Secret Sun present a video for NHNT, the fourth and last single off their critically-acclaimed album Cold Coast. The band’s debut album was released via Bonsound exactly two years ago.
For the dreamlike song, actors Caroline Dhavernas and Alexandre Landry slip into the skin of a rebellious couple. The video, directed by Pierre-Alexandre Girard and Daniel Abraham from DTO Films, draws us into an intimacy that is both belligerent and loving.
Watch and share the video for NHNT via YouTube.
This fall, Secret Sun will be preparing to record their sophomore effort, due out in 2017.

Almost one year ago to the day that she released her debut album, Limoilou, Safia Nolin received the Breakout Award at the 2016 SOCAN Montréal Awards Gala. The crazy thing about this is that the first prize she ever won was the SOCAN Best Song Prize (for her song Igloo), at the 2012 Festival de la Chanson de Granby.
Lisa LeBlanc shares the single Could You Wait 'Til I've Had My Coffee? off her album Why You Wanna Leave, Runaway Queen? to be released on September 30 via Bonsound. Stream and share the song now via Youtube. The album is available for pre-order on iTunes and Bandcamp.
Don't miss her album launch at Théâtre Corona on September 29th. Tickets available here.
At 26 years old, the captivating Montreal singer-guitarist-banjo player who hails from Rosaireville, New Brunswick has toured for four years with her band and sold over 140 000 records on two continents. Recorded at Mountain City Studios and Mixart Studio in Montreal, Why You Wanna Leave, Runaway Queen? came together over the spring, guided by a wonderful team. Joseph Donovan took the reigns as producer (Sam Roberts, The Dears), while Mico Roy played guitar, Benoit Morier took on guitar and bass and Maxime Gosselin played drums. Award-winning singer Sam Roberts stopped in to help out with guest vocals on the tune I Love You, I Don't Love You, I Don't Know.

After the release of their very first album Springtime Devil, named one of the most innovative releases heard in quite some time (Gerrod Harris, Canadian Beats), Les Deuxluxes strike again and present a brand new music video for the album’s title song. The duo, comprised of Anna Frances Meyer and Étienne Barry, stole the show last week at the FME in Abitibi-Témiscamingue and play a sold-out show to boot. The band radiates simple, delirious fun, relying on meaty guitar hooks and no-frills drums [...] to rock the room. (Matt Williams, Exclaim!)
Directed by Dan & Pag, the video is pure Les Deuxluxes: crazy, glamorous, explosive and rock’n’roll. Dressed in leather and glitter, the one-of-a-kind duo delivers the goods with their signature style. This video makes it impossible to remain unmoved by their raw live energy.
Les Deuxluxes are currently touring Quebec this summer and will officially launch their album on September 15th at La Tulipe. Tickets are on sale now.

On s’en prend plein la gueule de ce blues rock qui, pendant neuf chansons d’affilée, ne se repose pas. Et par-dessus la distorsion de guitares insatiables, il y a la voix puissante de la souveraine et audacieuse Meyer. - Ici Musique
Springtime Devil porte bien son nom. Nouveau printemps pour Les Deuxluxes, rythme endiablé pour les fans. Shinez vos souliers! ÇA, c’est du rock and roll. - Écoutedonc.ca
Les Deuluxes signent ici un projet réussi qui nous rend tout simplement b-o-u-c-h-e b-é-e. Avec la voix chaude de Meyer et les instrumentations précises d’Étienne Barry, on a droit à tout un cocktail. - Le Canal Auditif
