Anemone have teased their upcoming album which is being released through Luminelle Recordings, the label founded by Chris Cantalini of Gorilla Vs Bear, while in Canada, their home country, they will be working with Royal Mountain Records. Today in anticipation the band is dropping an exclusive track early to give fans a glimpse of what’s ahead.
“Where you go, I want to be/ A hole inside your head,” sings Chloé Soldevila on the new single “Daffodils,” The line acts as both a promise and a threat – this is music that will stick with you, that will live inside your brain, that will become a part of you forever. This is music that refuses to be ignored.
Gorilia vs Bear premiered the song writing “After winning our hearts forever with their irresistible debut EP and a handful of unforgettable live performances earlier this year at SXSW, Montreal’s Anemone return with a soaring new single. The group’s dreamily sweeping psych-pop billows skyward like a wave of sunshine on their empowering anthem “Daffodils.”
Soldevila goes further, telling us “the song ”Daffodils” is about being strong and positive, as in fearless and able to let go of someone who is not good for you despite your attachment – I felt like the depiction of the track would need to be in a place where you could feel the metaphor of a vast horizon of open possibilities. Wide and magical open spaces are so powerful to me.”
