Les Jupes are a somewhat new band from the centre of Canada and in the middle of a prairie renaissance growing around Head In The Sand Records. The group capped off a great year in 2011 with the release of a new single “If This Is The Light.” A video followed this year.

“If This Is The Light” is a fantastic piano and synth-based song recorded over a year and half when Montreal producer/engineer Marcus Paquin (frontman of Last Gang’s Silver Starling) found time from working on Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs.

2011 was a big year for the quartet. Their debut album Modern Myths was released on Head In The Sand in Canada/USA and Instrument Village in Germany/Switzerland/Austria and garnered world wide critical acclaim. They toured Germany with Handsome Furs, again with Sweden’s Baskery, toured up and down North America – and they showcased at a pile of festivals including SXSW, Canadian Music Week, NXNE, Halifax Pop Explosion and Jazz Winnipeg.
