Tag: Mozart’s Sister
It’s here: the long awaited proper debut EP from Montreal dark pop genius Mozart’s Sister. All of these tracks were out there before on the Dear Fear EP last year, but these reworked versions sound huger and even more amazing. She’s been getting hyped in all the right places. And just today in the UK on Dazed. The world’s next outré pop superstar? We couldn’t be happier about it.
EDIT: Silent Shout is now presenting Mozart’s Sister live in Toronto on March 23 at Canadian Music Week. We’re now officially biased in our unabashed love of her music.
Fantastic new self-referential single from Mozart’s Sister. Looks like she’s hooked up with Merok and 4AD and huge things inevitably await. Terribly pleased.
2012 has been the strongest year in memory for Canadian electronic pop. Established artists started new electronic projects, amazing new talents appeared seemingly out of nowhere, and one of our shining stars became a superstar recognized the world over. Canada is clearly at the epicenter of the zeitgeist – it’s a testament to the unbelievable talent in this country that we have 100 songs to present to you as the best of the year, and STILL had to exclude so many excellent tracks.
Montreal and Toronto may still have the most representatives of any Canadian city, but dark electro is thriving everywhere, from Halifax to Calgary, Ottawa to Vancouver, and exciting new hotbeds appearing in London, Ontario, and Grande Prairie, Alberta. We’re not too exclusively nationalist here at Silent Shout, so border states (minus NYC) appear too, with artists from Minneapolis, Seattle, and Brattleboro, Vermont making our list.
A huge thank you to all our readers, the folks who attend our events, and the bands that make brilliant music across this land for making 2012 an unforgettable year for us. Here’s to an even bigger 2013 for Canadian electronic music.

Holy shit. Drop what you’re doing and listen to this new artist from Montreal who’s making incredible pop music. Mozart’s Sister – we predict you’ll be hearing that name a lot in 2012. Her EP Dear Fear from last year is also awesome (especially tracks 2 and 3) and is available for free on her Bandcamp.
Thanks to Said the Gramophone for introducing this gloriousness to us.
