For reasons we don’t fully understand, Saskatchewan’s indie music rarely gets the appreciation it deserves. This unique community has been shaped by their multiple and diverse influences, their will to push the boundaries of their craft and even by their distance to the main industry hubs. The Land of the Living Skies spawns music that easily sits next to the big Canadian names when it comes to artistic merit.

Let’s celebrate the diversity and talent that overruns this prairie province. Soft guitar sounds? Dancefloor-ready tunes? World class shoegaze? These bands have your back. Check out our Saskatchewan playlist below.
