Toronto's Charlotte Day Wilson returned today with "Doubt", her first new single since the release of her acclaimed 2016 debut EP CDW. Zane Lowe gave “Doubt” its radio premiere this morning on Beats1, calling Charlotte a “fantastically brilliant, tasteful artist”. The Fader followed with the track’s online premiere, calling it “...a gorgeous track that instantly finds a camaraderie with the listener in its warm and honest handling of regret.”

“I wrote this song after a period of time where I had been traveling quite a bit for work,” Charlotte told The Fader, “I was reflecting on my relationship and realizing I’d been taking it for granted. This song was me trying to confront the things that I felt were holding me back and making it hard to feel deserving of love.”

Next year brings the promise of more new music from Charlotte, as well as her continued evolution as a transcendent live performer, building on sold out headline appearances from New York to London during the year of touring that followed CDW's release.

"Doubt" catalogues the growth and uncertainty of that period, a stirring demonstration of Charlotte's power and poise and the certainty of her emergence as an essential voice in 2018 and beyond.

Liza Anne has announced her debut album, Fine But Dying. Out March 9 via Arts & Crafts, the LP is a fearless and biting exploration of Liza’s own psyche and the demons that live within it.

Recorded at La Frette studios in Paris (Feist, Nick Cave) and produced by Zachary Dyke, Fine But Dying sees Liza treading new sonic territories inhabited by unforgettable pop hooks and gritty, distorted guitar licks. To accompany the announcement, Liza has released the video for lead single “Paranoia”, a driving vignette about her panic anxiety disorder, which NPR Music called “bold in both sound and subject” and which Billboard says “presents the duality of her new pop sound and distorted guitars, illustrating the contrast between how she presents herself and the reality of the obsessive, anxious thoughts that overwhelm her”.

WATCH AND SHARE “PARANOIA” HERE

Liza has also announced an extensive national headlining tour in support of the record, which includes a stop at SXSW as well as performances in Vancouver and Toronto. Full tour dates can be found below.

Fine But Dying is Liza’s most confessional work to date - a portrait of a woman coming to terms with heartbreak, mental illness, and the changing tides of adulthood. It’s also an album of dualities, one that reveals an artist who is tough and vulnerable all at once.

“This is my woman at her wildest self album,” says Liza, and the songs on Fine But Dying cement that. Liza’s crystalline voice is alternately beguiling and jarring as she sets her distress to music on “Panic Attack” sends up the hollow phoniness of southern hospitality on “Small Talks” and sneers and snarls her way through the third-wave feminist anthem of “Kid Gloves”. Standout track “Closest To Me” is the sister song to “Paranoia”, a stirring, reverb-soaked track that shows Liza reflecting inward towards her flaws.

PRE-ORDER FINE BUT DYING HERE

Liza Anne has made a fan in Zane Lowe, who premiered “Paranoia” on his Beats1 show, and NYLON, who called her an artist with “the keen ability to turn even the smallest of feelings into a sweeping song.” Liza has toured with artists ranging from Margaret Glaspy and Joseph, to Bear’s Den and the Oh Hellos, and she played ACL Festival last year.

FRIGS SHARE NEW TRACK

TORONTO’S FRIGS SHARE NICK CAVE INSPIRED TRACK “DOGHEAD” FROM UPCOMING DEBUT LP ON ARTS & CRAFTS

EUROPEAN TOUR DATES SUPPORTING WOLF PARADE BEGIN TODAY

Today, Toronto’s FRIGS share the new track “Doghead” which was “inspired by a character in Nick Cave's And The Ass Saw the Angel, using partial dialogue directly from the novel,” says vocalist Bria. “Themes in the song include how lustful behaviours and jealously play into a desire for power.”

LISTEN AND SHARE “DOGHEAD” HERE

“Doghead” is the first track to emerge from the band's debut album due for release in early 2018 through Arts & Crafts. More details on the LP will become available soon. Fresh off their show at Toronto’s Massey Hall supporting Slowdive earlier this month, FRIGS begin their European run with Wolf Parade today. Full tour dates can be found below.

FRIGS pairs the raw, emotional grunge of PJ Harvey with the immersive, psychedelic post-punk of early Sonic Youth. With each member bringing a unique set of influences, FRIGS creates a sound that is hard to pin down and an impression that’s unshakable.

Led by the force of Bria’s vocals, the band has earned a reputation for putting on an hypnotic and visceral live performance. Embracing the mercurial and experimental, their shows are built upon instinct; a vocal growl can unexpectedly give way to a hushed whisper; languid drones boil over into guttural and searing tones.

Maintaining the communal, do-it-yourself spirit of their forbearers, the band bought recording equipment and turned their Toronto apartment into a studio where they wrote, engineered, and mixed their 2016 Slush EP and two-sided single “Chest” / “Trashyard”.
