Tunic
Tunic
Arty noise punk trio Tunic recently unveiled Boss, its follow-up to last year’s debut EP, Disappointment. Dissonant, yet abrasive, Boss features punishing bass and drums, the surgical cuts and hisses of guitar, and gravelly vocals. Conceived in a musty room above a cellphone repair shop, Boss’ songs were honed in basements, warehouses, and bars across North America and they will continue to do so throughout 2017
Hellnback
Hellnback
Hailing from the Samson Cree Nation, Carmen Omeasoo aka Hellnback is no stranger to the music industry. Earning nods as co-founder of Warparty and as part of acclaimed hip hop collective Team Rezofficial, Hellnback picked up an Indigenous Music Award in 2015 in recognition for his contribution to music and community while his album #FOE=Family Over Everything also won him new fans. He has collaborated with artists such as A Tribe Called Red, and most recently DJ Shub and Snotty Nose Rez Kids, and Mob Bounce for his second release off the new solo album titled, #1491
Boniface
Boniface
Indie pop project Boniface, aka emerging singer/songwriter Micah Visser, takes its name from the unique Winnipeg enclave of Saint Boniface. Fresh from a coveted turn at Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival and known for his powerful, lyrical, and personal songs Boniface has recently released his new single, “I will not return as a tourist”, which earned international attention after its debut on BBC Radio 1 this fall.
Ghost Twin
Ghost Twin
Ghost Twin is a dark electronic dance collaboration between filmmakers/musicians Karen and Jaimz Asmundson from Winnipeg, Canada. They combine roaring synthlines, dirty pulsing bass, dreamy guitar, and a haunting vocal dichotomy where Baroque meets Industrial, with live video percussion that feeds cinema through a cut-up technique imbued with occult aesthetics.

Their audio/visual performance creates a full sensory evocative narrative of shadowy haunted rooms occupied by astral phantasms and electronic voices from beyond the aether.
