Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching is primarily the work of singer/songwriter Michael Falk, former frontman of iM favourites Les Jupes. Just today they released a brand new video for their song Oh General.
Michael had this to say about the writing process: “I wrote this song one early morning at my mom’s place in Pinawa, with my then-1-year-old sitting on my lap. At its core are observations of complacency and divisiveness. When I listen to it today I also hear the challenge to contemplate who and what is most important in our lives, and following that path requires tough choices that sometimes have to be taken alone. Perhaps quarantine makes these decisions of the heart a little simpler.”
Going forward, the band plans to release 10 songs every week with a video accompanying each song. We’re not sure about you but we can’t wait to hear more from Touching; it’s been way too long.
