  • 🚨NEW SONG🚨
'Old Soul, Young Heart' is available on all streaming services now! This is track 6 from our new album CASCADIA, out Feb 8, 2019. Here's a video of us performing the song live in our friend Sarah's beautiful apartment, and for those who like to dig a bit deeper, here's a bit about the song from Ben: 
In 2007 at the very beginning our our careers, we were asked to open up for our (at the time) new friend Dan Mangan at a venue called Chapel Arts in Vancouver. It was the beginning of a long friendship with Dan. The staple of his set at that time was a song called So Much For Everyone. He would get the room singing a simple “ohh ohh” part, while he built the song into an emotional crescendo which peaked with the line “I will drop my gun”. His performance at that show was a life-affirming example of how powerful music can be and how important it is. That song still brings me to tears. ‘Old Soul, Young Heart’ is a song that I wrote as a thank you to Dan for making art that moves me. After writing the first verse of the song, it sat on the shelf for many years. I had visions of writing a new verse for every person in my life that had ever inspired me, but ironically the words never came. In the end, I decided to complete the song with a verse about my dad, who aside from my mom, has probably been the biggest influence on my writing. In hindsight, “A Tale of Two Dads” would have been a great title for this song...

  • THE STORY BEHIND UNAMERICAN: Around November of last year it was suggested that Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene might be a good person to produce our upcoming record, which was very exciting for me, as he is one of my favourite musicians. So a phone call was arranged to discuss the possibility of working together. I dialed him up and we started chatting. As we spoke, it became immediately apparent that Kevin was in the bath, which was both disarming and strangely relaxing. The gentle lapping of bath water was somehow putting me at ease as I talked to one of my musical idols. At some point during the conversation he said to me “man, just do what you do best: write a pop song!” 

And so, listen: when Kevin Drew tells you to write a pop song, you sit the fuck down and you write a pop song. So that’s what I did. We didn't end up working together on the record, but our conversation sparked this song and that's good enough for me!

I would like to clarify that UnAmerican is not specifically about Kevin Drew, rather, I just liked how it sounded when I hung up the phone and said aloud to myself “Hmmm. Well then. Kevin wants to hear a pop song.”
