🎧 Eamon McGrath – “April”

We last told you about Toronto by way of Edmonton singer-songwriter Eamon McGrath back in early February when he released his stellar song America with Ryder Havdale. Well, he’s back with another track this month. Now, it’s time for you to take a listen.

April,” is about the melancholic transformation of winter to spring. It is a time of great longing, of great relief, and of great optimism – yet there’s always a paradoxical tendency to look back on what is usually a difficult time and wish that you could’ve made more of it.”

Check it out in the embed below and hit up his socials for more going forward. It’s likely this is not the last time we’ll hear from him in 2021.

🎧 Delta Days – “R.N.R.”

Today, Hamilton indie-rockers Delta Days dropped a stellar new song on the masses. It’s a real infectious nimber that hits in all the right places. We couldn’t wait to tell you about it here at The iM … now’s your chance to check it out.

“The song is a tongue-and-cheek number that plays on the idea that Rock n’ Roll is dead.  The chorus exemplifies this sentiment by declaring “I hate Rock n’ Roll” — a conversation the band overheard too many times while standing at the bar waiting to play their set.”

Listen to R.N.R. in the embed, and be sure to hit up their socials for more. Hopefully, for us, more music is on the way.
