Raveen – Always [Listen]

Montreal band Raveen released their leading single from their upcoming album Always.
The title track from the same name from the album came together immediately after their singer/producer Eric took a long and introspective trip to Europe.
There’s a lot of love in this song. Thematically, it serves as a good summary of the of rest of the record; themes of loss as it relates lost love but also grief, and the perceived loss of something magic in the early stages of adulthood.
It is the most collaborative 3 minutes they have ever worked on.
It features all three members, plus contributions from ten or more vocalists and four or five string players.
Have a listen to the track.

Always, their full length album drops on July 28, 2017.

They are back!!
Ottawa’s Fevers released the music video for I’m Coming.
It is taken from their second full-length album, Apologia that drops on July 7, 2017.
“Having already put Canada’s capital on the independent electronic music scene with their debut album, ‘No Room For Light’ (2013), Ottawa band FEVERS hope to break new ground with their eagerly anticipated sophomore LP Apologia. Helped along by the inspired mixing of Grammy-nominated Damian Taylor (Björk, Austra, Braids)2, Apologia offers bigger beats, brighter synths and soaring vocals from Sarah Bradley.”
The video is the brainchild of Ottawa motion graphics artist Will Reid, imagining a retro-futurist world enveloping front-woman, Sarah Bradley.

Catch FEVERS live at Ottawa Bluesfest on July 12th

The band formerly known as Shahman changed their name to Low Sun.
They released their first single called Into Sun (Enough with the Sun already LOL) on Art of the Uncarved Block.
Here is a blurb about the track:
“Lyrically on “Into Sun” we wanted to experiment with how we could dissect and ultimately expand on the seemingly mundane experiences people tend to let pass them by. Mostly, we were curious as to what separates an everyday, or random observation, with one that is powerfully religious in its essence. Sometimes we are unaware that attention and perception are the only things that separate the two.”
Have a listen to the song.

Reminder that they will be in Ottawa on July 14th at Pressed.
Details are on here.

Montreal indie dance band Men I Trust dropped their music for their slow jam chill-pop track called You Deserve This.
We recorded You Deserve This last summer. We weren’t supposed to do any music that afternoon, we were really chilled out and in a great mood. We were playing with some rhythms and started having fun with detuned and off-phase synths. We recorded the guitars and the final vocals last month following our initial idea: it’s all about relaxing, wishing good to oneself and others and the nostalgic joy of feeling part of the universe
