Vancouver’s Hyaenas Return to The Grotto with Guests Carole & Evangeline

Embodying the energy and ferocity of their animal namesake, Hyaenas is an Indie Alt Pop band “boasting stellar musicianship, meaningful songwriting, incredible talent, and a unique sound that excels.” (Great Dark Wonder) Their songs are written through a queer feminist lens that explore all facets of Human Nature while drawing inspiration from 80’s icons The Go-Go’s to modern day Indie darlings The Beaches, and synth-pop band Metric.

Notable performances include headlining Sunshine Music Festival in Powell River, showcasing at NXNE in Toronto, and performing at Folk on the Rocks in Yellowknife, Nest Fest, Squamish Constellation Festival, Coldsnap Festival, Khatsahlano Street Party, and Western Canadian Pride Festivals including Warriors Pride Night at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Hyaenas have also shared the stage as direct support for Lauren Ruth Ward, The Pack AD, Kimmortal, Fake Shark, and Miesha & the Spanks. The palpable chemistry between Sophie Heppell (guitar, vocals), Jessie Robertson (bass), Jen Foster (drums) and Luvia Petersen (synth) can be felt on and off the stage.

Their debut EP “Little Trophy” (2023), produced by coveted Vancouver producers Jesse Gander (The Pack AD, White Lung) and Elisa Pangsaeng (Said The Whale, Yukon Blonde), debuted at #11 on the National !Earshot Radio Charts, has garnered over 100K online streams, and can be heard in Netflix series “My Life with the Walter Boys”.

“Bands such as Alvvays, Dear Rouge, and Metric may dominate this scene, but they best watch out – Hyaenas are poised to stake a legitimate claim up there with the best of them.” – Great Dark Wonder
