This summer, I got together with old friends Adam Traynor, Kara Blake and Thea Metcalfe to brainstorm an idea for a new WP video. I had close to zero budget, but they had some cool ideas.
After hearing the new tunes, Adam and Kara selected the song “Everything” – not the usual guns-blazing anthem we choose for a single, but I was game. We shot it at the end of the summer with cinematographer Jules de Niverville. Now it’s ready for your enjoyment.
The song was produced by Murray Lightburn and features Chilly Gonzales on piano. It’s from the new EP Old Dreams, which you can buy or stream on your favourite platform here.
The new video for “Pam Pam” is directed by our longtime friend and collaborator Kara Blake. Katie Ward did the choreography. Chilly Gonzales plays piano on the track, which was produced by Murray Lightburn.
If you like the song, you can download it for free from our Bandcamp or Soundcloud pages. You can still also purchase it as part of this compilation of local Montreal bands, with proceeds going to the Ange-Aimée Woods memorial bursary.
Somehow we let three years go by without a visit to the WP’s hometown of Toronto. That’s to be corrected when we hit TO this Saturday, October 11 at Handlebar (159 Augusta in Kensington Market). Also on the bill are The Almighty Rhombus, The Lord Almightys and Bardos. It’s all put on by our old friends at the Wavelength music series. We are super excited for this return and have prepared a set of songs old and new. Doors open at 9pm and the WP hits the stage at 10:30. Check out my Wavelength interview here.
We’re also happy to present our new video, which premieres today on the Exclaim site. It’s the first release from the batch of tunes we recorded earlier this year. That’s Stacey on the lead vocal and my man Chilly Gonzales on the keys. The video is directed by longtime WP collaborator Kara Blake. Check it out here.
