CMW 2017 Preview: We, the Oceanographers – “This Is Why”

Canadian Music Week hits Toronto on April 18. Between now and then, we’ll be previewing some of this year’s participating bands.

The Unisphere: a stainless steel Earth that was built for the New York World’s Fair, in 1964. Amusing tidbit: Every year, at least three people end up in hospital because they tried to climb it (and failed).

Yes, there does appear to be a line in the chorus that goes: “Puppies, quesadillas, Christian Slater.” Nothing wrong with that.

Ireland’s We, the Oceanographers play two CMW sets: April 21 at Stop, Drop & Roll at midnight, and April 22 at Smiling Buddha at 6:30.
