Montreal duo Folly & The Hunter has returned from hiatus with fresh energy, bearing a captivating and polished set of sophisticated, cinematic indie-pop. Their lead single “Remain” is the track that catalyzed their new upbeat feel. Organically grown out of an improvisation, experimenting with grittier sounds and more driving rhythms, “Remain” moved the group past the stylistic constraints of their previous work.
Folly & The Hunter is formed by seasoned members of Montreal’s Indie community, multi-instrumentalists Laurie Torres (Rae Spoon, Little Scream, Land of Talk) and Nick Vallee. Their striking melodies and tightly woven rhythms come together to immediately strike the ear. Their magnetic sound has made them a favourite among music supervisors, with placements in the Melissa McCarthy show Nobodies; ABC Family drama The Fosters; Saving Hope; Cracked; MTV’s Awkward; Teen Mom; Rookie Blue; Private Eyes; Netflix’ Switched at Birth; Degrassi: The Next Generation; and Heartland, hooking thousands of new fans and earning over a million plays on Spotify, hundreds of thousands of Youtube hits and Apple music streams.
Their last album, Awake, saw them touring with Half Moon Run and dates with James Vincent McMorrow. The duo are set to release a new LP via Outside Music later this year.
