“Sincerely, Future Pollution is an agitated document for surreal times.” - NPR

“Timber Timbre’s music—a smoky, cinematic take on fundamental sounds like blues, folk, and early R&B—is a nice fit for tackling the shocking state of America…The pointedly political ‘Sewer Blues’ is stark and ominous, while ‘Grifting’ has all the synthed-up swagger of
Bowie at his funkiest.” – The AV Club

“...a perfect representation of our conflicted, uncertain times, ...a challenging,
uncompromising listen.” - DIY Magazine

“Gothic atmospherics…Talking Heads grooves…ominous John Carpenter
reverberation.” – 4/5 Mojo

“An Orwellian manifesto custom-made for 2017.” – 8/10 Clash

Montreal, QC-based trio Timber Timbre recently unveiled the video to “Sincerely, Future Pollution”, the title track to their recent sixth album, released on Arts & Crafts. The video was directed, animated and produced by Joël Vaudreuil.

Additionally, having recently played a sold-out show at the Islington Assembly Hall, the band return to the U.K. in October, including two shows in London at Bush Hall and Oslo and have now revealed more dates for a Canadian run that begins in Toronto on November 9 and also hits Hamilton, Guelph, Peterborough, St. Catharines and Quebec City. All tour dates are listed below.

Timber Timbre have always created music that traces a shadowed path, using cues of the past to fuse the sound of a distant, haunted now. On Sincerely, Future Pollution, the band coats the stark, sensual sound of 2014’s Polaris Music Prize Short-Listed and JUNO Award nominated album Hot Dreams in an oil-black rainbow of municipal grime. It is the cinema of a dizzying dystopia, rattled by the science fiction of this bluntly nonfictional time.

For the recording, the trio – armed with “secret weapon” Olivier Fairfield on drums – travelled to La Frette chateau outside Paris, where they looked to the studio’s array of archetypal synthesizers for the flesh of the songs. Be it the freedom of recording abroad, or the revelation of these unexplored instruments, Timber Timbre found a release from artistic constriction and created its most daring work yet. A blend of the album’s mid-apocalyptic setting and its idyllic recording, Sincerely, Future Pollution is a romance of neoteric machines and dark, futuristic hues: with promise as beautiful as it is unsettling.  

Wrestling sincerity from abstraction, Taylor Kirk submits to the cycle of self-obsession at the album’s core. Sincerely, Future Pollution is Timber Timbre’s document of this generation’s degeneration and disarray. With Kirk as narrator, a party to the play, we get caught in the folly of the echo chamber, awed by the contrast of this gothic modern age.

TIMBER TIMBRE RELEASES VIDEO FOR “GRIFTING”

SINCERELY, FUTURE POLLUTION OUT TOMORROW,  APRIL 7

PRE-ORDER FROM ARTS & CRAFTS

NORTH AMERICAN TOUR BEGINS APRIL 28

Montreal-based trio Timber Timbre premiered their video for “Grifting” – off new album Sincerely, Future Pollution – today via The FADER, who wrote that it’s like “walking up one of Escher’s staircases, going up and up before moving onto a different plane, urged on by the song’s steely, funky organ.”

The tarot inspired video was directed, animated, and produced by Elenor Kopka. “We were fortunate to be able to work with Elenor again,” says frontman Taylor Kirk. “I can't say that it was a collaboration exactly because with Elenor we grant total artistic freedom and have faith that her vision and alchemical practice will not only serve the song but elevate it to another plane altogether. I don't think I can even sing the song now without conjuring these images."

Sincerely, Future Pollution will arrive in stores tomorrow, April 7 via Arts & Crafts, following praise from outlets both stateside and abroad, including NPR Music (First Listen, All Songs Considered), The AV Club, Exclaim!, Clash Magazine, and Loud and Quiet, among others.

Following a European and UK tour that sets off tonight in France, the band – Taylor Kirk, Mathieu Charbonneau, and Simon Trottier – will embark on their North American tour beginning April 28.
