Fresh Start

Posted: April 21, 2017 in Uncategorized

Spring always signifies the dawn of new beginnings, an attempt to move forward, the season of blooming. Here are a few shiny new(ish) tunes to brighten your minds, as you venture out of the old, and into the new.

“White Flag” by Joseph

Hailing from Portland, Oregon, this trio of sisters hit the charts with this single back in late 2016. Off their sophmore album I’m Alone, No You’re Not, this track is guaranteed to make you fearless and never willing to surrender.

 

“Human” – Rag’n’Bone Man

UK’s Rag’n’Bone Man – aka Rory Graham – will prove to you you should never judge a book by its cover. The debut track off his 2017 debut album, Human, shows he’s got the kind of vocal chops that are, real, raw, and slathered in emotion. Also: it’s a great “I’m over you” track.

 

“All the Pretty Girls” by Kaleo

These Icelandic rock musicians channel their inner Bon Iver, with this soft, sweet song. It shows off their incredible versatility as artists, as it’s in a completely different direction than other tracks on 2016’s A/B. Here’s to trying new things, and completely pulling them off.

 

“Love” by Lana Del Rey

Indie songstress is back with the first single off her 5th studio album, Lust for Life, slated for release later this year. It’s a classic Del Rey track: a little moody, a little heavy, a little nostalgic, and whole lot of love, hope and beauty.

 

“Knocking at the Door” by Arkells

This track from this Hamilton-based group serves only one purpose: get you all riled up and ready to face anything and everything life throws your way. So bring it.

(Also: note all the Toronto footage.)
