Seems like I can’t keep away from here, especially when I hear a song that just gets me right away. “I Can Hardly Speak” by Bombay Bicycle Club is about struggling to express yourself in words and comes from the upcoming Jan 17th release of Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.
What a nice surprise in the inbox with the video for “Your Hands” by Toronto artist GRAE. This song follows her debut track “New Girl”, both from GRAE’s debut EP will be coming later this year (produced by UK based singer-songwriter KYAN). We’re to expect infectious pop hooks, smokey vocals and an infusion of jazz, dousted in female empowerment. Musically, this track makes me think Bishop Briggs-meets-Feist.
Speaking about the track Grae said:
“Your Hands” is about taking power back after being in a manipulative relationship. Giving everything to someone and allowing the situation to be dictated by them, it was in “their hands” until the tables turned and it wasn’t anymore. You gain your power back and realize your worth and tell this person you’re no longer here for their games.”
Super late to the game on this NYC band, but this song recently caught my ear while working away in a coffee shop (I thought it was actually Dan Black singing). “Suddenly” is the 3rd single off Future Generations‘ latest album Landscape (Frenchkiss Records) while came out last September 14. Take a listen.
Take a look at the latest video from the collaboration between Ryder Havdale and La+ch (Coleman Hell). “Eucalyptus” was filmed on Sproat Lake, BC at a cabin built by Havdale’s great grandfather in the ’40s. The video features some stunning drone shots of BC’s winter beauty, framed in this quite dark storyline. Take a look.
Saturday morning vibes.
“Fierce Lion” by Favela, from the album Community.
