Indie-folk band Alea Rae stops at Emporium Jan 30 on first BC tour

Submitted by Jeremiah Ackermann

 

 

fter receiving international attention and an overwhelming response from their split-single Lancaster/Flies back in July, New Westminster folk-indie visionaries Alea Rae have announced plans to start off the year promoting their songs with a short British Columbia tour. The three-show trek has them starting off in Kelowna, BC and capping things in Abbotsford, BC.

 

Their split single release is a significant departure from their 2013 EP Offerings, which featured more folk, singer-songwriter arrangements. Now lush and layered with dark instrumentation and punctuated percussion, the three-piece has been compared to bands such as The National and Daughter, and have been heavily featured on CBC's contemporary music program, The Signal.
