How a year has changed for Keith Mosfet.
Previously posted about him in 2018.
Looks like he did a complete 180.
Ditching the indie folk-rock to more of a angsty retro-rock sound with Superficial Hypocrite.
About the song:
“I wanted to write a song that would take the piss out of my generation and I.
Naturally, I went for the jugular of our fake Instagram lifestyle.
Putting a mirror to myself while also placing a mirror on the people surrounding me, “Superficial Hypocrite” is full of self-deprecating humour about the collective stupidity we’ve all fallen victim to.”
Toronto musician Drew Chale wants people to motivate themselves with his synth-pop song called Motivate Me.
Today he drops the single which is his first of many to come from his debut album which will be released in August.
Drew’s lyrics are inspired by life changing events, people, and imaginary stories.
Although his style of music is quite unique, this single grabs attention with its catchy melody as it is carefully blended together with Drew’s honest voice filled with true emotion.
With his release of ‘Motivate Me’, Drew will be bringing his synthpop vision to life with a motivational twist to the mix.
Have a listen to the song.
Don’t know how long we have to wait for new material from Caribou.
But Dan Snaith’s other project Daphni just released a new track based around Bermudian band Paradise’s 1981 track ‘Sizzlin Hot’.
From their album of the same name, released by themselves and largely forgotten until it was reissued by Frederiksberg Records in 2017, Daphni updates this lost gem for today’s dancefloor.
Made originally to be played in his DJ sets but now released (with the full approval of the original band) Dan quickly realised that he was on to something special: “From the very first time I played it on New Years Eve 2018, it lights up the room every time I play it. The hook is so immediate – people respond to it like it’s a song they already know and love.”
‘Sizzling’ will appear alongside 3 other tracks made to play in Dan’s recent DJ sets on an EP to be released soon.
Toronto musician Nina Browwn released a track called Are You Still Mine?.
Featuring world renown artist Shatta Wale, this single is a collaborative effort on both parts to bring about a refreshing R&B pop tune to 2019.
With an Island-style melodic instrumental, Brownn’s soothing voice, and a fire-starting hook in the chorus, ‘Are You Still Mine’ is on its way to becoming one of the feel good vibes of the summer.
Previously posted about this band back in April.
The second single from Montreal band Hoozbah is called Be My Queen.
Nice groovy psych-rock British inspired tune to get you dancing and twisting for the summer.
About the song:
In contrast to the moodier, expansive sound of their first release, ‘Kneel to the Power‘, Be My Queen is an upbeat rocker that doesn’t hesitate to pack a punch from the get-go. Written for Naz’s “Rather fine dime of a woman,” the song’s addictive groove is sure to win the hearts of many more music lovers when it reaches their ears. While harking back to the good ol’ days of rock n’ roll, this single manages to add something new and fresh to the genre, both nostalgic and forward-looking at the same time. Featuring vintage organ sounds, pumping bass lines, and soaring saxophones – not to mention a roaring guitar solo at its heart – Be My Queen will have listeners moving and grooving like a “sex machine” all summer long.
