Let’s jump into this Smarch weekend with a handful of great tunes to get in the proper Friday mood. Here are eight new tracks worth a listen and repeat!
Shred Kelly – “Dead Leaves”
Kicking off the list with a new track from five piece alternative folk rock band, Shred Kelly. “Dead Leaves” is an energy-packed tune with great harmonies and a mix of acoustic and electric instruments.
PINEO x LOEB & Glass Tiger – “This Is Your Life”
Here’s a new collaboration between Glass Tiger and Pineo x Loeb – plus, the added bonus of backup vocals from FTS favourite Matt Mays!
Frank Moyo – “Friend of Mine”
Frank Moyo is a Toronto-based musician with smooth vocals and a folk/pop sound, which are well-featured in this new single, “Friend of Mine”.
LPX – “New Mood”
At first listen, this song reminded me of a poppier version of The Kills (who are one of my favourite bands). LPX is the solo project of Lizzy Plapinger, co-founder of Neon Gold Records, and lead singer of MS MR. Check out the new single!
James Clark Hangover – “It’s Alright Now”

Small Town Artillery – “Day As An Arrow”
Vancouver indie rock band Small Town Artillery recently released their latest single, “Day As An Arrow”, dedicated to the Wet’suwet’en people of northern BC. Along with a powerful message, it’s an insanely likable song. We’re looking forward to hearing their brand new EP, out today.
Taylor Bradshaw – Our First Date
Here’s a great alt rock single from Taylor Bradshaw’s new album, Twine. It’s about “the flashbulb explosion in that first moment – the realization that you hardly know a person but you will fall in love”. Check it out!
