🎧 PREMIERE: New River Beach – ‘Mystery Tape’

Back in mid-May, we premiered the debut song by Toronto indie-electronic outfit New River Beach called The Right Place. Well, the duo is back with another track, and we couldn’t be happier to be sharing it with you on this Friday morning.

Compared to its predecessor, Mystery Tape is an upbeat number but still maintains that sound we’ve come to appreciate over the last few months; rolling synths and hazy vocals suck you in and before you know it, you’re lost in a trance. It’s an incredibly infectious number that you won’t soon forget.

“We wrote and recorded “Mystery Tape” over the course of a weekend when the world seemed to be imploding. We recorded our vocals in our basement washroom and played our synths into headphones, making our nightly music sessions incognito to our sleeping children. “Mystery Tape” was written to give listeners 3 minutes to put their heads down and dance.”

Now that we have your attention, check out Mystery Tape in the embed below and be sure to hit up their socials for more going forward. Trust us when we say, this is a band you don’t want to sleep on.

🎧 PREMIERE: New River Beach – ‘The Right Place’

From Green Go to Paradise Animals and newly discovered Favours, Toronto musician Mark Andrade has always been connected to The Indie Machine in one way or another. So, it only seems fitting that we get to introduce you to his latest project with his wife Marney Isaac, New River Beach.

In the spirit of Caribou’s ‘Can’t Do Without You’, The Right Place is a song that evokes much emotion; rolling synths and hazy vocals creating a sonic landscape you won’t soon forget. With its pure simplicity, from beginning to end, The Right Place leaves us yearning for more.

Isaac plays almost all of the instruments on their debut track. After laying down all the parts to the song, Andrade used his production skills and sampling techniques to help shape the pieces into a cohesive whole.

“We recorded “The Right Place” in our home studio in the evenings after our kids went to sleep. New River Beach is a place near Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada – Marney’s home town. We’ve been reflecting on the concept of well-being and its connection to place. From playing a warm Juno, to a washed-out trumpet and bass guitar, the act of playing together, especially during these isolated and uncertain times, became a place of its own.”

Rumour has it the duo are hard at work on their follow-up single, so stay tuned for more on their socials. Until then, bask in the glory that is The Right Place… headphones are highly recommended.
