The Strumbellas – My Father and the Hunter

On the strength of one EP, The Strumbellas managed to grab 20k in factor funds and the production of Cone McCaslin at Blue Rodeo’s Woodshed Studio. The Strumbellas are a seven-piece alt country outfit based out of Toronto. Their debut full length, My Father and the Hunter, alternates between barn burners and lullabies. Songs like “Diane” and “Lakes” are resolute and cathartic and lead single “The Bird That Follows Me” is like a smooth gulp of rye with it’s swung Band-esque trot through lines like “I believe in death / cause death has always won / the last hand.”
