Montreal's Geoffroy is back with another poignant video for his song, Raised by Wolves. Directed by Didier Charette, the documentary-style video was shot in May 2017 in Quaqtaq, Nunavik (Canada) and follows the life of a one-legged dog-sledding legend, Harry Okpik. The footage explores stunning snow-covered landscapes and the raw, natural interactions between the sled dogs and their master. Geoffroy's music is the perfect depiction of the dog musher’s sparse lifestyle, highlighting themes like nature’s savageness and brutal isolation. Raised by wolves, independent, born to kill, won't feel your pain.
Raised by Wolves is off Geoffroy’s full-length debut album, Coastline, released in March via Bonsound. Co-produced by Gabriel Gagnon, Max Gendron and Geoffroy, the Polaris Music Prize Long-Listed album features a solid mix of percussions, guitars, woodwinds, and analog keyboards and synths. Since its release, the album’s first single Sleeping on My Own has garnered over 4.2 million streams on Spotify, and Thirsty, his collaboration with Men I Trust, reached the top spot on HypeMachine. Geoffroy was also named Apple Music’s Favourite New Artist, and was the sole Canadian artist to play a showcase at Midem (France) in June.
Geoffroy kicked off his fall tour in Belgium and France last week, where he opened for Møme. He will perform in Paris on October 19th as part of the MaMA festival before flying to Los Angeles for a concert presented by Live Nation Ones To Watch on October 25th. He’ll then return to Canada, with shows scheduled in Quebec City (already sold-out), Toronto, Gatineau and more.
