Release Day Ep 11 – Twin Flames
On August 28th, 2020, multi-award winning, chart-topping Indigenous folk artists Twin Flames released their 3rd studio album “Omen”. When listening through this album, you would think it was a product of such a trying year. As relevant as the songs and their messages are, the album is 15 years in the making.
“The album is concept-based around a dystopian reality, global warming, and humankind being free of social classes, mental health, and addictions,” they say. “It speaks to seeking Omens and signs of hope within ourselves and Mother Nature.” All topics that hit home for the band.
It is a great honour that we conclude 2020 speaking with Chelsey June, métis (Algonquin Cree) from Ottawa and Jaaji, Inuk and Mohawk from Nunavik about the lengths they went to, to connect with their audience, sharing the stories behind the music, providing an opportunity for their listeners to interact and share stories of their own, with the hope that they not feel so alone during this year of isolation.
We wish you all the best in 2021, thank you so much for watching.
