Double Rider releases new single, “Echoes of The Past”

Alberta’s Siksika Nation band, Double Rider have unveiled their new single, “Echoes of The Past”, which speaks of the history and everlasting spirit of the Siksika (Blackfoot) people. Guided by a soft jam rock, the song is as much of a history lesson as it is a resonating 70s ballad.

“Echoes of the Past” was written by Matthew Many Heads—the late grandfather of Double Rider (Hannah and Lennon Owlchild, and Erin Manyheads). Matthew Manyheads was a residential school survivor of nine years, leading him to express his passions, sorrows, etc., through music.

Though the song was written a number of years ago, it finds new, youthful life as a single, and on Double Rider’s anticipated self-titled debut EP.

“Our grandfather gave us his songs and his music as gifts,” Double Rider says. These gifts are full of stories and speak about love and loss; the history of our people and the present day.”
