Sunglaciers insert for web.jpg


Sunglaciers’ music blurs the boundaries between polished melodicism and opaque experimentation, auspicious romanticism and unbridled dissent. Though anchored in the strange realities of our times, their songs are laced with a certain optimism through well-calculated psych elements and vibrant rhythms, making for a unique strand of kaleidoscopic proto-pop. Following up on critically-acclaimed full-length efforts Foreign Bodies and Subterranea, the Calgary outfit now returns with Regular Nature (March 29th, 2024 via Mothland).


Sunglaciers came together in 2017 as a collaboration between multi-instrumentalists Evan Resnik and Mathieu Blanchard. As Blanchard completed his studies to become a doctor working in family medicine and addiction, and Resnik returned to Alberta after spending a few years hitchhiking through France, the duo decided to form a new musical project, first releasing independently a pair of EPs – Moving in Darkness in 2017 and Twin/Evil Twin in 2018 – as well as Foreign Bodies (2019), a debut full-length described by the Calgary Herald as “an assured blend of melodic songwriting, propulsive rhythms and guitar noise”. On their sophomore long-player Subterranea (March 25th, 2022 via Mothland), the post-punks carved out new sonic spaces with laser focus, journalist Stephan Boissonneault greatly enjoying its “distorted metaphors, cascading synth work, batshit drumming, and frenzied guitar” (Northern Transmissions, 9/10).


Bassist Kyle Crough and guitarist/keyboardist Nyssa Brown joined Sunglaciers in 2018 and 2020, respectively. The pair is featured heavily on the forthcoming studio album, while also touring with the group. These past years, the 4-piece have brought their intense, immersive and fast-paced live set to a number of alternative hotbeds, touring extensively in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. They have been invited to notable events such as New Colossus (Manhattan, NY), FOCUS Wales (Wrexham, UK), Sled Island (Calgary, AB), M for Montréal (QC), Block Heater / Calgary Folk Festival (AB), NXNE (Toronto, ON), Winterruption (Edmonton, AB) and BIG Winter Classic (Calgary, AB), also sharing the stage with visionaries, the likes of Preoccupations, No Age, Chad VanGaalen, La Luz, Sweeping Promises and Omni.


With Regular Nature, Sunglaciers deliver intricately constructed yet danceable rock music filled with post-punk, new wave and garage elements. Purposely designed to be enjoyed in many ways, from solitary headphone listening to a crowded live venue, the third full-length – co-produced by Chad Van Gaalen and mixed by engineer Mark Lawson (The Unicorns, Land of Talk, Yves Jarvis) and featuring a guest appearance by Daniel Monkman of Zoon – is scheduled for release on March 29th, 2024 via  Mothland. It should please fans of alternative music contemporaries such as Deerhunter, Ought or MGMT as well as vintage rock aficionados looking for a modern take on new wave reminiscent of Devo or Talking Heads.
