Quebec-based duo Fjord are masters at creating lush, ambient pop, rich in both synthesized and recorded textures. "Shallow Waters", their new EP (out January 25th) follows their career with 13+ million Spotify streams for their Top5 Songs only. Earning them nods from The FADER, HillyDilly, The405, Huffington Post and many more catalyzing an extensive tour across Canada. Fjord shared their first single since 2016, "Lay Down Your Veil" with an accompanying music video directed and animated by Paul Laberge (who's done videos for Porter Robinson, Elton John, Tinashe, Imagine Dragons). The video has yet nearly 1000k views and the feedback is amazing. The abstract video mirrors the cinematic quality of the gorgeous, downtempo hybrid electronic-ambient pop track dense with layers of juxtaposing crystalline and coarse vocals, rolling drums, and vivid orchestral arrangements. The song got added to Spotifys "New Music Friday Canada", "New Music Now", "Indie All Stars", "Indie Pop Chillout" as well as Apple Musics "Todays Chill", "Best Of The Week", "Undwind", "Made in Quebec" and "Canadian Indie Radio" Playlists.
"Lay Down Your Veil" is the first single off Fjord's forthcoming Shallow Waters EP, which is out early February, was written in Quebec City, produced in London with the help of Tim Bran (Bloc Party, London Grammar, La Roux), and features live string recordings from the Quebec Symphonic Orchestra.
Currently there are no planned tour dates.
Press release coming soon.
