The Canadian rock duo of Crown Lands is thrilled to share their new music video for their single, “End Of The Road.” The track focuses on the Indigenous womxn, girls, and “two-spirits” who have been murdered or have gone missing after traveling on the Yellowhead Highway 16 in British Columbia, a.k.a. the Highway of Tears.
The music video features a cast of Indigenous womxn who deliver an incredible dance sequence throughout the video. The video was co-produced by Sage Nokomis Wright and choreographed by Mi’kmaq artist Teineisha Richards. The narrator features Canadian Inuk singer Tanya Tagaq.
Lead vocalist/drummer Cody Bowles (they/them) says, “I am half Mi’kmaw and violence against Indigenous people is something I have witnessed firsthand throughout my life. I identify as Two-Spirit and dream of a better world for the brilliant Indigenous womxn, girls, and 2SLGBTQ+ people who face adversity every day for their very existence.”
You can find the track on the duo’s upcoming self-titled album due out August 13.
