There’s something special about fall. The leaves start to turn, the humidity goes away, and the air is full of new beginnings. It also means that we’re back from vacation and settling into our Silent Shout offices, humming with excitement over all of the music we get to share with you. Welcome back!
This calming bit of dreamy pop from Best Fern, a Montreal-based project by Alexia Avina and Nick Schofield (from Saxsyndrum, among others), is a perfect way to ease into the season. Avina’s repeatedly sung mantras–“Are you well?”, “You know you can do anything you want to”–are a reminder to check in, take care and dream big for yourself. It’s all wrapped in a delicate melodic swirl and a baseline that gently bobs up and down as you breathe in and out, and we’re in love with it.
It’s from their debut EP, which you should absolutely check out.
