My name's Cop Car Bonfire, I'm from Vancouver originally. I started out my career with no intention of it ever becoming a career. I was experimenting a lot with sound and finding these amazing little rifts in my music that to me emulated a psychedelic experience.

I moved to Montreal and before I knew it people were asking me to do shows and things just picked up from there. I started doing small loft shows and I'm currently collaborating with Claire Boucher of Grimes on a project we call Membrain.

Listening to:
