Album: Saw The Sun
Release Date: January 25, 2017
Toronto’s The Naive consists of Sintja Baba on https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/prix-viagra-pharmacie/ guitar, keys, and vocals, Jeff Deegan on bass, Brandon Wall on guitar, and Stefan Hegerat on drums. On January 25, 2017, the Toronto-based band released their debut EP entitled Saw The Sun. The release features four tracks that were originally written 7 years ago, but crafted further when recording began 2 years ago. Now, fans (and future fans) of the group can hear the band’s efforts through physical and digital releases.
When hearing the band is partially pop, I was hesitant on the originality as pop music often sounds similar to other releases. Yet, with the pop elements, it bares originality with the fusion of jazz into the tracks. In short, this combination is very pleasant. The musical arrangements are complex, yet bear some simplicity to them. The lyrical content has thought put into it. For example, the single “Saw The Sun” features the lyrics “Clouds stretch out in front of me/I’m holding out for the sun to come/Tops of the trees are telling me ‘you ain’t climbed high enough yet.” It is open to the listener’s personal interpretation on their own experiences. The vocals round out the four tracks smoothly.
Although the album will not likely be included on my playlists in heavy rotation, the band is on my radar. Overall, it’s a good listen.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
