3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out brand new music from Kylo, The Elwins and Alice Glass
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:
Kylo: Your Eyes
Your Eyes is a brand new track from Kylo.
It's delicate, and floats along in your headphones effortlessly — but that bass line creates a great tension bubbling underneath the surface.
When this tune is done, it immediately warrants another listen.
The Elwins: Watercolour
I feel like I'm featuring The Elwins a lot lately — but it's hard not to when they just keep killing it with inventive, fun videos.
And hey, it worked for OK Go, so why not these guys?
It helps that this tune is catchy as hell, too.
Alice Glass: Forgiveness
Glass was once in Crystal Castles, but left the group after alleging co-founder Ethan Kath abused her.
Now out on her own, she just released a new video for this track.
It has a definite early 90s club vibe.
Her voice is ethereal and delicate throughout, and it really carries this tune.
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.
