Strange Grooves Volume 36: Sing-Alongs with The Backstays

On this week’s episode of Strange Grooves, we’re hanging out on Cait’s living floor with The Backstays.

The Backstays are a pretty new Saint John band, but they are already making waves in New Brunswick’s music community. They just recently released their first single “Dreams” and are gearing up to release their EP on August 2 at the Five and Dime!

We dig into the interesting story of how the band got together (it involves Twitter stalking and taking a chance Kijiji Ads!); their creative process and, of course, their musical influences.

They chat about their experience recording their EP and their upcoming tour.  We also discuss things like the importance of celebrating your roots and the importance of place in music.

Oh, and we have a sing-along to what is arguably the best song about Saint John ever. Can you guess what it is?

You’re going to have to listen to find out.

That and so much more on this episode of Strange Grooves!
