Chic Gamine
"Days and Days"

From the album Closer

Featured track, available from March 14 to March 22

There are plenty of Manitoba faces searching for the Texas sunshine as SXSW takes over Austin this week. The annual music mecca welcomes six Manitoba acts including the four playing this year's Manitoba showcase on March 14: Imaginary Cities, Royal Canoe, Boats, and Chic Gamine (Ruth Moody and KEN mode also have official showcases). Team Manitoba has generated some solid buzz this year, including a coveted spot for Chic Gamine on NPR's Austin 100. The Juno-winning soul/pop quintet is fresh from the digital release of its U.S. debut, Closer, which hits Amercian shelves on March 26. If you're lucky enough to be in Austin, search "sxsw" in the Live Music Calendar for the schedule of Manitoba performances. Regardless of where you are, Chic Gamine's "Days and Days" is our featured song this week and it's yours with the click of the download button. You can also watch the new video for the song, which features attire a bit more appropriate for March in Manitoba than Texas. While you're listening, read up on all the Austin accolades and much more right here.
