YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN
"there is no other band like YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN on the planet." - All Tomorrow's Parties
Yamantanka // Sonic Titan are a psychedelic noh-wave opera group fusing noise, metal, pop and folk music into a multidisciplinary hyper-orientalist cesspool of 'east' meets 'west' culture clash in giant monochrome paper sets.

nêhiyawak - **TORONTO DEBUT**
nêhiyawak is a trio hailing from amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory, comprised of Kris Harper, Matthew Cardinal, and Marek Tyler. Indie-rock guitar and dance floor synths blend and walk alongside the steady beats of carved cedar log and hand drums. Their first EP in November 2016 with Colin Stewart (The New Pornographers, Black Mountain, Dan Mangan), the music balances the band’s heritage with the present. nêhiyawak tells stories - their story - capturing time through honeyed and haunting vocals, swaying in and out of the cacophony of electronic and analog sounds. Within the framework of the conventional song, the band creates and adds their own history and stage. Collecting and piecing together their experiences - existing simultaneously between diverse and disparate cultures - nêhiyawak shares with its audience their unique expression of Indigeneity in Canada today.

WHOOP-Szo
WHOOP-Szo is a wild fusion of folk, metal, pop, grunge, and even classical musical stylings. Though radically diverse in tone, WHOOP-Szo has crafted their many sounds well, and are able to create immersive musical tapestries that evoke deep emotions while conveying troubling stories of civil unrest via layered harmonies, churning guitar, gritty synth, and a whole psychedelic plethora of other noise. They are known for the boundaries that they have bridged between social work, activism, and music making, not only in their hometown of London, Ontario, but also in various communities across Turtle Island. As a band fronted by an Indigenous artist, album and song themes often focus on issues like colonization, language, self-determination, and appropriation. Outreach feats include the creation of an Inuit Youth silkscreen apprenticeship program in Salluit, QC and workshops on Solidarity Through Art in Kingsclear First Nation, NB amongst others.
