Canadian music legends, Our Lady Peace, join PausePlay host, Zac Monson, to chat about life in the 90s, fears of relevancy, the Tragically Hip, pants ripping, Kendrick Lamar collabs, and so so much more!
Our Lady Peace returns after a 6-year absence with Maida behind the mixing console and keeping things old school and simple. Needless to say, the sound of OLP still survives and is stronger than ever. Their latest album, Somethingness, hits all the right feels. All the elements you might expect from these Canadian legends remain but are propelled forward with a production twist a la 2018. Our Lady Peace is polished, clean, and focused. Make sure to give their album a listen, from start to finish.
