Some very exciting news from Montreal today: the birth of a new project from Nick Schofield (of Saxsyndrum and many other Montreal things) and Alexia Avina. The duo call themselves Best Fern, and we’ve got the pleasure of premiering their debut single “A Way” today.
A short but beautiful ambient pop song that twinkles and gleams, “A Way” is a very exciting first release, recalling some of our favourite ambient moments of Blue Hawaii’s work. Needless to say, we want to hear more from these two as soon as possible. Two minutes is not nearly enough for a sound this enticing!
Best Fern are on tour in Ontario and Montreal in May and June. Check out all the dates on their Soundcloud, and if you’re in Toronto, see them on May 13 on a stacked bill including Silent Shout faves Merganzer and Tess Roby.
