WINNIPEG SUPERGROUP JUNIPER BUSH ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM,
SHARE 
VIDEO FOR FORESIGHT

NEW LP HEALING THROUGH A SONIC FIGURE OUT VIA TRANSISTOR 66 ON APRIL 3

Winnipeg psych-rock/shoegaze outfit Juniper Bush are unleashing the video for “Foresight,” the second single off their debut full-length, Healing Through A Sonic Figure, due out on April 3 via Transistor 66.

Directed by band members Lizzy Burt and Danny Hacking, and produced by filmmaker Ryan Simmons, the video uses a mime as a symbol for the isolation, confusion and loss of self that often results from drug addiction.

“In the video, we tried to unravel that idea even further, using the mime to convey meaning versus perception, and the alienation that can come from breakdowns in communication,” said Burt. “There is a paralyzing silence that can fall over us when we’re not aligned with ourselves. The mime symbolizes this silence, but also illustrates the capacity to overcome one weakness by mastering another: body language and self-control.”

Healing Through A Sonic Figure revolves around themes of addiction, self-sabotage, and loss of self (“Hindsight,” “Foresight”), idealizing a better life (“Turn”), catharsis and recovery (“Follow My Lead”), and “Colleen,” so named after the woman the song is dedicated to, tells the story of a young woman who was tragically tortured and murdered in 1995 due to a perceived but non-existent love triangle.

Comprised of Lizzy Burt (Basic Nature), Adrian Schroeder (Black Cloud), and Danny Hacking and Kyle Loewen (Holy Void and Surprise Party), Juniper Bush was bestowed the title of Winnipeg’s newest supergroup when they formed back in 2016. The band merge the snarling psychedelia of The Black Angels, penetrative shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine (circa 1988), and the otherworldly alt-rock of The Cranberries into a concoction that’s both abrasive and sweet.

The four-piece will embark on a Western Canadian tour in the spring. All dates are listed below, with more venues to be confirmed soon.
