"Mise en Scene is a indie/power pop group that you need to know about. While one can gather references of Hole, Dum Dum Girls, The Distillers, and others, the group’s songwriting remains refreshingly unique." - Culture Collide
“...one of the most compelling albums you’ll hear this year." - CBC Music
“ ...Johnson and Dunlop have hit upon a sound that recalls elements of Hole, Dum Dum Girls and even Tegan and Sara, circa The Con.” - Winnipeg Free Press
"While Johnson is capable of a husky snarl almost reminiscent of the Distillers' Brody Dalle, she can also deliver soaring, clear melodies along the lines of Neko Case with just as much vigour.” - Exclaim, 8/10
“A dynamic and involving new track off the forthcoming album, “Light In The Night” kicks off with fiery percussive guitars while frontwoman Johnson struts her fierce punk chops.” - The Big Takeover
"radiant and resonant" - Northern Transmissions

What's The Story about Mise en Scene?
A nod to the 90s riot grrrl in both prose and punk prowess, Mise en Scene was founded by art school friends Stefanie Blondal Johnson and Jodi Dunlop (drums). The duo are joined by Corey Hykawy (bass) for their latest effort. Following their critically acclaimed 2012 debut, the band received a 2014 SiriusXM Indies Award nomination and toured extensively, making appearances at Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, a show in downtown Paris to over 15,000 people and SXSW earlier this year. Still Life On Fire is a 12-track reflective tour de force of irresistible hooks, rib-rattling guitar, vocal melodies that range from lush and playful to biting and raw.
