Hearing Trees (Winnipeg) comes to Vernon for the first time! Joined by Saint Mountain from Nelson.
Hearing Trees is anxious, edge-riding rock with a backdrop of colourful, image-inducing lyrics. Frontman Graham Hnatiuk’s immersive poetry grasps the gritty, dry edge of modern life, spinning it over the band’s layered soundscapes reminiscent of post-punk and Canadiana, producing “an elegant sound with rough edges, like a well-loved blanket” (Canadian Beats).
Hearing Trees hit the ground running in 2017, opening for Iskwé, performing at Festival du Voyageur in Winnipeg, appearing on Killing Moon’s (UK) New Moons Vol VII compilation, dropping a new EP, as well as an appearance at Canadian Music Week in Toronto.
Having found their stride in touring, using the stage night in and night out to refine their sound and new songs. What has emerged is an evolved but distinct sound, drawing comparisons to R.E.M, The Editors, The National and Matthew Good.
Orb Sceptre Throne is a 3-piece rock band that mixes classic and modern sounds with a focus on melody, harmony and catchy song writing. Started as a side project from a well-established heavy metal group in the Okanagan, Orb Sceptre Throne has become the main focus of creativity between the three members, who bring experience from a wide variety of musical projects. OST draws influence from hard rock, indie rock, country, funk, pop and more for a dynamic and original sound but with a familiar feeling.
