The Strumbellas – “Salvation”

Local six piece collective The Strumbellas made it huge with their 2016 release Hope and the song “Spirits” was everywhere! After relentless touring they’re not only working on their fourth record, but also launched their own label imprint with eOne. Here’s a taste of what’s to come in the new year!

Elle King – “Baby Outlaw”

Elle King defied the sophomore curse with her second release called “Shake the Spirit.” This one shows her powerhouse vocals and the strength in vulnerability that comes from writing about heartbreak and hard times, and coming out on the other side.


The Treble – “Eyes On Us”

Hopefully you saw these Winnipeg alt rockers when they opened for Dear Rouge last month. Their new record will be out next year, but this track should have them on your radar.

Morgxn – “Home (feat. WALK THE MOON)”

Morgxn had quite a festival filled summer, and when WALK THE MOON joined him on stage at Lollapalooza it seemed like a collab was in the works and on the way. Here’s the result


Pkew Pkew Pkew – “65 Nickels”

Locals Pkew Pkew Pkew recently signed to Dine Alone Records and delivered this punchy 2 minute punk gem!
