Charlottetown scene favourites Racoon Bandit are celebrating 10 years as a group this fall. To mark a decade of Island indie-rock, Racoon Bandit recently released a split single of new songs - ‘Tattered Star’ and ‘Modern Life’ - with music videos for each.
The new tracks were produced by Colin Buchanan at The Hill Sound Studio . Says the producer, “For me, ‘Modern Life’ and ‘Tattered Star’ perfectly represent the two distinct identities of Racoon Bandit. Brash but angelic (‘Modern Life’) and classic but not ancestral (‘Tattered Star’).”
Buchanan continues, “Recording just two singles really put focus on finding the right sounds for each song. As for which is the ‘A-side’ and which is the B? We’ll let the listener decide.”
The group is comprised of Fraser McCallum, Roger Carter, Adam Gallant, and Buchanan. In the vein of East Coast stalwarts Sloan and Thrush Hermit, the Bandits share song-writing and vocal duties, bringing a varied sound and dynamic performance to both their records and the stage

In the halcyon days of CBC Radio-3, their first single ‘HAT’ climbed the charts, catching the ear of Grant Lawrence who dubbed it “…a pure hit”. Their award-winning debut was followed by the full-length, 'Into the Hills' which garnered three 2011 Music PEI Awards as well as an ECMA nod. Tours across Eastern Canada and Ontario would follow, as well as regional support for such greats as The Sadies, Al Tuck, Alvvays, Hannah Georgas, and (somehow) April Wine. The band's follow-up, Close Your Eyes, turned heads in 2015 landing nominations and several “Best-of” lists, including Mixtape Magazine‘s Top-10 East Coast and Top-45 Canadian records of the year. The Bandits’ work has also appeared in numerous web series, podcasts, and films, including the title theme for Just Passing Through and in several NFB productions.
