💿 Small Sins – “Volume II”

We’re not going to lie … we’ve been waiting for this one. Small Sins new album is out. After sharing the first and only single Andre, we finally have an 8-song record worthy of the 10-year wait. Now, it’s time for you to check this beauty out.

Listen to Volume II in the embed below, and be sure to hit up our favourite album cuts, 510s, Together Again and Stuck With Each Other. Not sure about you, but let’s hope we don’t have to wait that long for new music ever again.

📹 Delta Will – “Any Body”

Delta Will is the alias of Toronto singer-songwriter Charles Tilden. Back in October, he dropped the first single, Kindling, off his upcoming album Multitudes III. We were impressed then, but we’re even more excited about his new track, Any Body.

“The song & its video explore ritual, cycles, and the idea that even though we all exist inside of a body, our lives are much more expansive and interconnected than the limits of those bodies would have us believe.”

Watch the video in the embed, and trust us when we say, you’re in for a visual experience like no other. The new album Multitudes III will be out later this year on Knapsack Records. Stay tuned.

📹 PREMIERE: Neon Bloom – “Tangerine”

Toronto 4-piece Neon Bloom has been on our radar for a while now, and what better way to celebrate their latest video with a premiere here at The iM. If you’re not familiar with the music, your day is about to get a whole lot better.

Back in early November, the indie-pop outfit dropped the infectious Still Life EP. The 4-song effort really packs a punch, and Tangerine is the icing on the cake. The song conjures up memories of 90s trip-hop acts like Morcheeba and Zero 7.

In the video clip below, you’ll find scenes of everyday life in the Cuban capital of Havana, including its incredible architecture and classic cars of the 40s and 50s. It was filmed by band member and videographer Fred Yurichuk early last year, before the Covid-19 outbreak. More about the song and video:

“Unlike other songs on the EP, ‘Tangerine’ offers an escape from the grim realities of late, focusing instead on sensual experience and lost love. In keeping with the romantic theme of the song, the music video is a montage of scenes depicting the everyday lives of people living in the photogenic city of Havana. Full of lovely pastels and stunning architecture, with splashes of colour punctuating the scenery, Yurichuk’s video allows the viewer to visually experience Havana from afar. At a time when we are all confined to our immediate “bubbles”, this video offers a way to vicariously experience another city and way of life.”

Check out the video in the embed, and look out for this bunch going forward. It’s safe to say Neon Bloom is here to stay.

📹 Mirabelle – “Phénomène”

We’re not going to lie … we’re pretty smitten with Montreal pop-songstress Mirabelle. Back in May of last year, the singer-songwriter and musician dropped a stellar record in the form of Late Bloomer. Today, she’s back with a new video for album track Phénomène, and we can’t get enough of this thing here at The iM. Now, it’s time to share it with you.

Check out the clip in the embed below, and be sure to hit up her socials. And, while we’ve got your attention, head over to Simone Records to grab a copy of the album. Not sure about you, but we can’t wait to hear more new music.
