It’s been just over 12 months since the Canadian group released their debut LP, greeted with much press acclaim, a Polaris nomination, and near continual touring.
So when the band finally found time to hit the studio, new ideas came pouring forth in a deluge of new material.
Wide Open is led by new single ‘#53’ – an immence track dominated by Jasmyn Burke’s powerful vocal.
“We got back from the tour with Mitski on November 22nd and I started writing November 23rd,” she says. “We spent three months writing and pretty much figured out the album in its entirety in that time frame. With the year we had I think we really hit this sweet spot where your brain is fully ready for something new, but has absorbed all of this information and it all just spews out. It was all really based on initial instinct and we just sort of let music happen.”
“When writing “#53” I let out how I was feeling about a lot of things. Existing on the road, existing at home, living in a time when a lot of younger people feel helpless, it’s all given me a new vigor and desire to be ferocious with our music.”
