July Talk - 'Strange Habit'
Toronto’s beloved band on the rise is back and they’re showing their softer side. July Talk’s newest track is a completely different sound heard in slower ballads even from their debut album. The rock element is stripped and we see the vocalists focus on pairing piano with the unique voices of the duo.
Elephant Stone - Manipulator
With a new album, Ship of Fools, set to release digitally in September, Elephant Stone are back with a sound that challenges their previous albums. The second single, Manipulator is a step towards a more pop-like sound, though doesn’t lack skill when it comes to song writing.

An infectious song with an upbeat groove. The Darcy’s latest single is an array of everything we can’t get enough of from this Toronto band.
