3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out some brand new music from Stuck on Planet Earth, Bahamas and The Elwins
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:
Stuck on Planet Earth: Permanent
It's tunes like this one that prove that Stuck on Planet Earth is a power trio in the truest sense.
This track alternates between sugary vocal hooks and a driving backbeat.
There's just enough grit here to really draw my attention, too.
Bahamas: No Wrong
No Wrong is from Earthtones, which comes out on Jan. 19.
Everything about this track just feels effortless.
It's so serene that it would make an earthquake seem calm.
The Elwins: Hey, Ya You
Like most Elwins tunes, the chorus burrowed into my head right away.
Hey, Ya You is from the band's latest LP Beauty Community.
If Thing from the Addams Family had a favourite video, this would be it.
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.
