It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto indie-rockers Cursed Arrows but the wait is over with a brand new single, Rebuild As One. We’ve had this thing on heavy rotation this afternoon and it shows no signs of letting up. It’s a real infectious number that hits in all the right places.
“Ryan and I recorded this in our living room this summer. He played guitar, I played drums. We both played bass! Mixed + mastered by us. It’s an anthemic call to arms: destroy that which oppresses us and ruins our humanity. Burn it down. Then build a partnership society, together. None are free until all are equal.“

“You can’t miss it. First thing you see in Yukon, Oklahoma is the water tower that proudly reads “YUKON: HOME OF GARTH BROOKS.” Danny grew up in this smallish town, cruising Garth Brooks Boulevard, aka, Main Street, USA. This song’s about living in the shadow of greatness, the struggle for some to transcend a small-town mindset, and the sensation of cruising the main drag and feeling mixed emotions of nostalgia, joy, and ennui. Here’s “Garth,” your sweetly melancholy homecoming end of summer jam.”

Just today, Toronto noise-makers METZ have shared another song (and video) from their upcoming long-player, Atlas Vending. The dystopian themed video was shot in Queenstown, on the South Island of New Zealand and directed by Dylan Pharazyn.
“I started thinking of the feeling of war or samurai films, beautiful but dark and violent… but then I had this idea to work up a more unique world… I started to think of a more futuristic setting — more unusual and dream-like with the story set on a distant planet where there is future technology and some kind of alien magic… like a futuristic fable. I loved the idea of the hero Ayeth on this nomadic walk through an epic landscape… I loved the strength in her and the pairing of her with a wounded companion, something really human and vulnerable… I wanted that emotive warmth countering the cold military images.”
