Favours is made up of Jacq Andrade, Alexander Zen and Mark Andrade. Their debut album, Made to Wait, was released in 2020 and the song “Stowaway” has been featured on Netflix and CBC Gem shows. Recently, Favours built a home recording studio in a former halfway house in Mimico. The studio serves as a practice space and home to Alex, as well as their central creative hub for all music videos and photography projects.
Favours’ Left Behind EP, which was released on November 12th, and features a fresh dream pop, new wave sound inspired by the trio’s shared love of 80’s new wave and DIY post-punk. The band collaborated with a strong team for Left Behind, enlisting the talents of Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning to play bass, the engineering chops of Tallies’ Dylan Franklin, and the mixing prowess of Alexandre Bonenfont.
The EP’s newest single, “Escaping,” is a song about the secrets that you keep inside. All of those hidden thoughts. Starting with a heavily affected guitar loop, it evolved into a track that makes you move. A bop where you can feel the mystery while also wanting to put on your dancing shoes.
