Introducing Canadian’s ‘The Provincial Archive‘: If you’re an Elliot Smith, Simian Ghost, REM, Beck, The National or Grizzly Bear fan, there’s a good chance this will be your bag.
The band have set off on a tour of Europe with a string of UK dates (see below) starting with London on the 21st of May. The tour promotes their Hide Like a Secret EP which is out on the 10th of June and a full length album is expected to follow within the year.
The first song on the EP to be revealed is an Elliott Smith cover of ‘Son of Sam’
, which is currently a free download.
A live in-studio video of the track can be viewed below-
“We’re huge Elliott Smith fans, and it was amazing to work through something that we love in detail,” explains frontman Craig Schram. The four track EP draws on the bands indie-folk and art-pop influences, and explores the use of detuned synthesizers and thick vocal harmonies.
