Exclusive First Listen: Jay Feelbender's Sad Song

We're delighted to bring you some exclusive new sounds from alt-pop pioneer, Jay Feelbender!

Yes, to celebrate the release of his new single 'Pool Paranoia' Jay visited Safe Sounds to lay down some heavy hearted tracks. Today we've released a tender acoustic version of 'Sad Song', which was recorded in the real-life bank vault we operate from.

Watch above or visit our YouTube channel to check out all our recent sessions and releases.

The tender side of Jay Feelbender...

For those of you familiar with Jay's solo music and work with the band Goodbye Honolulu, you'll know that he explores all range of emotions, from exhilaration to fragility.

As the name would suggest, sadness is at the core of this latest track. Inspecting parts of the 'Sad Song' lyrics — "I gave all I had/ and you wasted both our time/ but if you wanted me to/ I would have given you my life" — Jay plays with familiar concepts of love and loss using simple sentences that resonate with authenticity. Sometimes the simplest words hit the hardest, and we're feeling this one.

Just like the first track, Party Down The Street, this song's a beauty and we're really pleased to have been able to capture such pure emotion. We're sure you'll feel it too... be sure to drop us a message in the YouTube comments.

Jay Feelbender's new single 'Pool Paranoia' is also available now on all streaming platforms. If you want to sing along, check out the lyric video.

...and that brings to an end our Jay Feelbender session. Thanks Jay for taking the time to drop in. We'll see you on and off-stage at the heart of the Toronto music scene!

Jay Feelbender's Headed To A Party Down The Street - And You're Invited!

We're delighted to share the first of two acoustic tracks we recorded last month with Toronto-based alt-pop artiste Jay Feelbender! That's right, Jay hit up the Safe Sounds bank vault ~ a real-life bank vault at our location in downtown Toronto.

Watch above or visit our YouTube channel to enjoy 'Party Down The Street' in this multi-camera live session extravaganza.

Who is the real Jay Feelbender?

Jay is an amalgamation of many influences. Growing up in the Toronto folk-country scene as the child of a musician, with Shirley temples at the bar and naps behind the drum kit, he entered high school and formed the alt-rock band Goodbye Honolulu. Goodbye Honolulu have performed for thousands opening for Spanish rock band Hinds on multiple U.S tours and performing across North America.

In his solo material, Jay pushes his alt-pop vision with lushly produced tracks that go bang. Jay expresses the through-line of music influencing an artist’s young life; from the fun to the fragile, the introspective to the explosive.

With Party Down The Street, we have a chilled out acoustic version of what is undoubtedly a hook laden pop-song. We love Jay's voice - deep and warm like a hug from a best friend.

We hope you enjoy!

Oh, plus Jay Feelbender's new single will be released worldwide on July 29th so watch this space.

Medicine Tree Springs To Life

Bill Cutbill's centrepiece to AMAZONAS, 'Medicine Tree' has just been given the music video treatment with never before seen footage from Bill's travels in the Brazilian jungle!

It's premiering now over at It's Psychedelic Baby Mag, so go check it out to immerse yourself in the weighty yet calming atmosphere of the rainforest.

In the article, Bill also discussed how the song came to be from a piece of poetry written in the jungle. Here's a little taster ~

"My guides would occasionally point out plants, trees, or gooey saps seeping from them, and explain their medicinal properties; sometimes it might be a natural insect repellent, but others were treatments for things such as malaria. It really got me thinking about the amazing power of the Amazon – there is still so much potential for healing, yet through deforestation powered by greed, I really do wonder if it, or we, will be here long enough to find the cures that no doubt exist there."

AMAZONAS arrives on limited shiny 140g black vinyl [SS107]. It's the first 12" record released on the label/collective and we're holding an awesome release party at The Cameron House on June 2nd.

Grab your tickets now to secure your spot for this intimate night of music featuring Bill Cutbill & the Schmoozy Lighters with support from Idious Carrie (of Kali Horse) and Kiss Kali Die Die (of Bad Waitress) with visuals from Provincial Parcs.
