Anemone Share “Sunshine;” Announce Debut Album on Luminelle Records

Anemone might be the  brainchild of Montreal’s Chloé Soldevila but it’s the chemistry between each band member that really brings the band to life. Today the band is announcing their debut album Beat My Distance on Luminelle Records. To celebrate they are releasing a new song from the album titled “Sunshine (Back To The Start).” Soldevila explains the song is about “Overcoming the pattern of falling in love with someone who is unworthy, but that you still believed it could work. I called it ”Sunshine” because this song should resonate positively – it is about focusing on the bright side and coming out a stronger person; daydreaming of better, sunnier days.

Anemone formed after Soldevila met  Zachary  Irving  at  a  show, then soon after Miles Dupire-Gagnon at a bar,  and  he  then introduced  her  to  Gabriel Lambert.  The  musical connection  was immediate,  and  he  four  began  working  on songs  together  soon  after. Samuel  Gemme  was  a friend and  sound  engineer  who worked  on  their  recordings,  spending  so  much  time  in  the studio  with  them  that  he eventually  joined  the  band. The  final  lineup  of  Anemone was set.

Something  happens  when  we’re  all  onstage  together,”  says  Dupire-Gagnon  “It’s really  special.  There’s  nothing  else  like  it.” Lambert  agrees.  “The  focus  of  the  live show  is  to  make  people  loose,  getting  them  to  dance,  breaking  people  out  of  their shyness.  Making  people  go  crazier  and  crazier  every  night.  Our  mission  was  to capture  that  feeling  on  the  record.

Beat  My  Distance  plays  just  as  well  full-volume  on  a  stereo  as  it  does  through headphones, reminding  listeners  that  first  and  foremost,  Anemone  is  a  real  live band,  not  just  a  solo bedroom  studio  project.  This  is  music  to  be  blasted  from  car speakers  and  at  parties,  a communal  experience  intended  to  be  shared,  the  kind  of emotional  catharsis  that  can  pack  a dance  floor-sometimes  even  packing  the  stage as  well-  and  bring  an  entire  room  full  of strangers  together.” The  music  comes  from a  place  of  joy  and  freedom,”  says  Dupire-Gagnon “It’s  not  all  planned  out.  It’s  a party  for  real.”
