MISE EN SCENE
ALBUM RELEASE FOR STILL LIFE ON FIRE
Female-fronted Winnipeg indie rock outfit Mise en Scene was founded by Stefanie Blondal Johnson (vocals and guitar) and Jodi Dunlop (drums), now joined by new friends Corey Hykawy (bass) and Dave Gagnon (guitar). Mise en Scene’s breakout album, Desire’s Despair (Pipe & Hat, 2012), charted for 16 weeks on !earshot’s Top 50 national charts and received a 2014 SiriusXM Indies Award nomination. The band toured across Canada, SXSW, and the Primavera Sound Festival. Gearing up to release their sophomore full length, Still Life On Fire for Light Organ Records, the album is a burning hollar—a swelling rumble indicative of the talented forces behind the monitors.
Johnson began writing the album during a residency at the renowned Banff Arts Centre in the winter of 2014. Launching from the opening bars of its expansive first track, the record builds through layers of hard-hitting percussion, powerful vocals and catchy riffs. Produced by Mike Nash (The Dears, Blue Rodeo, Ladies of the Canyon), the album is a full, sonic delight capturing a full portrayal of the band’s journey. With Still Life On Fire due out this year, the band’s energy is infectious, caged and ready.
