In March 2014, Montreal band Groenland celebrated the first anniversary of their debut album's release with a memorable concert in front of a sold-out home town crowd. For the occasion, Groenland invited New Brunswick’s Lisa LeBlanc to accompany the band on a couple of songs. CBC Music was also on hand to record the concert as well as an exclusive video of a brand new song.
Groenland brought their orchestral indie pop to one of Montreal’s most interesting venues, the historical Corona Theatre (now known as the Virgin Mobile Corona Theatre). As the musicians were preparing, sound engineers and lighting technicians were fine-tuning every aspect of this event while the CBC Music video team captured the vibe and the special moments.
Check out this exclusive CBC Music video of “Don’t Fix Me Yet,” Groenland’s brand new song performed here with LeBlanc, who brings her trademark folk-trash banjo energy to the mix.
It's been an amazing year for Groenland, lead by Sabrina Halde and Jean-Vivier Lévesque. Since the release of their debut, The Chase, they have been performing all over Canada, Europe and also at a pre-Grammy showcase in Los Angeles. They also gave unforgettable performances at the Osheaga festival and at M for Montreal.
Their music has been featured on television shows, including the season premiere of The Good Wife, as well as in a British Airways ad. And on top of that, they were on the list of CBC Radio 3’s 10 key artists of 2013.
You can hear the full Groenland concert at Concerts on Demand, where you'll get a front row seat to the sold out show, hear that brand new song and as a bonus treat, a fantastic cover of James Blake's "Retrograde."
