Pantayo is an all-women lo-fi R&B gong punk collective based in Toronto. Combining percussive metallophones and drums from kulintang traditions of Southern Philippines and synth-based electro grooves, they represent an exciting mix of tradition and innovation.
Pantayo has been involved in notable projects including performances at Canada150, The Music Gallery’s X Avant Festival, Wavelength Festival, and a collaboration with YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN for the Severed video game soundtrack (Drinkbox Studios, 2016).
Pantayo has been featured in Noisey (2016), CBC Music for International Women’s Day 2017, a cover story in Musicworks Magazine in Summer/Fall 2017, and was listed in Now Magazine as Toronto musicians to watch in 2018: Indie Edition.
Scary Bear Soundtrack
Scary Bear Soundtrack is an Ottawa-based indie dream pop project fronted by multi-instrumentalist Gloria Guns, prominently featuring synths, layered three-part vocal harmonies, and reverb guitar sounds processed through chorus pedals and vintage amps. Their critically acclaimed song about gender-based violence “Fault Lines” made it to the national final top 4 in CBC’s Searchlight Competition for Canada’s Best New Artist in 2015. The band has played at numerous festivals including Ottawa Bluesfest, Mirror Mountain Film Festival, Megaphono, JUNOfest, Ottawa Race Weekend, and Folk on the Rocks in Yellowknife, as well as the North West Territories Pride Festival. Their last EP “Ovayok Road” was written and produced in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, where Gloria used to live.
The band’s single “The Longest Night”, written in collaboration with Avid Napper, also made it to the top 10 acts across all of Canada in the national round for CBC Music’s Searchlight competition for Canada’s Best New Artist in 2014. In addition, The Longest Night was the highest debut for the week of May 23, 2014, making it to #2 on CBC Radio 3’s R3-30 Countdown for Canada’s top indie songs of the week, where it remained for over a month, and was included in the Top 103 Songs of the Year by CBC Music.
