New Wales

Indie Pop Rock

New Wales


In the throes of raising a combined 12 children (including triplets), muddling their way through adult corporate land, building violins, and putting out actual fires, New Wales have taken the pressures of day-to-day life and turned it into an impressive creative pace. The indie rock band is made up of Winnipeg music scene stalwarts, lead singers David Pankratz (Quinzy, Federal Lights) and Sandy Taronno (Quinzy, Indicator Indicator) are joined by Rusty Matyas (Rusty Robot, Imaginary Cities), Matthew Harder (Spirit of the West), Christy Taronno (Paper Machetes), and Conally MacLean.

In 2021 the band released 8 singles along with accompanying videos and signed a music placement deal with Dawn Patrol Music. They were recently nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for 'Rock Artist of the Year' and are preparing to release the first two singles, 'All Falls On Me' and 'Stick to the Story' from their forthcoming LP release (Spring 2023). The two new videos, shot at The Chroma Ranch by Martin Lafreniere and Phillippe Bellefeuille will be released December 9th, 2022.

The 8 singles and videos released in 2021, along with strong, sold-out shows in their hometown of Winnipeg, MB have helped the band develop a solid, loyal fan-base and the band looks forward to using that momentum to launch their upcoming Spring 2023 LP release.
