Fjord return with new single “If I was to call”

Canadian duo Fjord have just released “If I was to call”, the second single from their forthcoming Shallow Waters EP.

Following on from the laid-back cinematic air created on their Textures EP in 2016, these new songs have an understated vibe that recalls London Grammar, though “If I was to call” has a seductive androgynous vocal that melts like the 80s soul of Sade.

The duo acknowledge that co-producer Tim Bran “ gave it a little bit of an 80’s power ballad feeling, but without the cheese that usually comes with the genre. It’s our personal favorite, preferably enjoyed with a glass of red wine.”

The new songs have an introspective mood with downtempo arrangements given emotional life by the Quebec Symphonic Orchestra. Previous single “Lay Down Your Veil” is a great example of this, being ambient pop for either a rainy Sunday morning or for a Saturday night in when you want to turn the smooth chilled factor up to 11.

Shallow Waters EP will be released on January 25

As a lover of music, cats and chocolate it was inevitable that Paul would end up writing for us. A tireless singer/songwriter from the UK with a tiresome number of music projects, his worrying knowledge of the 80s and the evolution of crisps and confectionery (or chips and candy for our US readers) has seen him both gain jobs and lose friends.
