The Jerry Cans – Swell (My Brother) [Music Video] / Album Stream

Iqaluit’s The Jerry Cans dropped their album Echoes on May 15, 2020 via Pheromone Recordings.
Also the band released the music video for Swell (My Brother).


About the song/album:
Swell (My Brother)” is a song that broke the band’s hearts when singing, and that broke their heart when writing.
Over the course of creating Echoes, their new album, two of our childhood friends died by suicide.
Before the current pandemic, Nunavut has been struggling with a pandemic of its own.
Losing family and friends to suicide this way is not new for the band or anyone who has spent any time in Nunavut.
But this song came out of the anger, sorrow, and frustration of this experience.
Even as they grow up, they never seem to outgrow these feelings.
At this point, they could offer statistics that would bring tears to your eyes.
They will not do that.
To them, these statistics are so much more than that. They are our friends, our family members, and our community members.

Echoes gets:
/10.
