The music video for RUM DO's No Worries is premiering today with Psychedelic Baby Magazine — watch it now.
The audiovisual approach of the group has been ever-present since their debut single in 2017. The psychedelic visuals have gone through different phases with each release, from 3:4 standard definition with the 'lay down, lovers' EP, to 16:9 HD with 'Why', to 4k with the intervening double-a single.
The upcoming release, You Just Have To Be, is back in the 16:9 format with that familiar RUM DO approach. Videos and singles will be released monthly up until the EP's full release in April 2023. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel / follow the band on Spotify to be notified when each piece is revealed to the interworld!

RUM DO's Single Lighter Will Put Your Mind At Ease
The first single No Worries which was released in December, represents some of RUM DO's most upbeat sounds to date; funky bass, warm textures and calming vocals.
Well they've very much carried on in this vein with the release of Lighter, which is an airy upbeat classical guitar track with washing ambience, soft synths and an organic rhythm.
Speaking of Lighter, Bill Cutbill of RUM DO said —
"This was written and recorded during the stay-at-home order. I was very much trying to use music and the recording process to channel some inner peace and tranquility at that time.
"To me, No Worries and Lighter will forever be linked by that conscious effort to meditate on a feeling of lightness and joy.
"Being stuck at home was both stressful but also in some ways calming. I hope that people listening to the single will absorb some of those feelings that I was able to conjure while recording it at home.
True to RUM DO's style, Lighter has a lot of hidden texture. What's slightly different in the case of this single, is the lack of digital percussion, the use of open space, and the light use of vocals.

World News Love Themselves As Much As They Love You
Toronto electronic hardware duo, World News have just announced two shows. That's right, they're scheduled to flood Toronto's Handlebar and Sarnia's Maud's Variety with cavernous synthesized sound in just a few weeks.
Not only that, but there's a plethora of incredible talent performing alongside them... and perhaps more importantly there is a hardware focus with all the acts. Get ready for big saws, envelopes, knob twiddling and spooky vocals all around.
TORONTO: Saturday January 21st 2023
w/ MOONBEAN and Erin Corbett
SARNIA: Friday January 27th 2023
Erin Corbett is a non-binary experimental musician that makes incredible decomposing and abstract electronic soundscapes with infectious stuttering grooves.
MOONBEAN is a queer Toronto-based artist, just back from an epic European tour! Led by Katy, expect a glittering hardware performance with big hooks and melodies, but watch out for the dancing caped crusader.
GUCC are Sarnia's premier synth and electronic group, making fun and funky, often humorous music. Who knows, perhaps Bill will be there to sing a little wrestling dittie for the first time ever (check here if this tickles your fancy)?
And then of course, there's World News. What can we say about those guys... the picture below says it all. This will be the second show with all new music, all new synthesizers, and an all new lineup.
So yah, see you in the mosh pit.

Electronic Pop Returns with RUM DO's No Worries
We are delighted to share RUM DO's new single No Worries with the world.
You won't want to miss this funky track, which features Harry Perry's most infectious bass-line ever, brought about from a first time collaboration with epic drummer Bradley Thibodeau (of Possum and Ready The Prince).
No Worries is the debut single from RUM DO's third EP — You Just Have To Be [SS118], which will be trickling to you track by track until its full release in April 2023.
Talking about the origins of the single, Bill Cutbill of RUM DO said —
"When writing the lyrics for No Worries I was very consciously trying to channel something which threw away my normal melancholy outlook and focused more on the positives.
"During the pandemic, I was searching for an inner sense of peace by meditating musically on the thought of it; what that might feel like and sound like. These were the bones on which the track was built.
"It was fantastic to work with Brad because he added an infectious shuffle that immediately gave it more purpose rhythmically. I really hope listening to No Worries also fires off some serotonin in your brain because for me it really does emit a feeling of warmth, peace and relaxation!"
