Canadian post-rock band New Design heard about our podcast through a Reddit thread. This blew our minds. A distinctive post-rock band stumbling across our dinky little show? This is what we dream about.
I always like to imagine post-rock songs as movie soundtracks. Reflective activities like relaxing, taking a walk, or exploring your own thoughts and feelings couple well with post-rock. New Design's latest record, Far From Home (2015) would make one hell of a movie score. The guitar work turns from spidery, intricate lines to elegant sun flares and swaying chimes. The band can leap from a crawling pace to a rapid fire sprint seamlessly. You don't ever have to take off those rose-colored glasses.
Storm was at the helm for this interview. The band played four songs from Far From Home, and chatted about their plans for a new release. They also talked about their current Spring Tour, the music scene in Canada, their influences, and their hometown of Brampton.
Sit back and enjoy... we're glad you're here.
