Made up of an ensemble cast of friends and family, Prayer Wheels is an Ottawa choir-rock band (yes, we’re not sure what that means either). It’s post-rock for short attention spans.
Boasting post-rock space-outs that launch into up-beat post-punk, Prayer Wheels is best compared to bands such as Fang Island, and And So I Watch You From Afar.
Prayer Wheels‘ debut EP “Spring” was released in June of 2016 digitally, with a cassette to follow.
