New sounds from Grouplove, Feist, Adrienne Nye, Tyler Boone, Stuck on Planet Earth

Grouplove: Hello

The Los Angeles group's sixth album, I Want it All Right Now, is due in July. This single, says vocalist and keyboardist Hannah Hooper, was recorded on the last day in the studio. "We had this demo Ben (Homola, drummer) and I had been working on that wasn’t quite finished and we decided to break it out and mess around with it. ...It feels so lighthearted, like a sing-along, but if you listen it’s all about feeling lost and alone and wanting so badly for people to look up and connect.”

Feist: Borrow Trouble

Here's the fourth single released ahead of the upcoming LP Multitudes. NME calls it "enchanting" and "possibly the most introspective track" released so far. Feist says it "began as a contemplative acoustic morality tale and shape shifted itself into the sound of trouble itself. It’s a mess that holds its own logic.”

Adrienne Nye: I Need the Light

This emerging artist has released just a few singles so far, and this is the first to reach our ears. A Montreal native now based in Vancouver, she has degrees in biology as well as a background in stage and film performance, and released two EPs in 2017-2018 as part of a duo called Fallow State. Her bio says she draws inspiration from artists such as Bjork, Lights, Imogen Heap, Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek. She recently launched her own label, Yaletown Records, which will soon release her debut solo EP, These Winter Skies.

Tyler Boone: Running Sideways

This indie singer-songwriter and alt-rocker has been releasing music since 2012 and has been part of our mix since 2016. The South Carolina native, who has worked with musicians and producers in Nashville and Los Angeles, self-produced this track in California for release on his own Artist Formula label. He says that while his "lane" has been blues-rock and Americana, he wanted to try for a more contemporary, current sound on this new single.

Stuck On Planet Earth: Crack In The Glass

This three-piece alt-rock band from Toronto has one LP to its credit - 2020's Beautiful Nowhere - and returned with a couple of singles last year. The press release for this latest track says it "continues the band’s emphasis on the reinvention of their artistry." The trio has more in store for release this year: "We just got back from Nashville where we got to work with some incredible people. This time around, we have not been hesitant to be our most authentic selves and we believe we are writing the most honest music we have ever created.”
