"Others" by Indigo Joseph has been named CBC Music's Song of the Summer!

We started with more than 150 songs at the beginning of August. Voters then narrowed it down to 40, then 10, and now have chosen a winner. 

The voting in the top 10 was close; it came down to the final seconds, and in the end the winning margin was a mere handful of votes.

Voters chose well. "Others," a single which came out earlier this year, has the qualities we were looking for in a summer song, and is a new discovery for CBC Radio 3 listeners (the band has only released one EP). It will be the first song from the Regina band that we put into rotation.  

CBC Radio 3 will be playing "Others" throughout the day, or you can listen to it on demand below. Check back in the coming days to see our profile of the band.

Congratulations also goes out to the Strumbellas and their song "In This Life," which is the editor's choice honourable mention as the song they felt most captured their criteria of a catchy summer song. Check it out here.
