On Nov. 1, Langley band The Kwerks are releasing their holiday EP, Lights.

The Kwerks release holiday EP

Langley band's second record of the year features four new holiday songs

With winter just around the corner, today (Nov. 1) the Kwerks have released a brand new holiday EP with fresh new sounds to help celebrate the season.

Titled Lights, this is the second record the Langley-based folk-pop duo, Ryan and Laura Koch, have made this year.

The EP features four songs that Laura has written, ranging from the ambient and haunting Into the Forest to the bluegrass country hoedown Lights.

“The hope is to release some fresh music into the mix,” Laura said.

“Everyone loves the classic holiday songs, but there’s something great about hearing something fresh and new that stirs you up and gets you more connected with the holidays.”

The Kwerks released their debut EP in April, and spent the summer playing stages across the Lower Mainland, including at the inaugural Fraser Valley Music Awards, where they were nominated in the pop category.

“I’ve been doing music for years, but have only shared it with the public this past year, and it’s really affirming to see how well received it is,” Laura said.
