Nathan Gurley and Sean Rodman of the nationally renowned electro-folk duo Moontricks released their debut album on September 9th.

The Kootenay-based duo’s music is steeped in tradition yet polished with a futuristic sheen, mixing organic folk, roots rock, and old-time blues with modern electronic production.

The full-length album, Currents, released by Westwood Recordings, is about finding joy and inspiration in the act of seeking.

The band has already released a single from the album, Animals.

The band recently performed at the Kaslo Jazz Etc Summer Music Festival.

Rodman, says the band was very pleased that they were able to give a performance for local fans.

“It was amazing. Kaslo is very dear to our hearts, and it’s our hometown festival, which we have been going to since we were kids. Being on that beautiful floating stage after a two-year pandemic hiatus was one of the most memorable sets we have ever played.”

Since its initial release, the band’s breakout 2013 hit “Home” has reached over five million streaming plays, and their original tracks have been licensed for a wide range of television networks, including Netflix and Fox Sports.

After the release of Home, they joined international tours and festivals in Australia, Costa Rica, and the USA, gaining a loyal following.
