Every morning you need to rip open the curtains and let the sun shine in.
Sure, it can be tough, but that first step can be the most important part on a pretty special journey. Call it optimism, call it what you will - looking on the bright side is pretty essential.
Canadian group The Seams have decided to open their curtains. The band's core songwriting duo Kyle Connolly (WISH, Fake Palms) and Jonathan Rogers (Elsa) are perhaps better known for sketching out rather more melancholic climes, but this new project represents a definitively upbeat mindset.
So: think 60s pop, think Paisley Underground, think early R.E.M., The Go-Betweens or even those initial Creation Records 45s.
New album 'Meet The Seams' is forthcoming on Hand Drawn Dracula, with Clash able to premiere new cut 'Seeds'.
Anglophone guitar pop that nods towards its influences while stepping patiently out on its own path, 'Seeds' is the sign that bright things are about to occur. Hit play now.
'Meet The Seams' will be released on October 28th.
