The single"CU Again" is the title track on Adrian Underhill's album that was produced by Kindness (Solange, Robyn, Blood Orange). The 10 songs on ‘CU Again’ are the culmination of many years of sonic exploration. Having grown up in Vancouver before moving to Montreal and then Toronto, Adrian spent time in rock bands and making lo-fi recordings on his own, before moving towards a 70s songwriter vibe infused with a more modern production style & sound. The LP is set to be released later this year.
Adrian's thoughts on the song:
"One thing I really like about this song is that it is left open ended who the song is being sung for. It’s about the universal feeling of missing someone and that could be a platonic or romantic relationship. To me, the song invites you as the listener to also become the singer of the song, the protagonist, to sing along if you have ever felt the feeling of missing somebody that means a lot to you."

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
