We got some new Skye Wallace the other day, and it is a perfect song for a dreary, rainy weekend morning.
“Suffering for You” is the latest single off her upcoming self-titled album, due out June 7. The dark and haunting song was “written during my time as the Dawson City Music Festival’s songwriter in residence in the Yukon.” says Skye. “I was there for the month of January in a big (potentially haunted) heritage house by myself, with very few hours of daylight, and a wealth of history and inspiration to prompt me to write. The song was inspired by the story of a group of people who were separated from their expedition, trapped on an ice floe in the arctic for months.”
Got a song for your Friday morning dance break!
”Catching Feelings” by Mathew V is his latest single and the first new music we’ve got from him since his debut album (The Fifth) was released around this time last year!
If this is any indication of what we’re going to get for the next album, I’m quite excited. Have a listen below.
The Strumbellas had a pretty great week.
First, their new album Rattlesnake was released, and the single we’re featuring today, “I’ll Wait” was used by the Blue Jays for their opening day montage, and just last night, they were on Late Night with Seth Myers performing “Salvation”!
Not too shabby Strumbellas. Excited to see what’s next, and if there’s a Vancouver tour date in the near future.
When part of your press release starts with “In 2015, Jon Bryant joined a cult…” you get quite intrigued, or at least, I do.
While the lens he wrote the album (Cult Classic) from has to do with how he saw the world after leaving the cult, the single “Ya Ya Ya Ya” is specifically about relationships, and communication breakdown.
It’s got a heavy Childish Gambino “Redbone” vibe at the beginning for me, and is quite catchy.
You can see Jon at the Biltmore Cabaret on May 5th!
I’m just going to say it, these guys are crazy fools, and I got cold just watching the video!
Close Talker decided to film a video for their single “Half Past Nine” on Vancouver Island, mid-winter, and I’m shocked they didn’t lose a few toes in the process!
It’s the first new single since 2017, and I couldn’t find anything else about an album…yet. Will have to keep an eye out, I’m sure we’ll here more soon after they’ve warmed up.
I couldn’t think of a good song to choose for April Fools, so instead you’re going to get a beautiful track by one of my favourite voices (AND a gorgeous video to boot).
Luca Fogale just released a new single “Half-Saved” from his upcoming record, which you can hear below, and will be in town this week on the 3rd and 4th supporting Dermot Kennedy at the Commodore Ballroom.
He’s also scheduled to perform at the Constellation Festival in July in Squamish, so you can listen to the new track and pretending you’re in the summer sunshine listening beneath the Chief.
Only a few more days until Toronto band Partner release their new album Saturday the 14th.
The other day, they gave us their first french song, which if you have heard some of the other songs we have shared of theirs, you might be taken by surprise.
It’s a Céline Dion inspired power ballad, with an epic guitar solo…and really, I wouldn’t expect anything less from these two.
The english version will also be on the album, which is due out on April 5th, and I implore you to come see them when they come to Vancouver next month with Wintersleep at the Commodore Ballroom on April 26th!
