Taylor Grey Amazes on New Video + Single for “Idiot”

Singer-songwriter Taylor Grey has released her catchy new single “Idiot,” available on all music streaming platforms today. The indie pop songstress’ latest track describes the trials and tribulations of  a rocky, dysfunctional  relationship in the modern age as she realizes she’s better off post break-up. Last month, Taylor released her first single in 2 years, “Ever Knew Me,” as she continues to lead up to plans for a fuller release later this year.

Immediately drawn into the edginess of the song’s pop rock rhythms in combination with bold riffs of the electric guitar that align perfectly to her emotive and empowering lyrics, listeners can deeply sense the raw feelings and sensitivities behind “Idiot.” The song starts with a steady pop rhythm, accompanied by Grey’s lyrics of “guessing” what the truth really means in her relationship. As the intensity of her words build, so does the song’s indie pop rock styled energy that ascends with her lyrical expressions. Her words perfectly capture the passion of experiencing a relationship with flawed love; one which turns down a bumpy road before you realize you have the strength to move on as you take your power back.

“Idiot is about leaving a relationship and that person in turn gaslighting you and weaponizing your past – especially your mental health – against you; insisting that you would be crazy to leave, that no one else could love you,” says Grey. This song basically says, “Okay, I would rather be every single name you call me than be with you.” If it‘s “stupid” to leave you, I guess I’m just an idiot, was my take. 

The accompanying music video for “Idiot” visualizes situations that capture the meaning behind Grey’s emphasis on anything being better than her past relationships. The inspiration for this video strongly models the moody angst of a young relationship in the early adult years, but uses scenes embodying the words described in her lyrics to share her sense of frustration, sensitivity and hope for brighter days ahead. The final scene of “Idiot” encapsulates the unfiltered emotions throughout the song with a dark, rainy street setting as Taylor walks into the middle of the scene and lets the rain wash away the pain of her past and looks towards her future. 

In 2017, Taylor released her first studio album Space Case via her standing relationship with Kobalt Music Group and won two Independent Music Awards. The 12-track release featured a notable collaboration with The Vamps’ Brad Simpson. The same year Taylor revealed the Indie-Ballad single “Poison,” which further showcased the playful yet meaningful side of her writing and on-stage presence. A gifted songwriter and talented performer, she provides pristinely produced tracks with enrapturing vocals that surround each piece. Taylor’s 2018 project, her self-titled EP GREY,  was produced by Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein (Foster the People, Ellie Goulding) with executive producer Josh Abraham (Thirty Seconds to Mars, Weezer, P!nk). The release was featured on Official Spotify playlists, and supported by Just Jared, iHeartRadio, among other high profile outlets.

Taylor has toured internationally with Why Don’t We in late 2019, and has shared the stage with Walk the Moon, Fall Out Boy, Sabrina Carpenter, The Vamps, Flo Rida, Jake Miller, and more. Driven by an intricate sound that is vibrant, seductive, classy, and distinctive, Taylor is quickly paving her way in the music industry.  With several releases slated for the upcoming months, she’s going full-steam ahead in her musical endeavors with 2022 gearing up to be Taylor’s biggest year yet.

Captain WildChild Takes Us on a “Fantasy”

Hamilton’s soul piercing, ear-gnashing rock ’n roll trio Captain WildChild embodies the perfect blend of raw, raspy vocals, gripping lyrics, bombastic drums, and unforgettable riffs. They’re often compared to bands like The Dirty Nil, Single Mothers, and PUP, sprinkled with a helping of weird and in-your-face energy. Born from their devotion of creating music together, Chad Chartrand (guitar, vocals) and Nigel Stewart (drums) established the band as a duo in early 2018.

Their first song off their debut full length LP, Infinite Pleasure, is a rollercoaster of a tune called “Fantasy.” The contrast in the instrumental parts between the verses and choruses are very deliberate. It’s a mosh-dance-mosh-dance song, and the feel changes to keep the energy continuously feeding into the next section.

The video, from the shooting to the editing, was done by the band. There’s something to be said for a song about riches and fantasies that is coated in humourous, do-it-yourself artwork. You can see the imperfections of the video are perfect for the song. 

Infinite Pleasure was recorded with producer Mickey Ellsworth (Walk Off The Earth, Shawn Mendes) and releases on August 20, 2022. The album is poised to be a wild ride, full of grit and intensity while still being playful.

Carter & the Capitals are “Lovely Lovely Lovely”

Carter & the Capitals are a high energy five-piece funk group from Edmonton, Alberta. Known for their signature, hard-driving sound, soulful vocals, and catchy instrumental riffs, the Capitals fuse the most danceable elements of the pop and funk genres. By bottling up deep grooves from their wide range of influences and combining them with tight, snappy arrangements, the band offers its own unique take on Western Canadian funk.

Following up on their 2019 self-titled debut album, Carter & the Capitals return with “Lovely Lovely Lovely,” a joyful new track that serves as a reminder for the band to not take themselves so seriously and to enjoy the privilege of playing music with some of their best friends. With lots of growing pains and mistakes over the past years, the Capitals have become closer while making the best music they’ve ever made.

borza Flies with “As high as you can go”

Saint-Sauveur, Québec’s borza is sharing a new release entitled “As high as you can go,” dedicated to reminding listeners that an abundance of love is possible, so it’s worth taking chances.

The track began as a folk song before morphing into the distorted guitars and sweet harmonies of the finished song, creating an energetic and uplifting number meant to elicit excitement in ourselves.

Love can be the energy that propels us forward and allows us to move through nervousness, opening up life changing possibilities.

“Take all the love in your way and grow as high as you can go.”

Carleton Stone Debuts “House in the Hills”

On his third solo album, the self-produced Papercut—armed with a couple lifetimes of songwriting and touring in his rear view mirror—Carleton Stone gets honest about the toll of devotion to craft while illustrating his mastery of it. Through sax-blasted Americana, power-pop laced with ‘80s synth, and dreamy, sophisticated pop melodies, the Nova Scotia songwriter blurs genres to explore a tumultuous few years and some of the scariest questions someone can ask: “What the hell have I done? What if I’d gone down some other path?”

His new song, “House in the Hills” encapsulates the feeling of accepting that we are enough with what we have in our lives. It feels like the media or internet is always trying to sell us something to help improve our lives or make us feel like we aren’t enough, and Carleton Stone is trying to counterbalance that feeling with this song. 

With this song, Carleton really wanted the lyrics and the message of the song to stand out so he kept the production as simple as possible with just enough to help support the story. When the song was written in early 2020, the pandemic wasn’t even a thing that was on most people’s radar at that point. The pandemic only highlighted the feelings in the chorus of this song and reminded us what is truly essential in our lives.

“We wrote this song in the first few days of 2020,” says Carleton. “I remember waking up and checking Instagram and seeing that the U.S. had assassinated a general in Iran and thought ‘Oh wow, this doesn’t seem good,’ and then scrolled down and saw the next piece of news was that Post Malone had got a new face tattoo. I thought the juxtaposition of these two stories encapsulated so much of what is wrong with the ‘click-bait’ world we live in.”
