By Norter

Norter, a five-member indie-rock band from Charlottetown, PEI, recently released their debut album, 12:34. It is available on all streaming platforms.

With this album, Norter touches on topics of love, emotion and time. The band draws inspiration from The Backseat Lovers, The Strokes, The Smiths and more. Norter has created their own unique sound, mixed with a distinct Maritime flare from close-knit collaborations in their local musical community. Recorded with PEI producer Colin Buchanan, 12:34 features hard hitting, heavy songs like “Funk Addict,” with classic indie rock instrumentals in “The Vespucci Ballroom.”  

 The band formed in 2020 and persevered through the pandemic to release their first single “Unfinished Business,” gaining more than 19,000 plays on Spotify. They recently completed their first tour across Canada.   

 Norter is taking their career to the next level as a Featured Artist in this year’s First Up with RBCxMusic program, which uplifts Canada’s emerging artists with resources and supports to get their story and music heard. Norter recently benefited from a performance at the Trailside Music Hall in Charlottetown to present their album, courtesy of this program.
