“All my life, I’ve been looking for somebody/ Don’t lose sight, hold on”
It’s a brand new music Friday, and back with the release of an incredible new EP, Three, is rising artist Conor Gains. Hailing from Toronto Ontario, the multi-talented singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer delivers a genre-blending sound and style that encompasses and brings together elements of classic soul and R&B, accompanied by the soaring melodies of Psychedelic Southern Rock and Pop – all bound together through the precision of an artist with an ear for Jazz. Taken from his exciting new record, out today; ahead of the release, Conor delivered a powerful new single Light Shine In earlier this month.
Delivering an addictive and bold indie-led instrumental, featuring subtle rock and soul vibes; Light Shine In is a stunning lament all about missing home and delves into being independent and finding fullness within yourself, but also knowing that at the end of the day it’s nice to have someone that has your back. Punchy, bold and dynamic, the track begins with a hard hitting and infectious drum beat that perfectly pairs with the subtly vocoded harmonies from Conor, and brings us firmly into the sonic would of Three with this being the first track on the EP. Alongside the single, Conor also delivered some stunning new visuals to accompany the release that feature him sat in a monochrome filtered world as he quite simply lights up and vibes out as the song plays.
“At the time of writing, I was playing a lot of shows and driving long hours between gigs, which led me to feeling strained and burnt out. “Light Shine In” emerged as a lament about missing home. My new record was co-produced by Mike Wise (Ellie Goulding, James Blunt, Britney Spears) and myself. We sought to create a timeless feeling to these songs, working closely to perfect the production on each track”.
