I LOVE THIS BAND!!! I didn't think I would to be honest. I heard they were doing the whole "reggae" thing a la Sublime, and I immediately dismissed them. After a few days I came 'round and decided I'd give them a listen and boy was I impressed.
Picture beautiful British Columbia. The mountains, the ocean, the endless forests...the weed(?) Now picture a montage of all of your favourite outdoor activities; camping, swimming, kayaking, surfing, snowboarding, hiking, chilling at the cottage, lazy summer nights... etc etc. Their music would be the background track to your montage.
Enter, The Wilderness Crew. Brett Mjanes, Eli Dill, and Eric Amberg, three emcees from Sunshine Coast, BC, have a great sound. They've merged the chill of reggae, the swagger of hip-hop, the cool of rock and the fun of pop to create a truly unique blend completely they're own. I'm not sure what to call it, but their tunes are definitely perfect for hanging out with friends around the fire pit this summer. So grab your favourite strain of BC kush and get to toking to The Wilderness Crew, my new band for the summer that captures the Canadian spirit to the core.
