About

The fragility of life, love, and their counterparts; these are the things that shape our existence and the aptly named debut album Counterpart by new alt. rockers, Iduna.

Produced by Mark Makoway (Moist, David Usher), Iduna’s Counterpart is a guitar-driven nod to the great halls of alt. rock past. The introspective lyrics, sometimes wistful, sometimes fierce, are delivered with rich harmonies and stirring melodies.

Counterpart is a record consisting of the band’s most sincere moments. Each track is an attempt at vulnerability, articulating feelings of betrayal, injury, optimism, and compassion. The group strives for honesty in everything they do and brought that attitude to the studio. Seeking a like-minded producer, Iduna reached out to Mark who eagerly came on board after listening to a handful of demos. Together they sculpted songs over a period of many months, leading to a gratifying recording undertaking at PhaseOne Studios and Rumblecone in Toronto.

Unlike their carefully crafted music, the band came together effortlessly. All four members met through Craigslist after Jason Craig posted an ad seeking potential bandmates. Everyone hit it off instantaneously and a new dream was born. All four had been playing in bands based out of Ontario and the Maritimes for years, but Iduna has certainly evolved into their most robust project to date.

Spending their formative years playing Toronto-area festivals and the city’s many venues, Iduna are now hungry for a broader adventure. 2017 will see them perform all over Canada and anywhere that allows them to make the stage their home for an evening.

The group takes pride in making their performances an emotional experience. Iduna intensifies their concerts by incorporating lights, video, and movement on stage as much as possible. A group of well-rounded artists, each member gives everything they have while playing with the aim of enthralling each soul in attendance.

Iduna is Jason Craig, Trison Boyes, Tim Saulnier, and Craig Koziar.

September 8, 2017 – Something, Something Switchin’ It Up

Hey all! Summer has wound more or less to a close and much has happened! We released our first record, put out a couple of lyric videos, did a bunch of podcasts and interviews, played an awesome show at The Horseshoe, played some shows around Southern Ontario, Tim got married, and some other things happened. It’s been a blast and now we’re ready to take on some new challenges and mix things up.

For the next little while our home is going to be online. We’re sequestering ourselves in our studio and recording some demos for new songs that we’ll be sharing here and there, putting together some fun videos, and generally just trying to get the word out in different ways. We’re going to be busy making music and having fun. Don’t worry though, we’re not disappearing and we’ll be more visible and active than ever. You can follow everything here at IdunaMusic.com or by following us on our various social media platforms. Click on the links to the right to subscribe, like, follow, etc.
