Our November issue features les Shirley

Montreal, consider yourselves Shirley’d.

The November 2022 issue of Cult MTL has arrived, featuring an interview with les Shirley, a Montreal rock trio that connects the dots between ’90s grunge, 2000’s punk rock culture and catchy pop. The band is made up of three women, namely lead singer Raphaëlle Chouinard, bassist Sarah Dion and drummer Lisandre Bourdages (the latter two are also members of NOBRO). On the occasion of the release of their second album More Is More, Chouinard spoke with us about how the album reflects the times and defined what a Shirley is and what it means to get Shirley’d.
