Hyaenas will be in Fernie to play Pride in celebration of their new single “It’s Not Up To Me”.
Embodying the energy & ferocity of the animal they are named after, Hyaenas are breaking onto the Canadian music scene. With fun, catchy hooks, their songs are written through a queer feminist lens; exploring meaningful themes from acceptance to vigilance, celebrating a love of nature, witchcraft, and social justice while drawing inspiration from 80’s icons The Go-Go’s to modern day Indie darlings, Warpaint. Born in a pandemic, Sophie Heppell (guitar, vocals), Jessie Robertson (bass), Jen Foster (drums) and Luvia Petersen (synth) have a palpable chemistry making this brand new band feel like it has always been. Each Hyaena comes with a breadth of accolades: notable performances include showcases at SXSW, Reeperbahn, Canadian Music Week, and Breakout West; Festivals such as Dawson City, Vancouver Pride, L-Beach, and Warped Tour; Tours/supporting slots for Metric, Mother Mother, Rancid, and The Buzzcocks; and countless shows across Canada, the US, and Western Europe 2006-now. Hyaenas are currently working with coveted Vancouver producers Elisa Pangsaeng (Said The Whale / Yukon Blonde) and Jesse Gander on their debut EP.
