Nova Scotia-based musician Rich Aucoin has released his new single “The Middle” today. A four-minute sonic journey highlighted by ethereal synths and an insistent bassline, Aucoin’s vocals cut through as the track builds to an emotive peak. The official video premiered today with Noisey and was directed by Meags Fitzgerald – watch it here.
The Hold EP is a dreamy four-track collection and a stark contrast to the short high-tempo songs from his previous release, hinting toward a rebirth for Aucoin. Tracks like “Release” showcase his undeniable ability to transform and manipulate sound. Just as his last album led him on a bike tour across Canada while donating every cent to cancer research, fans should expect nothing less this time around.
