After a decade with Toronto based post-rock noise-stretchers ‘Fresh Snow’, Bradley Davis a.k.a. Affiliate Links recognised the need to re-frame things. Looking back to this time last year he recalls feeling “…compelled to make music filled with words and free from the red tape that can go along with a band”. Taking advantage of the …

Former Bullies Stranger
