Saskatoon’s own Too Soon Monsoon has released the second single from their upcoming debut full-length album, Waves, which is planned for release in Spring 2019. The single, entitled “Mountains of Blue” was produced, engineered and mixed by The Ghost of Adam J Productions (Adam Grant), and mastered by Case Mastering (Trevor Case).
The song was inspired by a Lawren Harris painting in the Remai Modern in Saskatoon. Vocalist, Greg shares more,
“Last October, I went to the gallery after returning from the tour through the Rocky Mountains and was instantly drawn to this painting. I returned to the painting a few days later and noticed trees and colours that I had missed before. It got me thinking about what other little things I miss in a busy, distracted life. This artwork inspired the topic of the song and much of the new record: slowing down and taking more time to appreciate the little things.”
The music video shows the band taking time to slow down and experience nature while on a Western Canadian tour through the Mountains this past September.
This tour and the new record are made possible with the support of Creative Saskatchewan’s grant programs.
