Nothing last forever in the music world – breakups least of all. In February of this year, Frog Eyes’ Carey Mercer announced he was getting the band back together after a four year hiatus. Two months later, the beloved Victoria, BC-based band released its comeback record, The Bees. It was a triumphant return for a band that never really went away, so much as temporarily morphed into a new project, Soft Plastics. The band’s return – coupled with the pandemic – have offered a unique moment for reflection. Mercer joins us to discuss 20 years of Frog Eyes, while navigating the group’s place in an ever-shifting musical landscape.
