In November of last year, Montreal experimental-electronic outfit Riches released Hang In Pieces; their first new music since the unforgettable Fantasy Chapel LP. Now, the duo of Catherine McCandless (Young Galaxy) and choreographer Wynn Holmes are back with another song, and we couldn’t wait to share it with you.
“Light Of Dawn” uses the metaphor of a maypole dance to bring sunlight and celebration into the repetitive and insular routines of our pandemic lives. A child-like, desirous, and imaginative voice sings above pastoral folk, harmonizing with Riches darkness. This song serenades the wash of the creative headspace over the lost and meaningless one.”
Check out the beautifully constructed Light Of Dawn (featuring production from Dan Lissvik) in the embed below, and be sure to hit up their socials. Something tells us we’ll hear more from these two this year.
