We recently came across Newcastle singer/songwriter Callum Pitt and we’re certainly glad we did. His latest single is a rather infectious number that blends elements of folk, pop and alternative to create an incredibly cohesive sound.
The song “is directed at the UK government and right-wing press who have incited hatred and division in the public through their rhetoric over the past few years in particular.”

If you’re not familiar with Tallinn-based alt-country outfit Holy Motors, you definitely should be. The 4-piece recently dropped the lead single from their upcoming album, Horse, due for release October 16th via Wharf Cat Records and we want you to know about it.

A little late to the party here but we just came across the new video from Montreal singer/songwriter Helena Deland and we can’t seem to take this thing off repeat. It’s a really hypnotic number that hits in all the right places.

It’s that time again where we share our favourite songs of the month with you. It’s been an incredible few weeks for new finds and some older ones too. You’ll hear music from the likes of Will Butler, Freak Heat Waves, Bullion and Oceanator.
That being said, check out the playlist in the embed below … there’s a little something for everyone. Listen loud and enjoy it.
Whatever Marlon Chaplin is doing these days, he seems to be doing it right. Just recently he released another music video on the world and we can’t get enough of his new electronic, synth-driven sound. Now, it’s time to share the latest with you.
Check out the clip for Empty Shells in the embed below and don’t forget to hit up his socials to show your support. The song will be included on his new album, Synestalgia, due for release sometime this summer.
Heaps hail from not far outside the city of Toronto… Kawartha Lakes to be exact. Just today, they unleashed a brand new video on the masses and we can’t get enough here at The iM. Now, it’s your turn to see and hear what we’re talking about.
Check out You Were There in the embed below and stay tuned for their new album dropping August 28th. If this song is any indication, it’s going to be a good one.
To say that we’re excited about the new record from Toronto psych-rockers B-17, would be a serious understatement. It seems like forever since we’ve been graced with their infectious sound but the wait is over with a brand new EP, Back In The Barn.
Check it out in the embed below and be sure to hit up the band socials for more going forward. Glad to have these boys back on our radar.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto by way of Vancouver indie-electronic outfit Speaker Face. Good news for us… the wait is over. The 3-piece is back with a groovy new track and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.
“Phosphorescence is a thank you letter to those who were here long before us, specifically the Coast Salish, and the early 1900s Japanese settlers, who were interned during WWII.”

Back in the early days of The iM, you would often find the music of Montreal indie-rockers Think About Life playing somewhere… whether it was in the car, at home or during our online radio broadcasts.
Many bands defined the sound of The iM when we first started back in 2009 and these guys were definitely one of them. Their music never gets old and in our eyes, will forever be an important part of the Canadian musical landscape.
Check out our favourite album cut Sweet Sixteen, from their second album Family, in the embed below. You can also follow them over on their socials to show your support. The guys came out of hiding over the last couple of years to play a few shows… maybe we’ll hear from them again?
Here’s another throwback from The iM vault for your Thursday afternoon listening pleasure. This mixtape was curated sometime in 2009 and features a whole bunch of indie-rock heavyweights, including Metric, M83, The Kills and Stars. Enjoy!
