“Out with the old, in with the new” is a flawed philosophy. Take this fresh single from Toronto’s Young Clancy as a case in point, wherein vintage soul vibes meet juicy drum samples and laser sound effects to make for something timeless, groovy, infectious. Tell the old it can hang with the new anytime it wants.
“The character in the song feels suddenly alone in their drunken and manic state and begs someone to join them on their ‘Level‘”, according to Young Clancy. Stiff rhythms give way to spacious Rhodes-lined choruses give way to shortly sweet guitar solos in what feels like a perfect musical parallel to the sort of mania he describes, all while making for a listen that’s as easy as it is intriguing.
The singer/songwriter/producer’s EP Vol. II is set to drop on October 4th and, if you happen to be in the Toronto area, you can join in on the fun at the October 6th release party at The Drake Hotel.
