nêhiyawak's starlight EP is a five song collection that reflects the vast range of a band emboldened with the powerful resonance of its rich cultural lineage. starlight shines a torch into the shadows of colonial ideologies and asks what is erasure? What are the depths man will go to to extinguish culture? The trio of Indigenous Canadian artists hails from amiskwaciy in Treaty 6 territory – Kris Harper (vocals, guitars), Marek Tyler (drums), and Matthew Cardinal (synths, bass). Their music transcends a new intersection of contemporary sound and the traditional storytelling of their ancestry. nêhiyawak is a resonant expression of indigeneity in the modern world.
