Some background on the video if you’re interested. We shot this video at my old high school and it cost 0 euros to make, it was made solely as a result of the kindness of being lent materials and spaces to use. Thanks Chris for letting me use your computer to edit with! Except for the fact that we bought 80 euros worth of carpet to make our own green screen which ended up working quite poorly, there’s a video of that if you swipe (it’s the last video). We also bought a styrofoam hand which we didn’t use, but who knows, might be useful for an upcoming video. Blood sweat and tears were poured into this video, quite literally, so it’s a good feeling having it out in the world. If you swipe you will discover that I forgot to bring a pick with me when we shot the video, so I lost a decent amount of skin. Thank you for watching it and if you haven’t yet, it’s up on YouTube on our channel.

Camille Christel / Shares New Single 'Goldsmith Street'

‘Goldsmith Street’ is the latest example of Camille Christel’s unique and intricate approach to songwriting.

Heavy with regret and self-questioning, ‘Goldsmith Street’ opens on a lone heartbeat before the gentle addition of piano, cello and Camille’s warm, tender vocals take centre stage. The track’s brave, unconventional structure feels like jigsaw pieces gradually slotting into place, and shares touchstones with everyone from Mazzy Star to Cat Power.

Common Holly / New single 'Measured'. Album Out 1st November.

Common Holly / New single 'Measured'. Album Out 1st November.

Having just finished up a hugely successful tour of North America with Pinegrove and ahead of her brilliant new album, 'When I say to you Black Lightning', Common Holly shares new track ‘Measured’. “Oh, I think we've been measured out for pain since birth,” she sings of her new-found cynicism of romantic relationships. The track - both sparse and confrontational – is extremely accomplished, showing an artist still on the rise and whose talons are razor sharp.

Common Holly / New Single 'Joshua Snakes' and Album Out 18th Oct

Common Holly is Montreal-based Brigitte Naggar and ahead of her brilliant new album, 'When I say to you Black Lightning', comes new track ‘Joshua Snakes’. A great primer for the NEW album, ‘Joshua Snakes’ works through the themes of restlessness, jealousy, even mild obsession, to paint a picture of the damsel in distress tied to the tracks, but this time without the need to be rescued.

Summer blues got you down? Feeling unjustifiably low despite the pleasant weather? Perhaps a new pet is the answer. This kind and gentle tube person, full of bittersweet emotion (just like you!) is looking for a home, and they can be yours for the low low price of pre-saving my album (for free) at the link in bio (—it is a competition). What does this have to do with the music, you might ask? well, pre-save the album and you may very well find out.

Common Holly / Announces New Album & Lead Single 'Central Booking'

Common Holly / Announces New Album & Lead Single 'Central Booking'

Montreal-based Common Holly (Brigitte Naggar) appeared a few years back with the surprisingly accomplished debut album, 'Playing House'. Holding fast to that record's honesty, her impending follow-up 'When I Say to you Black Lightning' is a look outward, a submergence into the dark and dissonant with consolation found in harmony and dry humour. Like a ticking internal monologue, the nine labyrinthian yet catchy tracks observe the complexities of mental health, the precarity of life, and the challenges of finding strength in the face of grave misunderstanding.

Gia Margaret / Shares Video for 'Birthday' & New 'There's Always Glimmer' Release

From a low-key Summer release in the US to ending 2018 across multiple international critics’ Best Of lists (including Gorilla vs. Bear and The Line of Best Fit), Gia Margaret’s debut album, 'There’s Always Glimmer', is a hugely rewarding and deeply affecting slow-burner. An accomplished record that seemingly appeared out of nowhere, catching people’s attention with the fragile, intimate beauty of Gia’s compositions carrying her poignant lyrics. With word of mouth growing and multiple pressings of the record having sold out since, it’s great news then that it is finally getting the full release outside of North America that it richly deserves.
