TOURIST COMPANY SHARE NEW SINGLE 'TIL WE DISAPPEAR

THIRD RELEASE FROM UPCOMING SOPHOMORE ALBUM
SET TO DROP IN 2020

LISTEN AND WATCH ‘TIL WE DISAPPEAR

Toronto, ON – October 11, 2019 – Tourist Company have been sharing tastes of their upcoming new sophomore album throughout the year, and today they release their latest offering – ‘Til We Disappear. Inspired by a deeply personal life event, the track is a heartfelt expression of unwavering love. Have a listen here.

“This was the last song written for this record and it’s a little bit of an aside from the rest of the album,” reflects Tourist Company singer-songwriter, Taylor Swindells. “I wasn’t intending on writing any more songs for this project but life had other plans. I’d just come home from tour when my partner sat me down and told me she wasn’t pregnant – which was kind of a strange way to start a conversation. I remember my heart leaping into my throat not really being certain what was going to happen next. She told me that her doctor didn’t know what was wrong with her – she was eight weeks late and had taken two pregnancy tests herself, but the doctor’s test had come back negative. She was categorically not pregnant. This left two options that were both terrifying: either she could never have kids, or she had uterine cancer and we had no way of knowing if or how much it had spread. I wrote this song pretty shortly after that conversation, trying not to freak out but knowing that I loved her more than anything and that was never going to change.  
 
Moments like that bring a lot of clarity to what actually matters. Without those terrifying events, it’s hard to know how deep anything in life really is. All I wanted right then and there was for her to know that I loved her no matter what and that was never going to change. Two weeks later after another doctor’s test we found out that she was actually just pregnant the whole time, which was the BIGGEST relief. We still don’t know what medically happened but we’re very happy to be parents now.  
 
Even though this song wasn’t originally set within the world of the new album, it seemed like a fitting way to end a record about processing bad news. I felt all the stages of this album in those two weeks when our world was turned upside down, but the truth was, all that mattered was ‘I will love you ‘til we disappear’.”

Tourist Company released their debut album, Apollo, to critical acclaim in 2016 and toured the record relentlessly across their home country and internationally. The duo – comprised of singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Taylor Swindells, and drummer, Brenon Perry – have steadily built a musical reputation that is impressing critics and winning fans worldwide. With a sound that seamlessly blends the electronic and the organic, they have carved out a sound that is defiantly all their own; with orchestral elements that swell into a sea of synths, propelled along by rhythms that combine experimental with progressive. The band is set to release their sophomore record in the new year.

UPCOMING TOUR DATES:
October 31 – Vancouver, BC – Biltmore Cabaret (with Rich Aucoin)
November 1 – Nanaimo, BC – The Queen’s (with Rich Aucoin)
November 2 – Victoria, BC – Lucky Bar (with Rich Aucoin)

G&D (GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW AND DUDLEY PERKINS AKA DECLAIME) TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM BLACK LOVE & WAR ON AUGUST 9 VIA SOMEOTHASHIP CONNECT / EONE

G&D (GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW
AND DUDLEY PERKINS AKA DECLAIME) TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM BLACK LOVE & WAR ON AUGUST 9 VIA SOMEOTHASHIP CONNECT / EONE

LISTEN TO FIRST SINGLE WHERE I’M FROM

Toronto, ON – June 5, 2019 – Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins aka Declaime, collectively known as G&D, present their new album, Black Love & War, which will be released August 9, 2019. Both life and musical partners, G&D have been together for over 13 years raising three children together.

The album celebrates black love and the unity of the black family, but the album also delves into many of the socio-economic and racial issues that still have them at ‘war.’  The album features production from Oh No and Mike & Keys (Nipsey Hussle), and vocal contributions from Aloe Blacc, Latoiya Williams, Sean Biggs and Ms. Dezy. Pre-order Black Love & Warout August 9 on SomeOthaShip Connect / eOne Music, here.  

About G&D’s Black Love & War – by Marcus J. Moore:
Blackness has been under attack ever since the first Africans were brought to the United States and forced into slavery. In that time, our culture has been pillaged, packaged and sold to major corporations for profit. We’re told that we’re simply not good enough to be equal, or to be seen at all. We’re forced from our homes by white people who think our neighbourhoods are cool.

Then there’s the police: They’ve been spraying us with fire hoses and shooting us dead since God knows when. So, the brutality you see today shouldn’t surprise you; it’s only been magnified by the prevalence of smartphones and the 24-hour news cycle.

With this in mind, creative partners, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins have returned with a new album, Black Love & War, their third release under the moniker, G&D. 

Long before the term “black excellence” was en vogue, Georgia and Dudley personified it, setting a strong example for others to follow. Not only do they create music together, they adore each other, and that devotion shines through the art, on songs like Eyeluvu (from Dudley’s 2009 album, Holy Smokes) and These Are The Things I Really Like About You (from Georgia’s beloved 2018 album, Overload).

But now, the world needs healing, so the duo is back to spread love and solace to those crumbling under the weight of systemic oppression. Yet, this isn’t a warm hug or passive pep talk; Muldrow and Perkins want you to fight hard—for yourself, for your brothers and sisters, for your peace of mind. Only Georgia and Dudley could turn a song like 187—a brief interlude near album’s end—into a festive nursery rhyme about killing your oppressors, or use another sketch like Slave Revolt Soundtrack to portray the death of a slave master on a plantation. Black Love & War is a wake-up call for black people to rise and revolt, to battle a system meant to kill and imprison us.

We always have a militant feel,” says Georgia, “but we wanted people to be able to join in the music and sing along with it. It’s music that makes people come together. It’s a very cultural record.”

Black Love & War won’t surprise those who’ve followed Georgia and Dudley to this point; the Cali-bred, Nevada-based couple have always challenged listeners to stand tall in the face of tyranny. The devil is working, and as scores of black people die at the hands of racist white law enforcement and MAGA followers emboldened by the U.S. president, now’s the time to prepare for revolution. “We thought, ‘Let’s hit ‘em harder, and not give a fuck about the industry,’” Dudley says about the premise for Black Love & War.

“Truth fucks with people. This ain’t just music; it’s a message and a tool to raise up the spirit of the black race.” The duo does that by compiling a fluid set of upbeat tracks, steeped heavily in their now-trademarked mix of “fOnk,” which blends ‘70s funk and West Coast G-funk into a rich, psychedelic sound. As a result, Black  Love & War feels like a classic Parliament-Funkadelic record, except the themes are tied to modern-day despair. On Peace Peace, for instance, Dudley dissects America’s history of racism and violence from the perspective of a concerned father: “Welcome to the world, son, now run, police got a gun … they will throw sticks and stones ‘till they break ya bloody bones/what a wonderful way we all live.”

He continues that theme on The Battle, with a backing track that matches his urgent tone: “Whole world is on the attack, whole lotta whites hate blacks/And most for no damn reason, this is the season to shoot another dead/Last night, they shot a baby black boy in the head.”

If much of the album is carried by the aspect of War, the back end leans into the concept of Black Love—especially on songs, Again, P.A.L. (Post Apocalyptic Love), and Fruitful. In these moments, Georgia and Dudley move toward a calmer, more subdued set of sun-kissed R&B and Quiet Storm soul, evoking classics like Rose Royce’s Wishing On a Star and Bootsy Collins’ I’d Rather Be With You. But while they take minor cues from these luminaries, this is love music the only way Georgia and Dudley can do it—straight from their heart to yours, from their own place somewhere amongst the stars. 

I want folks to feel pumped listening to Black Love & War,” Georgia says. “I want it to help them on their journey to fearlessness. I hope these songs help them release that magic, or makes their day more understandable.” Adds Dudley, “this is the music that raises the vibration. We’re pushing each other for the betterment of the planet. We’ve gotta heal our people right now.”

PATRIK RELEASES COMMON (FEAT. BREANA MARIN)

PREMIERES VIA CBC Q AND EXCLAIM! TODAY

DREAMLIFE-PRODUCED SINGLE ANNOUNCES FORTHCOMING SPADINA EP TO BE RELEASED SEPTEMBER 21

Toronto, ON – August 10, 2018 – Toronto x Montreal rapper, Patrik, shares his stunning new song, Common, today. It serves as the lead single for his forthcoming Spadina EP, set for release on September 21. The song aired via CBC q this morning and premiered online at Exclaim! Check out the single here.  

"It’s about the grind and the sacrifices,” Patrik says of the inspiration for Common. “We all have to give up a lot to get what we want or get to where we want, doesn’t mean we have to sell our soul for it."

Common was produced by DreamLife, who is known for his work with Kevin Gates, Wale, YBN Cordae, Snoop Dogg, Kodak Black, Bun B, Gunplay and Smoke DZA. It features hooks from Breana Marin, a rising R&B/Pop/EDM singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. She has worked with Grammy award winning producers Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins and RedOne, and has written for Keyshia Cole, Mila J, Letoya Luckett and Fifth Harmony. A graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood, her music was featured in the movie trailer for When The Bough Breaks. 

Patrik’s previous singles, LONE and STAYLONE marked bold samples of the album’s sound. He has been delivering live performances of the songs in and around Toronto and Montreal, with shows at Canadian Music Week, Uncrwnd, Lost Craft’s Untapped series and MTL Bliss.  

In May, Patrik released Entitled (prod. CMPLX, J Cash and $on), alongside incredible visuals you can watch here. Premiering via Complex Canada, the video was filmed at LivArt gallery in Montreal following Patrik’s visit to the vernissage of visual artist, Pierre-Marie Cespedes. He was immediately inspired by the space and creative energy that was permeating the walls of the Montreal art hub. The video was directed by Dede Soueidan, and produced by Arash Maleki of Montreal-based Pigeon House Productions x Beso TV.

Keep it locked for more music from Patrik ahead of Spadina’s release this fall!

About Patrik:

Patrik is a clever lyricist who uses metaphors to relate to the heart of the listener. A banner of truth, Patrik speaks his mind. Using music, making his message, one for the masses.

While studying sociology at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, Quebec, he was a dedicated member of the school’s basketball team and Enactus chapter, an entrepreneurship program that challenges students professionally to create their own ventures and projects. The title of his forthcoming EP, Spadina, is a reference to Toronto’s Chinatown neighbourhood, where Patrik resides.

A lover of fashion with a keen sense for personal style, Patrik’s x10 brand has become a well-known brand, worn throughout the Toronto and Montreal area. Patrik is sponsored by, G-Star Raw's Toronto Flagship Store. They curated a private event at their store in downtown Toronto, where Patrik showcased his talent to an audience of over 100 fans in the space.
