Have you heard the latest from Hey Rosetta!? Take a listen to the song “Kintsukuroi”, off the upcoming album Second Sight (out Oct. 21st, 2014).
Kintsukuroi is a reference to the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold or silver, and asserts that the item is more beautiful for being broken. Lyrically, it is a song about love, real broken love and seeing flaws as well as the possibility for redemption and repair.
The fourth studio album from the Newfoundland-based band was produced in Montreal at MixArt Studios by Marcus Paquin (Arcade Fire, The National, Stars) and has them exploring more space and experimental sounds in their music. “We let tones and effects direct the arrangements more than ever,” says lead singer and songwriter Tim Baker. “If a certain direction sounded more compelling than the most obvious or comfortable or planned route, we’d go down that path and see where it lead. Marcus really fostered an atmosphere of experimentation and positivity and found a way to get the best out of everyone.” “There was an ethos of discovery and experimentation that helped boost creativity. It was all about chasing sounds,” adds Romesh Thavanathan, cellist, and multi-instrumentalist.
Here’s the album teaser for “Second Sight”.
