Declan O'Donovan, Yukon-based singer/songwriter released his second album, Broken Sky on June 2nd. We followed up with O'Donovan about the new album, his incredible music video for single "Down to the Bottom", the new dance-move that will be sweeping the nation and much more. O'Donovan charmed us with his humour, unique voice and a seriously well done album - read on to learn more and join us in obsessing over Broken Sky.
Many people say walking in the woods and feeling the earth under your feet can provide mental health benefits, giving us energy and making us feel calm and grounded. That feeling is certainly real for me, and Stratford, Ontario artist Cat Clyde channels it on her debut album, Ivory Castanets.
It tells the story of someone trying to get out of a potential hookup, running through a series of hilarious excuses many of us can relate to giving while on a night out - while actively denying "giving excuses."
The Wild Romantics darken their sound in new single, Hungry Teeth. The single embraces a dark-folk sound, with low vocals exchanged between Aleisha and Evan. It's unique, refreshing and shines a light on their musical strengths.
The track is frustrated and energy fueled, diving right into a chaotic mental state. It showcases their ability to hide raw hooks inside a nest of razor blade overdrive and pounding drums. The perfect anthem for anyone who feels like they aren't living up to someone's unrealistic expectations.
Featuring all three musicians, plus contributions from ten or more vocalists and five string players (some of their best friends, included), "Always" is a song with a lot of love in it. It feels like listening to this single without watching a slow-motion ballet-dance is just doing it wrong.
