Back in the fall we grabbed our good friend (and director extraordinaire) Millefiore Clarkes and shot a video for our song Go To Bed from our last record Red Potion and now we finally get to share it with all of you! The video had it’s premiere over at Mixtape Mag.
“Produced in co-operation with the MuchFACT (A Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent) PromoFACT Award Program, sponsored by M3, a division of Bell Media Inc.”
Happy Birthday to us!! Our record Red Potion is exactly 1 year old now. As a little birthday gift from us to you we’ve made it available for FREE DOWNLOAD until the end of September. If you don’t already have it, you can grab it now!
Just a quick update on some Words related activities. Since we last touched base we’ve been working hard on some new songs, playing some local show and plowing through the user manuals of some new gear. We’re proud to say that our album Red Potion won the (first ever) Electronic Recording of the Year at the 2013 East Coast Music Awards. We’ll be sticking close to home this summer, but you’ll see us some time in the fall. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some Gizoogling to do!
Every year Ryan & Aaron throw a cottage party. This summer we shot a video for People I Love at the party. Two weeks ago we won an award for filming an awesome cottage party at the Music PEI awards! Big thanks to Millefiore Clarkes and Mikey Wasnidge, not to mention Mearl & Cynthia Crane! We also won Pop Recording of the Year and Aaron took home the award for Musician of the Year and (unofficially) best acceptance speech of the night/ever.
Seems like website posts are going the way of hand-written letters. At least 12,086 really cool things will happen that you will hear about, before you find your way onto this website. Nevertheless, an update is due, so here we gooooo.
Our new album, Red Potion, has received some award nominations here on the east coast. The album’s up for 4 Music PEI awards and has been nominated for electronic recording of the year at this year’s East Coast Music Awards. We’ll be playing shows at each of these events so check the “Shows” section for details. We’re also going back to Fredericton in February (the 9th) to play one of our favourite venues, The Capital. These are just the fun facts.
In fluffier news, we’re starting to “think” seriously about writing new songs. And that’s a good start! Stay tuned.
Our debut album Red Potion is now available on iTunes and Bandcamp! To celebrate we’re hopping in the van and heading up to Pop Montreal this weekend. We’re playing on Friday night, check the shows section for all of the details. Until we see you next, thanks for coming out to the shows and we hope you enjoy Red Potion.
Every summer we have a cottage party. This year we filmed it. Directed/filmed/edited by Millefiore Clarkes. Additional filming by Mikey Wasnidge.
If you like the song and you haven’t grabbed a copy of it yet, there’s a widget just below where you can download it for free (in exchange for your email address)!
