The Wilderness of Manitoba prefers to characterize itself as an evolving entity. The band’s newest album, Between Colours, is as far-reaching as anything in its catalogue. They feel that it speaks to what an album means to them: that it’s between the one previous and the next one along, and that each album is its own colour. “When a band isn’t changing, it’s not growing,” says guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist Will Whitwham. From the band’s inception, it has redefined itself with every album; from Hymns of Love and Spirits through When You Left The Fire, Island of Echoes and The Leslieville Sessions. The evolution of their sound has run the gamut from four part harmonies and chamber folk to their current more cinematic arrangements.
