The dual videos for Stumble (dir. Sammy Rawal) are running at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art through September as part of the exhibit Projection: Music Video 2013. Thanks to everyone who worked on them, especially dancers Addy Chan and Liana Lewis. . .
Talked to the Toronto Standard in advance of the show and it’s the best interview we’ve had in ages. Speaking to someone who’s obviously paid attention to the music is a real pleasure – plus I think we cherished the opportunity to run our mouths at length. My favourite part: “a sound on its own doesn’t really mean anything until it’s associated with something”.
Finally, have to speak on how much fun we had deejaying at Young Lions’ Songs party last month. We’re saying no to most DJ things while we finish the record and work on the new live show – featuring our drummer Kieran Adams. But we made an exception and had a phenomenal time not mixing but just playing songs we love across every decade. Alanna’s hands even touched plastic for the first time. It’s a new era.
Didn’t put out anything completely new this year so we’ve been reading the year-end lists as spectators and fans. But we just learned that we made Dazed’s Top 100 songs of 2011. Chuffed!
It seems a little un-2011/2012 to post an announcement that we’ve launched a new site, so instead we’ll share the details of a couple shows coming up before end of year.
Wednesday, December 21 is part II of Fucked Up’s holiday benefit series and features us (with your boy Kieran on drums), Sloan (playing One Chord to Another), Rural Alberta Advantage and Ohbijou. Great Hall in Toronto, 7pm doors – reach early we’re on first! Full details here
Then to finish off the year we’re reaching Saint John, NB for the first time to play the port city’s big NYE party at Kent Theatre – full details here.
