Heading to Toronto, Canada where we meet Matt Kahane & Quin Kiu, aka Dear Pressure, and their dazzling debut single Never.
This from the band: This song is our way of balancing the tension between wanting to go elsewhere and realizing that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. It’s important to own the fact that your sense of self is attached to your sense of place.
We tried to develop a succinct sound for a year, mulling over a variety of sonic palettes, struggling to find something that encapsulated our musical interests while remaining honest. One day we ended up with this interplay between the guitar riff and a synth line which felt like it was trying to break through everything above it. We realized that’s how we wanted to sound and the feeling inspired our debut track. It’s representative of us owning where we are.
