The Franklin Electric – Burning Flame

The Franklin Electric

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’.

Sounds like: The Lumineers, Vance Joy, Ben Howard

Ava Raiin – Tree

Ava Raiin

Brooklyn-based singer Ava Raiin may have worked closely with the likes of Blood Orange, Carly Rae Jepsen and Solange, but what we are really interested in is her solo material.

‘Tree’, taken from Ava’s self titled album, has a sentimental R&B sound throughout, with modern vocal libs – a theme that runs throughout the album, and the main reason why she grabbed our attention.

Her self-titled album is out now.

Sounds like: Blood Orange, Solange, Jessie Ware

Tennis – No Exit

Tennis

Dreampop husband and wife duo Tennis ramp up the b.p.m on new single, ‘No Exit’.

It’s one of those songs that catches your breath upon first listen – woozy synths and vocals that are just about sensual enough to get you hot under the collar…no more, no less.

Sounds like: Niki & The Dove, Stevie Nicks, Alvvays, Beach House

Men I Trust – Lauren

We’ve been fans of Men I Trust for some time now, so imagine our excitement when a new video popped up in our inbox!

Men I Trust have the cool vibes of the late 90’s, blended with beautiful piano melodies, low fuzzy bass and powerful, yet fragile vocals from the two girls.

The video for ‘Lauren’ was shot by the band at the Hautes-Gorges National Park near their home in Québec.

Ghostly Kisses – Such Words

GHOSTLY KISSES

GHOSTLY KISSES

Ghostly Kisses is a Canadian electronic music duo consisting of Margaux Sauvé on vocals and violin, and Dragos Chiriac at the keyboard and handling production.

The twosome have a real knack of writing melancholic music that you are actually content listening to. Sauvé’s haunting vocals in the beautiful new track ‘Such Words’ perfectly showcases this juxtaposition, and we just can’t stop melting.
