2017 marked the release of Moscow Apartment’s acclaimed self-titled debut EP that turned industry heads and won them a Toronto Independent Music Award and a Canadian Folk Music Award. The following year they clinched a Canadian Songwriting Contest prize and won Slaight Music’s ‘It’s Your Shot’ songwriting contest and its $100,000 grand prize in artist development. Fry and Padilla have spent the intervening years touring and developing their skills as producers and writers, receiving guidance from the likes of Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew and Grammy-winner Chin Injeti.
The duo produced Better Daughter in collaboration with Grammy winner Vance Powell (who produced Two Timer) and long time collaborator Guillermo Subauste, who assisted in bringing a poetic and multilayered collection of songs to life. Tackling subjects which range from internalized misogyny to the complicated nature of adolescence, the new E.P continues to bring electric crunch to indie folk.
