A Deli Premiere: New single “Breed” off Waterstrider’s new EP

After a year of tribulations, Nate Salman of Waterstrider, poured heavy energies into his newest EP, The Way Out, on 30th Century Records. The result is a warlockian, mesmerizing blend of songs that have the surreal quality of our beloved Enya but with a Julien Ehrlich falsetto and dark, poppy synths. The single “Breed” is melancholy but hopeful. Lines like “Farewell to secrets/I’ll never keep them” are sung with a pure earnestness and are serenaded by keys with an airy, forestlike quality. This experimental, futuristic collection brings Waterstrider into a new realm. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Indie pop artist Struan opens at The End on 03.14

Struan Shields -- who performs music on a first-name basis as Struan -- takes the stage to open for Mike Mains & the Branches at The End on March 14th. The indie pop artist released two singles over the course the past several months which have been raking in the Spotify listens. The first track "Better" brings on the synth-pop of the early 2010s which might give listeners hints of The Naked And Famous or YouTube retrowave artists like FM-84 or The Midnight. The latest track, called "Always", slows things down to a tempo fans of The 1975 or CHVRCHES might find familiar. Struan gets the indie pop formula right, and it'll be worth your while to see him execute it live. Take a listen to "Always" below. - Will Sisskind

Wild Pink releases EP "5 Songs" including remixes, new tracks

Wild Pink's new EP 5 Songs is a delightful listen, and its remixes and new tracks serves as a fitting primer to new listeners. The group's last full-length record Yolk in the Fur came out last July, which means that a taste of a something new was in the cards. Therefore, Wild Pink have compiled two new tracks: The wistful "How's The Tap Here?" about changing relationships, and the anthemic "Coaches Who Cry" about growing up in Virginia. To keep things interesting, the band have also included remixes of three tracks from Yolk in the Fur for the EP: Shy Layers' trip-funky "There Is A Ledger", Dondadi's glitched-out "Love Is Better", and Eerie Gates' atmospheric "All Some Frenchman's Joke". Wild Pink recently performed at Bowery Ballroom, and they're currently on a US tour. While you wait for them to return to NYC, you can listen to "Coaches Who Cry" below. - Will Sisskind

Rikashay - Easy Goin Indie Double Single "Le Hut/Lunaaa"

Easy goin’ indie rock trio Rikashay hail from Markham. They released a double single last fall “Le Hut/Lunaaa”. “Le Hut” opens up with a mellow adult contemporary verse but don’t get sucked in to that world too easily as the song evolves into an all out indie rock attack. “Lunaaa” has a happier tone to the music although I’m not sure the lyrics match that same gleeful tone. The singer’s voice reminds me of Wayne Petti of Cuff the Duke. Rikashay plays Jimmy Jazz in Guelph on March 30th with The Effens and Pacer before hittin' Super Wonder Gallery in Toronto on April 4th. – Kris Gies
