New music from Snotty Nose Rez Kids!
Been waiting for this one after being pretty obsessed with their Polaris nominated album The Average Savage - and now we have a new single “Creator Made An Animal”, and release date for their next album Trapline - May 10th.
The JUNO nominated duo will also be heading out on tour, and their Vancouver show is May 30th at Fortune Sound Club with DJ Kookum.
This is what the band has to say about the new single (that features 19-year year old Boslen - a Haisla/Jamaican from Chilliwack):
“Creator Made An Animal is our way of paying homage to the place that we call home as our spirits awaken and our people rise up,” the band comments. “Creator Made An Animal carries an aggressive and assertive energy that imitates the way society portrays Indigenous people and People of Colour across Turtle Island. Our ancestors were stereotyped as savages, and we are often regarded as the pissed-off generation who haven’t gotten over what colonization has done to our lands and to our people. Through stylish delivery, we proclaim ourselves as the Father 7th Generation and let the world know that we aren’t changing for anyone. The future is ours. We are powerful as human beings and it’s integral that we respect the knowledge that was passed down from our ancestors. Many of us also carry their pain, but every single one of us carry their power. Embrace that power, stay true to that power and to yourself!”
