Canadian indie icons Half Moon Run have dropped a new single, “Grow Into Love.”
The track was previously introduced to their fans on their Facebook page during a live-streamed concert they recorded in self-isolation earlier this month.
Devon Portielje says this song has been in the works for years and contains experiences from these years scattered about its lyrics, including “bits and pieces of various experiences in there. A good chunk of this tune came together while we were avoiding the punishingly hot Australian sun on New Year’s day, years ago, by bringing some instruments underneath a barren stage on a hilltop.
“Grow Into Love” is Half Moon Run’s first showing since 2019 in which they released their third LP, A Blemish In The Great Light.
Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
