WHOOP- Szo
Renowned for their cross-genre experimentalism, unabashedly unique, WHOOP-Szo is a wild fusion of folk, metal, pop, grunge, and even classical musical stylings.

Though radically diverse in tone, WHOOP-Szo has crafted their many sounds well, and are able to create immersive musical tapestries that evoke deep emotions while conveying troubling stories of civil unrest via layered harmonies, churning guitar, gritty synth, and a whole psychedelic plethora of other noise.

Music aside, WHOOP-Szo is well known for the boundaries that they have bridged between social work, activism, and music making, not only in their hometown of London, Ontario, but also in various
communities across Turtle Island. As a band fronted by an indigenous artist, album and song themes often focus on issues like colonization, language, self-determination, and appropriation.

Outreach feats include the creation of an Inuit Youth silkscreen apprenticeship program in Salluit, QC and workshops on Solidarity Through Art in Kingsclear First Nation, NB amongst others.

Cope

Cope is two guys making enough noise for four people.
Cope is broken instruments and sprained wrists after a show.
Cope is jazz improvisation in a post rock song.
Cope is a two minute pop song with a six minute noise solo.
Cope is twin language.
