Charlottetown music scene favourites Racoon Bandit are celebrating 10 years as a group this summer and have released two new singles. To mark a decade of Island indie-rock, Racoon Bandit have released a split-single of songs—”Tattered Star” and “Modern Life”—with music videos for each. 

Find them at iTunes, Spotify, and Bandcamp. Music videos for both singles have been created by PEI’s Chris Robison (Farmhouse Creative Labs; sound editor, Freaks & Geeks documentary).

The group is comprised of Fraser McCallum, Roger Carter, Adam Gallant, and Colin Buchanan. In the vein of East Coast stalwarts Sloan and Thrush Hermit, the Bandits share song-writing and vocal duties, bringing a varied sound and dynamic performance to both their records and the stage.

The Bandit’s new tracks were produced by Colin Buchanan at The Hill Sound Studio in Charlottetown. Says the producer, “For me, ‘Modern Life’ and ‘Tattered Star’ perfectly represent the two distinct identities of Racoon Bandit. Brash but angelic (‘Modern Life’) and classic but not ancestral (‘Tattered Star’).”
