3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out new music from Paragon Cause, The Beelays and The Redhill Valleys
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:
Paragon Cause: Drop Me In
Paragon Cause's newest track Drop Me In is a little subversive, just for how understated it initially feels.
It starts slow, but continuously builds throughout.
There are also some seriously gorgeous harmonies here.
The Beelays: Rest Easy
Rest Easy from The Beelays is a blast of funk that's the first to feature the band's new vocalists, Emily Kemp and Jocelyn Russell.
It also features Hamilton MC Lee Reed, who is as expressive as ever here.
The band's latest EP, Hoss, drops on March 1.
The Redhill Valleys: Living in Yesterday
I'll freely admit that I'm not a massive country fan, but the new Redhill Valleys tune Living in Yesterday is definitely worth a listen.
This track is expertly performed and produced, and features some phenomenal vocal lines.
Even I can get behind this kind of twang.
