What began as a collaborative passion project between Mathijs Kriebel + Rich Weller, two like-minded creatives, turned into something much more substantial, refined and recognized as something that needed to be pursued as a full-time project. With that, The Accents were born; an infectious blend of electronic indie-pop gliding through a reel of Ektachrome vintage film before hitting your ears.
Good things take time to develop and The Accent’s forthcoming Still On Film EP is no exception. Co-produced by Mike Brandolino (of rising Canadian indie-pop group Valley), the EP is a collection of stories navigating self-doubt set to shimmery synth lines and punchy samples that weave in and out of driving 808 beats.
Still On Film’s first single, “Life In A Video,” explores the strands of uncertainty we have within ourselves and how living life through old formats could make for an easier experience.
