Canadian Tamara Lindeman has shared the new single/video from her project The Weather Station. The track ‘Atlantic’ is taken from her forthcoming album, ‘Ignorance’ due out February 5th via Fat Possum.
“Trying to capture something of the slipping feeling I think we all feel, the feeling of dread, even in beautiful moments, even when you’re a little drunk on a sea cliff watching the sun go down while seabirds fly around you; that slipping feeling is still there, that feeling of dread, of knowing that everything you see is in peril,”
“I feel like I spend half my life working on trying to stay positive. My whole generation does. But if you spend any time at all reading about the climate situation circa now, positivity and lightness are not fully available to you anymore; you have to find new ways to exist and to see, even just to watch the sunset. I tried to make the band just go crazy on this one, and they did. This is one where the music really makes me see the place in my mind; the flute and the guitar chasing each other, wheeling around like birds, the drums cliff like in their straightness; I love the band on this one.”
Certain tracks stick out on the first listen. Lindeman’s voice with its deep yet dreamy quality sticks out straight away. There’s an addictive quality to the way the track builds. Adding little melodies on synths and guitar with the constant drum rat-a-tatting in the background. This lady will be bringing some great music this year for sure.
