WHOOP-Szo announces tour dates with new video release, “Amaruq”

Alt-rock band WHOOP-Szo dropped a new video yesterday for their song “Amaruq” to help announce a run of upcoming tour dates across Canada and the US.

Singer and chief songwriter Adam Sturgeon describes the video for “Amaruq” as “a visual summation of the themes conveyed on Warrior Down. It presents a vision of an Indigenous Future, one that defies being moulded into the usual narrative of Indigenous identity. The ‘Noble Indian’ looks into the mirror of his past and/or present.”
