nêhiyawak is a Cree shoegaze band hailing from amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory. Comprised of Kris Harper, Matthew Cardinal, and Marek Tyler — three Indigenous musicians coalescing at the intersection between traditional and contemporary music. Their sound is at times loud and sweeping, and in moments, reticent and careful. Recording their first EP in November 2016 with Colin Stewart (The New Pornographers, Black Mountain, Dan Mangan), collecting and piecing together their experiences — existing simultaneously between diverse and disparate cultures — nêhiyawak shares with its audience their unique expression of Indigeneity in Canada today.
