3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out some brand new music Teen Ravine, Adult Future and Monowhales
Every day, musicians write, record and release new music in Ontario — so each week, we're bringing you some of our favourites.
Music columnist Adam Carter is on CBC Radio One's In the Key of C and Big City Small World on Saturdays, with your guide to what's new and exciting in Ontario music.
Here are this week's picks:
Teen Ravine: Hall of Horrors
This ethereal pop track comes to us from Teen Ravine.
It's from their debut EP, which comes out in October.
This duo is made up of Nick Rose from Dwayne Gretzky and Dan Griffin, who was once in Arkells.
That songwriting and performance pedigree really shows here. I'm willing to bet this track totally blows up.
Monowhales: Take it Back
Monowhales (formerly known as Ginger Ale & the Monowhales) just dropped a brand new single and video for Take It Back.
This is a meticulously crafted pop track.
It's the sort of thing that will burrow itself into your brain after just one listen.
Adult Future: Gluegun
Do you love Jamiroquai? Do you yearn for the old days, when Muse were still good and could crank out dance tunes alongside symphonic rock?
Then you'll probably enjoy this tune from Adult Future. It's from their brand new album The Dufferin Jog.
The band says this album is made for people who still want to dance in times of fear and confusion.
My dancing is more inclined to cause fear and confusion, so I'll spare you. But this is a great track.
GTHA listeners can catch Adam on Big City Small World on Saturdays at 5 p.m. ET, on 99.1 FM. Listeners across the rest of the province can hear him on In the Key of C at 5 p.m.
