Karkwa react to Juno announcement

Quebec band Karkwa, whose Les chemins de verre earned nominations for both Francophone Album of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year, expressed their shock following the announcement. "The biggest surprise was Alternative Album of the Year," said drummer Stephane Bergeron - this, despite the fact the rockers came away with the 2010 Polaris Music Prize for the same album.

"In the alternative category, we are with all the Canadian rock bands, so it's a big surprise, like Steph said," added frontman Louis-Jean Cormier. "Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, we are like kids next to them," he added, pretending (or maybe not) to freak out like a fan-boy. "I think the Polaris has maybe changed something, but it's not the same people. It's much more mainstream, the Junos. They're not . . . used to it."

On the flip side, Karkwa confess they're not particularly acquainted with many of this year's top Juno contenders, outside of the bands represented in the Francophone Album of the Year category.

"There is a lot of people we don't know. I don't know Drake," Cormier admits, adding, "He is a pop singer, I think."

The Juno Awards will be broadcast on CTV on Sunday, March 27 from Toronto's 6Air Canada Centre. Tickets to the show go on sale Saturday, Feb. 5. For more information, visit www.junoawards.ca.
