"Recently, our friend and director, Henry Acteson, had shown us this old film camera that simultaneously shot four different photos to create moving like images. We loved the vibe and wanted to add a little flavor with animations for our “All Night Baby” video. We met up in Vancouver for a weekend and shot the footage over the span of a couple days.
The song comes from our album Slow Wave, showcasing a lusher, modern approach to our brand of pop-sensible, rock and roll. Soaked in the bright psychedelia of the 1960’s and dipped in the indie rock explosion of the new millennium, our music can best be described as a bridge between the two. "
wwoman is the project of Pittsburgh artist Gi Smee, who regards the project as “a pitstop on their way to what’s really important.” Within new track “FOA” and its soft atmosphere and piercing fuzz, there’s a palpable sense of escapism from reality. The track is described as “a journey of will through the sea of chance.” Gi explains: “This is what it feels like to float away from your home and family and planet against your will.”
Musically, “FOA” shows wwoman mesh various aspects, from lush synths and a bouncy bass line to smatterings of guitar in the second half. The rhythm section projects a hypnotic allure. The “if I found my way,” vocal hook provide is wholly effective, even in its subtle transitioning from the verses. This is a great synth-pop groover to bring you into a chilled-out weekend.

Andrew La Tona is a songwriter / producer / multi-instrumentalist from Toronto, Canada. Active since 2001, Andrew has been a part of many different projects and genres, and is currently expressing himself as an alternative / experimental artist.
Released earlier this month, "Human" is Andrew's second full-length album in four years. Centered around the distaste for politicians and elite of today, this album boldly says what we've all felt grumbling inside us for a while now. The themes of fear, resentment, resistance and lack-of-fulfillment run strong through these eight tracks.
The lead single, "Power and Prowess" is sort of a story of distaste, sung loud and passionately overtop of an incredibly driving and powerful rock track with lots of danceability. It's about being fed up with the arrogance of the ruling class and their influence on our every day lives and the desire to be free from it.
"Human" is an album for everyone. It may be classified as an Alternative record, but the pop sensibility runs deep, world and latin rhythmic and melodic influences make numerous showcases, and Andrew's depth of musical influences shape this fresh independent release of the summer.
"I began writing Human in 2016 while I was in Costume Party with Andy Wiseman before I decided to leave the band and focus on writing more material on my own. I wanted to write and record anything that came naturally to me, and after a while, I realized I had a political album on my hands. Prior to this, I had written songs like "Want" (2014) and "I'll Bring You Down" (2015) which were of similar nature, but it was never really a full-time topic of mine. This time around I set out with a purpose."
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
