I haven't heard a lot of Electrofolk, but Prairlas is bringing it to Canadian Music Week! We had a quick chat with the band about their upcoming performance in Toronto.
Hammer Records: Tell us what you think of when you think Canadian Music?
Prairials: I think of Rushing through an Arcade on Fire while I try to Guess Who
The Band was that had all those Barenaked Ladies..They were pretty
Hip. Seriously though, Canada is and always has been full of great
musicians. I think the world is really starting to realize what a
major force we are in the industry.
Hammer Records: How did you get involved in Canadian Music Week?
Prairials: We’ve taken part in Canadian Music Week for years as stage managers
and spectators and really support the event. This year we figured it
was time to step up and put on a show, so we sent in an application.
Our love for the selection committee must be mutual.
Hammer Records: What do you have planned for Canadian Music Week?
Prairials: Banjo. Upright Bass. Accordion. Kickass drumbeats. Video Projections.
Mind blowing music. Just to name a few.
Hammer Records: What message do you want to send to Canadians listening to your music?
Prairials: Support.Canadian.Music. Oh, and we love you all.
Hammer Records: Whats coming up for you?
Prairials: We’ll be releasing our second album in July before heading out on a
nation-wide tour this summer. Stay posted on our social media for
updates on the album release, new material and to see when we’re
playing in a city near you!
