Hailing from Saskatoon, Canada, deep in the bowels of the near arctic countryside, Powder Blue have unleashed on the public, their own unique blend of chilled psychedelic rock and shoegaze grunge.
In their two years together, Powder Blue have played countless sold out shows across Canada, released their debut EP Dream In Black in 2013 and this year, took to the UK to play storming shows at The Great Escape Festival and Liverpool Sound City.
They now announce news of their follow up EP, II will be self-released on December 8th.

The 6-track EP, II, is a haunting score of hazy keys, lush reverbed guitars and warm harmonies that echoes the likes of Besnard Lakes, Frankie Rose and The Stone Roses.
Powder Blue are Shelby Gaudet (vocals, guitar), Amber Kraft (drums, percussion) and Gaudet’s husband Christopher Laramee (guitar) – who joined the band earlier this year. Additionally for this tour Barrett Ross (Kraft’s husband) will be joining them (bass, vocals).
The quartet will return to Europe in December for a string of tour dates including two London shows.
