FireWire Music Company introduce to Karkwa

Karkwa @ SXSW

FireWire Music Company (FWM) are fortunate to work with some incredible artists and 2011 has certainly started off with a bang!

We’d like to introduce you to an amazing band from Montreal that we recently recently discovered – Karkwa – we have no idea what they put in the water but Montreal is certainly producing some brilliant music.

We discovered Karkwa while searching for exciting and unique music for “Jesus Henry Christ”. Karkwa were perfect and are their song “Le Pyromane” is now part of our soundtrack. Listen to “Le Pyromane” below: 


They’re current winners of the prestigious Polaris Prize (Mercury, AMP) for Best Canadian Album for “Les Chemins de Verre” (Pathways Made of Glass), they have also been nominated for two Juno Awards this year and they just played live at the Genie Awards (The Canadian Academy Awards).

There’s quite a buzz developing around them. Their showcase last night during Canadian Music Week was packed with adoring new and seasoned fans and they have 4 official SXSW showcases coming up next week. So if you’re heading to Austin, be sure to check them out at one of the shows below.

“Les Chemins de Verre” was recorded without any pre-production, it’s an incredible album, a beautiful lush collection of songs filled with soaring melodies and French lyrics. The album sways between delicate acoustic stripped back songs to rich orchestrated pieces, taking the listener on an emotional journey that transcends language. We’re sure you’ll love it as much as we do.
