The SirensSound presents Rob Dickson's new single, "Water Rushing In". 

"I’ve always thought a lot about how my experiences and memories colour my view of the world, and how they establish predispositions and biases. A lot of people never acknowledge how coloured their vision of the world is. I think the effect of this is only amplified as the world continues to become more violent and torn.

I wrote a lot of the songs on Looking Through Your Window, my forthcoming new record, while I was traveling, looking out the windows of planes, trains, and cars. When I started compiling songs for the album, I noticed that a lot of what I wrote included characters grappling with memories and perspective. My first single, “Water Rushing In,” is a portrait of a hybrid character I created who’s life was profoundly impacted by colonization and industrialization. He is looking back on his life and trying to make sense of it all."

New album "Hold up to the Fire" by Echo Nebraska

2018-06-20 04:38:22 UTC

0013116799 10

Hold up to the Fire, Echo Nebraska’s sophomore effort sees the Vancouver folk-rock outfit expand on their reputation of combining soul-strung acoustic songs with melodic pop sensibilities. They were determined to write music that was universally accessible and affirming, focusing on introspective themes of love, loss, and perseverance.

The mission to spread positivity to a wider audience stems from heartbreak within the band itself. In September 2016, bassist and founding member, Gunn Park passed away after a battle with cancer. Even though this was a difficult time for the band, they focused on channeling this loss in a positive direction. This is apparent in the album’s first single ‘Follow Me’. As songwriter Devan Christodoulou puts it, “The song is all about life and how it’s okay to rely on each other to get us through the tough times.”

Devan, Gunn, and multi-instrumentalist Andy Schichter started Echo Nebraska in the fall of 2014, with the release of a music video for ‘Hey, Allison’. Within a week of the video premiering, CBC Music added the video to their list of Best New Music Videos. Their debut EP, Send the Ships, would eventually chart across several campus stations, reaching a high of #3 on CJSF.

The band spent the next couple of years touring Send the Ships across Canada, with drummer Mike Lauder, violinist Carly Frey, and bassist Dan Ponich. After showcasing at BreakOut West 2016 in Regina, SK and CMW 2017 in Toronto, ON, Echo Nebraska turned their attention to writing the songs that would eventually make up the new record. The title track, ‘Hold up to the Fire’ was written in honor of Park, weeks after his passing. Though Park never got to perform on Hold up to the Fire, his presence is felt throughout the record.

Echo Nebraska returned to the studio this past winter with producer Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, Holly McNarland, The Dudes), who helped hone in on the direction the band was taking with their new collection of songs. Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Yukon Blonde, New Pornographers) was brought on to mix the album.

Ultimately, despite the loss of their friend and bandmate, Echo Nebraska pushed their musical direction forward on Hold up to the Fire, resonant with messages of hope, love, and the power of human relationships.

New album " In Bad Faith" by Feel Alright

2018-05-25 05:12:58 UTC

Feel 2

In Bad Faith feels very much like a negotiation of what it's like to actually be in that home — seeing it as a container of warmth, comfort, conflict, turbulence, love, death, food, sleep… The songs run the gamut between nostalgic power pop love songs to darker ballads reflecting on what it's like to go home again when you know you can't go home again. 

"When I started "Feel Alright", I was living in the US and I started writing and recording music as a means of conjuring an idealized sense of home from a distance."

New single "Baby" by Basement Revolver

The SirensSound presents the new single "Baby" by Basement Revolver.

"Baby is about feeling sad and down even though you are generally happy about everything and everyone in your life. It’s about feeling confused about what I want in life, and how that affects other people. It is about crying a lot and feeling like I was burdening my partner with those questions. It is also about my tendency to retreat when things get too overwhelming, to spend all day and night in my bed and watching netflix and eating doritos. "Baby" was written at a point in my relationship where I was so happy with my partner and with the things in my life at that point – but I felt an overall dissatisfaction and sadness that I couldn’t explain. I’d be having a really nice date, and I would start crying, and I didn’t know why. Sadness was just there, sitting with me in uncertainty. So I dealt with it by trying to sleep it off, or hanging out on my own. I felt like this depressive state was affecting those around me in a negative way and I felt guilty about that.

The chorus on this one pretty much states clearly how I was feeling – “Baby I’m so sorry, I’m trying my best to figure this out, I swear that I’m so happy, this crying won’t fix what’s already broken and dead, just give me some time”.

"Baby" will be part of the new album ‘Heavy Eyes’ out this summer via Sonic Unyon (North America) & fear of missing out (UK).

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
