Montreal’s provocatively-entitled Your ex and I captures the sounds of the original British invasion and later post-punk artists in their eagerly-awaited EP to be released early in 2023.
“If You’d Only” explores darker themes of lust, fantasy and expectation while never losing sight of their signature sound.
The creative chemistry between the five musically experienced members shines, acknowledging influences such as The Beatles, The Police, The Pixies, and Arctic Monkeys. The result is a tasty mix of melody and muscle that is dark yet danceable, polished yet never too slick. The combination of ‘80s synth lines, fat bass hooks, driving indie rock guitars, and the skillful use of both vintage analog and modern instruments and recording gear is an irresistible one.
