3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out new music from Dilly Dally, Anjulie and Fordy North
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 on Saturdays, with your guide to what's new and exciting in Ontario music.
Here are this week's picks:
Dilly Dally: Doom
I can only see Dilly Dally's star rising even higher with this new release.
Doom is from the band's new album Heaven, which dropped this week.
This track owes a ton to grunge, which invariably leads to automatic comparisons to Hole.
That's in no way a slight — I love the raw power of vocalist Katie Monks's voice here.
Anjulie: Hold Me Down
Hold Me Down is the latest single from Anjulie, and vocals on this track caught my attention right away.
It's the little inflections and shifts here that show the immense skill and control she has over her voice.
This is the sound of someone who has mastered her craft.
Fordy North: Rainy Day
I really enjoy the honest simplicity of Fordy North's Rainy Day.
It's just drums, organ and a killer bass line.
Couple that with solid lyrical prowess, and you've got everything this track needs.
