiety about the future. There’s usually laughter and applause that follows.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Depends how long the listener has. What I think they might like… I think we would all suggest slightly different songs. Michelle -apocalypse 3, Joey-Apocalypse 2. Steve – Children of the Hill/ Apocalypse 2.
