On this 8 Tracks list, we’ve got some familiar names, some new tunes, and an overall killer collection of music to kick off your work week!
Hotel Mira – “Better On Your Own”
We’re kicking off this collection one of our favorites, Hotel Mira. They’re back with the next tune from their upcoming album (Perfectionism, out Feb 14th), and this one is a poppy hit, with Charlie Kerr’s usual clever and catchy lyrics. Give it a spin!
Kristian Harting – “Falling”
Hailing from Denmark, Kristan Harting is a neo-folk / psych-pop artist, creating songs met with critical acclaim. His new album, The Fumes, is out January 20th, featuring this song – “Falling”.
Hearing Trees – “Bones”
Winnipeg band Hearing Tress has an indie rock sound with poetic, easy-listening sensibilities. This is their latest track, “Bones” – perfect for fans of The National, The Weakerthans, & Matthew Good.
Scott Hardware – “Joy”
Toronto musician Scott Hardware will be releasing his latest album, Engel, this April. In the meantime, he’s just dropped a new single – “Joy” is a rhythmic pop tune, written as a reminder to seek out joy. Check it out!
Shade – “Brain Suck”
Hamilton’s Shade is a cool cross-section of many different genres – Brit rock, psych, and grunge, among others. Their new single “Brain Suck” is no exception. It’s the perfect blend of those influences, creating a sound all their own.
The Sweet Kill – “Explode”
The Sweet Kill is back on FTS, this time with a new tune called “Explode”! The latest track from the recent Neon Black album has a great 80s vibe, exploring “the bitter sweetness of the love game”.
Kiss And Prove It – “Addicted To You”
More Canadian talent on this collection, this time from Calgary’s Kiss And Prove It. This song, “Addicted to You” is unsurprisingly about addiction, and being forced to make a decision to take one more hit or be free. This is a rock tune, through and through.
Law Of All – “Stuck”
It only took a few seconds for this song to grab me. It has some elements of older Queens of the Stone Age, and it’s gritty and catchy at the same time. I’m excited to hear the rest of their tracks. Have a listen, and let us know what you think!
