Villages

from Halifax, NS

A burst of nostalgia for their Cape Breton home while jamming on Rankin Family songs led Halifax pop-rock act Mardeen to form a musical alter ego, Villages. Brimming with traditional reels and Irish-influenced Celtic folk, Villages sing about life in the Maritimes as they pine for their rural home from cold urban landscape of the big city.

Villages released a self-titled, eight-song debut album in the spring of 2019, and while it is full of the traditional sounds of Cape Breton, they’ve added enough of their own pop sensibilities and non-traditional instruments such as synthesizers to put a singular mark on their heritage.
