Alternative Indie Pop

About

Percussive familial pop.

Mitten Claps is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and consists of brothers Jonathan and Randall Hildebrand. The duo's music is at turns energetic and sparse, spastic and delicate, showcasing intricate guitars and melodic vocals interwoven with unpredictable rhythms.

In 2009, both brothers were musically on their own, after each having played in different previous bands. After aimlessly rehearsing and writing together while hoping for a new band to materialize, they decided it was already fully-formed at two members, and started writing and performing as Mitten Claps.   

Can't Not is the band's first full-length album, following a pair of EPs in 2012 and 2013. The record is a culmination of a long, stop-and-start writing and recording process that stretched out over several years, and contains brand new songs along with some that have been in various forms of existence since the band’s inception. With the brothers having played music together for almost ten years, ‘Can’t Not’ embodies a sense of familiarity, while hinting at the excitement and restlessness of the unknown.
