Solar Year – “Brotherhood” (feat. Grimes)
Here’s a new track from Montreal’s Solar Year, taken from the band’s otherworldly new LP Waverly, which was recently premiered underwater in an olympic-sized swimming pool. I’m guessing that was the ideal way to listen to this record, as the hymnal “Brotherhood” sounds a bit like a new age-y Silent Shout floating up from the ocean floor, featuring entrancing/ethereal guest vocals from the duo’s friend Grimes. Solar Year’s David Ertel tells us, “Claire is chanting a dark medieval Nico voice in a duet with me.” Waverly is out now.
