Take a listen to “Good Sex”, is the first single from Darlings – the sophomore album from Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew (out March 18th). Darlings has Drew stepping out more on his own, seven years after BSS with more experience and maturity. The album features a focused and refined sound; more honest, revelatory songwriting, with Drew’s craft concentrated on lyrical and emotional connections, less so than guitar pedals and studio jams.
Darlings features longtime collaborators Charles Spearin and Ohad Benchetrit (Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene) along with Dean Stone (Apostle of Hustle) and Dave Hamelin (The Stills). Darlings was co-produced by Dave Hamelin, Kevin Drew and Graham Lessard.
“This record is a celebration of memories. It’s about the rise and fall of love and sex, in my own life and in today’s society. This topic has been with me for years. I approached it focused purely on the songwriting, leaving all the tricks and explosions behind. I hope you like it… and if you don’t, give to someone who will.” – Kevin Drew
I’m liking this track, The National fans might too.
