Claws out and arms open; Strange Breed is rock music for anyone seeking a way to amplify their own voice and discover a “safe space” in a scene that is not always inviting to all.

Its music roster includes emerging acts Strange Breed, Black Pontiac, Nick Beezy, Reverend and The Rebel, and Tommy Charles.
Hailing from Vancouver, BC, the band’s newest single “So Blind” has garnered over 140K streams already! This single sees the band deliver hard hitting femme rock fueled by riot grrll rage. Listen to the single HERE and watch the lyric video HERE!
“So Blind” is a song about maintaining your voice through a toxic relationship. It speaks to the strength that it takes to speak up about what matters to you and why, and normalizes cutting ties that are no longer serving you.
Musically, the song starts out melancholic and pleading; begging to be heard. It builds, sounding angrier and more demanding, through to the chorus which erupts into a chaotic and driving pulse. Unexpected twists are explored in the bridge, resolving into a final uplifting and cathartic chorus. Listeners can expect layers of heavy electric guitars, with sparse verses and bright accents. Melodic bass and chaotic, driving drums. Powerhouse vocals with tightly wound harmonies that create both tension and release through the song.
Previously, Strange Breed released singles “Tethers” and “Reputation”. Both have seen incredible success with features on The Strombo Show, idobi Radio and Stingray Music. “Reputation” was added as one of The Strombo Show’s Top 100 Songs of 2020.
Stay tuned for more music and tour dates from Strange Breed in 2022!
MORE ABOUT STRANGE BREED:
Raw, feral, anthemic music for the underdogs – Strange Breed is the shift in alternative rock that you’ve been waiting for.
Reminiscent of 90’s femme-rock heroines like Veruca Salt, L7, Hole and Sleater-Kinney while channelling the modern-rock prowess of acts like The Pretty Reckless or Paramore, Nicolle Bell-Dupas (Vocals/Guitar), Terra Chaplin (Lead Guitar), Megan Bell-Dupas (Drums) and Jess Dubois (Bass) have perfected the art of serving memorable rock hooks with a filthy side of riot-grrrl rage. Through layers of distortion and unapologetically feminist lyrics, Strange Breed is the musical equivalent of jumping on your bed screaming at the top of your lungs at the injustices of the world.
STRANGE BREED IS:
Lead Vocals & Guitar: Nicolle Dupas
Lead Guitar & B/G Vocals: Terra Chaplin
