Ingeborg von Agassiz, “Sun Beats Down”

Emily Haavik & the 35s, “Candle (Live)”

Emily Haavik & the 35s spend a lot of time driving from Duluth to Minneapolis and vice versa — hence the name. After spending years in Duluth, Haavik recently moved to Minneapolis, and she’s been writing and recording the band’s upcoming debut album with Jason McGlone of the Hideway Studios (here he is again). If you’d like to support the band, check out their GoFundMe page.

Michelle Truax, Sarah Feyder, and Aaron Boothe helped work on this catchy “Candle” video at Duluth’s Scratch Studios.
