One of the most rewarding things that we get to do is collaborate with other artists that we admire. We've always appreciated this artistic exchange - from the musicians on our records to the visual artists who contribute to our album art - we are endlessly inspired by artists of other disciplines and media. That's why we are over the moon about two recent collaborations to which we've had the honor of contributing our music.
The first is with the award-winning physical theatre company, The Wonderheads, who specialize in mask performance and exquisite visual storytelling. Think living cartoon. Created by Kate Braidwood and Andrew Phoenix, their work has been described as “Utter magic” (CBC), “Powerful, surprising and moving” (The Globe and Mail), and “Fantastic, in every sense of the word” (Cincinnati Enquirer). Their latest show is called "The Wilds" and we had the privilege to contribute 8 songs across our catalog of music to help tell this imaginative love story. They are currently performing at The Winnipeg Fringe Festival and will be touring later in the summer The Edmonton Fringe Festival and the Victoria Fringe Festival!

We were also interviewed on the latest episode of the podcast Break Form. This podcast was created by Annette Wong and Sarah Woo, two former(ish) lawyers turned writers, who explore their career transitions away from law, and, through conversations, discuss and challenge conventional narratives about career, creativity, and success. We had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Annette about touring, our artistic process and…. SURPRISE!… our brand new instrumental single, Vis Viva!
Earlier this year, we composed a piece of music which is our very first wordless creation, and we’re so proud to be unveiling it on Break Form, and contributing it as their new theme song. The single will be available on all digital platforms on July 27th, but if you want to hear an early sneak peek of the song ahead of its official release, listen to Episode 11 of Break Form, and make sure to click subscribe so you can hear all of their episodes.
