New Music: MKSTN

Today marks the release of ‘Desires’, by emerging Canadian electronic artist MKSTN.

Through its dreamy and hazy soundscape, the song represents the emotions that we go through when begin to fall in love.

This is a sound that is timelessly classic and ethereal in tone, reminding listeners of the beauty that lies within our own emotions.

“It’s about a love promise between two. Taking that leap of faith of following each others desires to be with one another even though it maybe just temporary. I wanted to capture the excitement, nervousness and butterflies that come with going for ‘it’ even if it has never worked in the past… the anticipation of making the right or wrong decision.”

With an upcoming debut album on the horizon, this Toronto-based talent has already garnered support from the likes of Majestic Casual, Indie Shuffle and CBC Music.

New Music: Flõstate

Rising Canadian R&B duo Flõstate construct a sound that feels almost ethereal in tone. Inspired by the likes of Beach House, Galimatias, Tame Impala, Jimi Hendrix, Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, Enya, Jeff Buckley and Pink Floyd, this outfit craft songs that fuse elements of mellow electronica with dreamy R&B and psychedelic pop.

New single ‘One More Day In Love‘ is a synth-heavy, fluid and nostalgic piece centred on gaining clarity in solitude.

“Alone, with only your memories and regrets, vivid in the night. It can be painful when we finally gain clarity on something from within our memory. It’s so clear, the memory of the feeling, and now too, the understanding of what it meant. It lies plainly in front of us, what it could have meant for our present if we had known. It’s so visceral it opens a door flooding in with fantasies; regrets that paralyse you, eyes wide open in the dark.”
