The new song (and music video) from Winnipeg indie-rockers Touching might very well be our favourite in a series of videos leading up to the release of their latest album, Isolation Blues. It features some incredible synth-lines and heartfelt lyrics that had us hitting the repeat button over and over.
“Born Lucky is a song about entitlement and chasing your dreams and the privilege of having the solid childhood, supportive parents and financial security that make chasing your dreams even possible.”
Check out Born Lucky in the embed below and remember the band is donating 50% of sales proceeds to Unison Benevolent Fund. Show some support if you can, to a very worthy cause.
Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching are back with another video in their Isolation Blues series today. The song will be included on the new album which is due for release on June 26th via Head In The Sand Records.
“All My Worries is a song about the winds of change and what they require. They ask for honesty of intention from us. They ask us to leave situations that aren’t good for us, to follow love to places that bring out the best in us. They ask us to reflect on our lives and our decisions and our future. But also to understand that actions have consequences and for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction. Plan/don’t plan accordingly.”
Check out All My Worries in the embed below and make sure you hit up their socials for more going forward. The band is donating 50% of album proceeds to the Unison Benevolent Fund to assist their efforts to support musicians during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching are back with another video in their series of 10 leading up to the June 26th release of Isolation Blues.
“Better Off Alone is a song about realizing that you need to back away from the world you’ve built for yourself, that it might not be a good place for you after all, and to take all the time you need to get yourself sorted out.”
Check out the video in the embed and be sure to follow the band at the links below. There’s more where that came from, so stay tuned people.
As promised, Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching have dropped the third video in their Isolation Blues series leading up to the June 26th release of their new album. Michael Falk, the man behind the music, had this to say about the song:
“Alasdair & I had been working on the songs in the studio, this lyric “let me be lonely with you” emerged. It’s a contradiction that seems to sum up that odd feeling of living with someone but also sometimes feeling so alone. All gulfs of isolation are passable with time and care.”
Check out Let Me Be Lonely With You in the embed below and if you haven’t seen last weeks video, The Darkness, hit up the ‘watch’ link below. Fifty percent of all Isolation Blues proceeds on Bandcamp and Apple Music are being donated to Unison Benevolent Fund to support their efforts to assist musicians during this difficult time. A worthy cause to say the least.
Winnipeg indie-rock outfit Touching is primarily the work of singer/songwriter Michael Falk, former frontman of iM favourites Les Jupes. Just today they released a brand new video for their song Oh General.
Michael had this to say about the writing process: “I wrote this song one early morning at my mom’s place in Pinawa, with my then-1-year-old sitting on my lap. At its core are observations of complacency and divisiveness. When I listen to it today I also hear the challenge to contemplate who and what is most important in our lives, and following that path requires tough choices that sometimes have to be taken alone. Perhaps quarantine makes these decisions of the heart a little simpler.”
Going forward, the band plans to release 10 songs every week with a video accompanying each song. We’re not sure about you but we can’t wait to hear more from Touching; it’s been way too long.
