Southern Shores - New Love

From an old favorite comes a new love.

Paradise-pop duo Southern Shores have returned with a new release to follow up last year’s Atlantic EP, a steadfast summer soundtrack in these parts. Halifax’s Jamie Townsend and Ben Dalton produce highly transportive perfection; their songs capture a moment that you wish would linger for hours— just when the sun meets the horizon and the cerulean sky begins to melt into an enveloping mauve. Southern Shores’ forthcoming EP New World, picks up just where their Atlantic EP left off. So sultry, so hot, each of the release’s seven tracks burn like that undying bonfire at the center of those moonlit, seaside dance parties. Aw yeah, you know the ones I’m talking about. New World arrives on Cascine October 2nd, just in time to relive your summer nights. Listen to ‘New Love,’ a single off the EP, below.

Wintercoats - Forest of Lovers (Southern Shores Remix)

Halifax’s Southern Shores, a duo whose Atlantic EP captured my summer’s essence, is back with an end of the year gift in the form of a beautiful remix of Melbourne’s Wintercoats. Already immaculate, James Wallace’s ‘Forest of Lovers’, off his Sketches EP, gets a tropical rerub courtesy of his Canadian labelmates over at Cascine. The label had a awesome year, but next year looks promising with new releases in the works from both Southern Shores and Wintercoats as well as the debut EP from Swedish trio World Tour which drops next month. Download Southern Shores’ remix below.

Video • Southern Shores - Meridian

When I listen to Southern Shores’ Atlantic, I can’t imagine the music flowing from someone’s fingertips— it seems to flow from the sun, drift in from sea. At the beginning of the summer, Jamie Townsend and Ben Dalton played their first ever live show in their hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Based on Andrew Hines’ video from that night, I must find a way to one of those show. Supremely sultry and sweaty, these tropical blissfests burn long into the night— night is young.

Southern Shores // Bonfire

Southern Shores are back from Berlin. Now at home in Halifax, they have a new album. It is gold.

A long drive North, spurred on by Southern Shores, six tracks repeated as we careened through valleys. We climbed. We followed the conversation from mountaintop to mountaintop. Each foot fell to the beat of this epic topical bliss. Atlantic, the duo’s debut EP, dropped on the 12th on Cascine. Decked out with so many smooth transportive tunes, I cannot think of this album as individual tracks. I’ve only listened to the EP as whole, never able, or wanting, to pull myself back from a far off place. I have placed together some footage I’ve filmed with some that I’ve found to go alongside a new mix of ‘Bonfire’ (non-album) which flew in a few days ago from The Apiary.

This album shall not be overlooked.
