  • Iduna

    Iduna

    Alternative Rock

    Canada’s progressive modern rock four piece IDUNA brings emotionally raw and sonically polished original music to the masses, taking on the challenges of our world today in both word and action. Passionate and heavy, their twin lead vocal and guitar-driven sound never lets up thanks to the melodic and lyrical interplay between Jason Craig and Trison Boyes. 

    Equal parts beauty and muscle, Toronto Music Reviews  describes their live performance as “intense and epic...”, where ethereal atmospherics give way to thunderous riffs, driving rhythms, and layers of deep groove courtesy of bassist Tim Saulnier. Anchored by the precise and powerful drumming of Craig Koziar, Jason and Trison’s guitars and voices soar triumphantly, sometimes accusingly, always with honest, often gut-wrenching emotion.  This approach is reflected in their sensibilities that pay homage to the loud-soft dynamics of the grunge era and builds on the fundamental sounds of modern alternative rock with a deepening melodic intensity, clarity and stunning harmonies to match.

    After four years of perfecting their sound and performing across southern Ontario, IDUNA are both proud and humbled to share their debut album with their fans and the rest of the world. IDUNA’s new 2017 release, Counterpart is an exploration of our human relationships, the ways in which we are counterparts to one another time and time again. Faithfully capturing their live sound and energy, IDUNA’s Counterpart is the perfect accompaniment to their powerful performances.

    Their debut release 'Showtunes From the Basement' was met with wide acclaim in Canada and the UK for it's mixed bag of genre-hopping, attitude-laden tracks and the follow up, 'Post-Iconica' eclipsed even that with rave reviews across the board. With 3 festival dates and a UK/Ireland tour all confirmed, 2018 is shaping up to be Free the Cynics' year.
