Originating from small towns in Ontario, Canada, the band Familiars are group who mix elements of Canadiana, fuzz, psychedelic, stoner, shoegaze and beer resulting in what is a truly fresh and unique sound that can be best described as loud Canadiana-style psych rock. Released on January 23, 2016, Migration consists of 2 tracks, “The Wild Horses of Sable Island” and “Runners of the Woods” – the latter of which we’re now offering as a free download.

According to the band, they are “musicians who created music inspired by stories they were raised on” and with Migration we’re privy to two of these stories. So, are you ready to head to the woods for a relaxing camping trip with friends, food and weed only to be disrupted by angry, rabid bears? Well, Familiars have your soundtrack to the chaotic calm.
