Moncton, NB’s indie-rock four-piece Before The Dinosaurs have unveiled their new single, “Cure For A Heartache,” which follows their previous single, “Set Yourself Free.”
“Cure For A Heartache” is a twinge of pain, served neat over a tumbler of acceptance.
“The song was written in the summer of 2021 when (band member) Jordan Best was going through a break-up with his ex-girlfriend, and his former band — simultaneously,” Jordan shares. “While the song was originally written and inspired by my indescribable love for his partner at the time, I found playing and writing the song eased the pain, and realized the cure for a heartache is not just someone you love, but anything you love that brings you joy.”
For Jordan Best (vocals/guitar), Ryan Mazerolle (lead guitar), Chris Bishop (bass), and Christian Arseneault (drums), “Cure For A Heartache” is a Nashville feel, with “a unique twist” as it deviates ever so slightly from BtD’s over-arching soundscape.
Produced, mixed, and recorded by Don Levandier (Frontman of The Motorleague), and mastered by Harry Hess (Arkells, Billy Talent, Barenaked Ladies), it’s a sashay in a tango of love and love lost; a flannel-clad prose on sadness and accepting fate.
“Cure For A Heartache” and “Set Yourself Free” both fall ahead of the band’s forthcoming full-length album, out in Fall 2022.
