The Beaches Follow-Up Fascination with ‘Snake Tongue’
JUNO Award winners and one of Sir Elton John’s favourite bands, The Beaches, are back with ‘Snake Tongue.’ Lead singer Jordan Miller says, “the song is about our own experiences, but we hope that it empowers women who are constantly on the receiving end of unwanted attention to take back some control in small but meaningful ways.” Check out the video:
Jane’s Party Live @ The Verge
Toronto band Jane’s Party are Live At The Verge this week where they performed songs from their new album Casual Island.
Jeff Giles from the band says this was the first time they reached out to their friends in the Toronto music community to help with the songs. The band had opportunities to do this in the past but this record was the perfect platform to help bring the songs to life.
Catch their session this weekend:
