Better Human is the dazzling new album and confident follow-up to 2015’s internationally acclaimed Golden. The new album and garnered attention from CBC q9/10 with ExclaimGlobal TV Morning Show, Spill Magazine, Toronto Guardian, Canadian Beats, London Fuse, Music Life Magazine, CBC Radio One, and The Strombo Show. Compelling themes like the birth of a child (Night Sky), the struggle for life balance (Fight For Time), the workday reality propping up our outward façade (Hard Line) are all fearlessly explored on the 9 song-collection, with vocal assists from luminaries Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Paper Bird/Bahamas singer Carleigh Aikins plus Sarah MacDougall and Maia Davies, who, respectively, co-wrote Better Days and Fight For Time, the album’s meditative lead single.  

Kunder teamed up with engineer/producer Aaron Goldstein at Baldwin Street Sound last fall, welcoming a host of esteemed players — bassist Anna Ruddick (Randy Bachman, Bry Webb, Ben Caplan), Arkells drummer Tim Oxford and keyboardist Anthony Carone, violinist Drew Jurecka, Wintersleep drummer Loel Campbell, among others.
