3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out new music from Jaunt, Versa and Gillian Nicola
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:
Jaunt: On Your Mind
Jaunt calls On Your Mind a combination of Timbaland programming circa 2002 meshed with Arthur Russell lyrical sincerity.
To me, it's an impeccably produced track that just feels like summertime.
That's a feeling I'm pretty certain we all need right about now.
Versa's V started out as a band exercise to see just how many loops they could layer on top of each other.
It evolved into this track, which really is crackling with energy.
Gillian Nicola: Night Comes to Call
Night Comes to Call is from Gillian Nicola's upcoming album, which is set drop on May 3.
"It's a song about being OK taking time out and spending time with yourself when you need it," she says.
It's also an earworm that will stick with you all day.
