Another Montreal-based band to be included in this week’s SubmitHub gems.
Meet indie folk band, The Franklin Electric, who have shared their video for ‘Burning Flame’, a cinematic showpiece filmed in Toronto.
“This was a spontaneous last minute addition to the record about the fire that feeds us and brings us to do all the things we do, or ignore the things we don’t do but wish we had. A voice inside most of us that can easily be ignored but the burn is a constant reminder. This video was all about the casting! I walked in the day of the shoot and met George, who plays the main role in this music video. He is the most endearing, honest, pure, yet driven 17 year old kid I have ever met. From that moment I was sold on the director’s story & concept. I invite you to meet George for yourself.”
It’s taken from their sophomore album, ‘Blue Ceilings’.
The Erised are a five-piece from Ukraine, comprised of drum & bass producers Detail and Hidden Element, and dancer-turned-singer/songwriter, Sonya.
Although their music stems from drum & bass, this group create a immersive collective of jazz, rock and pop.
You could be tricked into thinking the single ‘Liar’ is an indietronica track with Sonya’s opulent vocals, but every now and then snippets of dark and vibrant instrumentals drum & bass hit our ears, building to a great rocky crescendo at the end. Lovely.
They are releasing their debut album with Hospital Records‘ derivative Med School. Pre-order the album, ‘Room 414’, on iTunes, and you’ll get ‘Liar’ as an instant grat.
