Yes We Mystic

A five-piece group from Winnipeg, Yes We Mystic grabs ideas and aesthetics from all over the map and ventures to morph them into something entirely different. They take their favorite bits of folk, rock, and R&B, hurl strings and mandolins together with synthesizers, pedals, and samples, and come up with music that can mellow and groove but climb in an instant to towering, frenzied heights. Throwing opposites together creates a space. Yes We Mystic prides itself in living in these spaces.

Yes We Mystic is of a brand-new generation of Winnipeg musicians. Although relatively young, this band is no stranger to the stage. Front man Adam Fuhr and drummer Jordon Ottenson have toured the globe as part of the cavernous indie-rock band Les Jupes; cellist Jodi Plenert also performs with indie-pop weirdos Boats. Solana Johannson, a classically trained violinist, plays with J.P. Hoe. These are artists who have learned from best.

2013 was a big year for Yes We Mystic. Not only did they record and release their debut EP Floods and Fires, they also were signed to Head in the Sand records, charted on campus radio stations across the country, toured Western Canada, played a pile of festivals, and began writing the songs for their next release. 2014 will be bigger still. Already, they have headlined a sold out show at Big Fun Festival and performed at JUNOfest, and are looking forward to a full Canadian tour this summer—including stops at NXNE, The Winnipeg Jazz Festival, and Harvest Moon. All this before beginning preliminary work on their full length debut in the fall.

By employing unconventional structures and delicately woven melodies, the band created Floods and Fires, a tapestry that The Uniter called “at once sombre and yet variably forceful” and that BeatRoute called “an album for any situation.” The EP is rooted heavily in the sounds of folk—an element still incorporated, if de-emphasized, in their newer work. For their new record, the band is crafting similar songs with a different method than before; by approaching genre as a tool rather than a barrier, a wider swath of sounds is available to convey the style and emotion that the band has valued since the start.
