Embodying the energy & ferocity of their animal namesake, Hyaenas is an Indie Rock/Synth Pop band taking the scene by storm since 2021. With fun, catchy hooks, their songs are written through a queer feminist lens - exploring meaningful themes from acceptance to vigilance, celebrating a love of nature, self worth, and social justice while drawing inspiration from 80’s icons The Go-Go’s to modern day Indie darlings The Beaches, and synth-pop power quartet Metric.
Hyaenas has been making waves across Canada with performances at NXNE, Folk on the Rocks, Squamish Constellation Festival, Coldsnap Festival, and Pride Festivals, sharing the stage with Lauren Ruth Ward, The Pack AD, Kimmortal, and Fake Shark. The palpable chemistry between Sophie Heppell (guitar, vocals), Jessie Robertson (bass), Jen Foster (drums) and Luvia Petersen (synth) make this group feel like it has always been.
Their debut EP “Little Trophy”, produced by coveted Vancouver producers Elisa Pangsaeng (Said The Whale, Yukon Blonde) and Jesse Gander (The Pack AD, White Lung), debuted at #11 on the National Earshot Radio Charts!
