Toronto electronic pop duo Prince Innocence have basically treated us to nothing but gold over the years, and the latest single to emerge from the eagerly-anticipated Easy Life EP is no exception. “Polished” is their first single since last year’s magnificent “Manic”, and it’s even slower and sultrier than that now-classic track. Even when it kicks up a notch for the last verse, it’s still a subtle, restrained song that knows exactly how to keep the downtempo vibe going. Can’t wait for Easy Life.
Everything Prince Innocence records is mesmerizing – they’ve got a knack for sleek, hypnotic, electronic pop. 2015 slow-burner “Manic” doesn’t fall short of their incredibly high standard. Next year brings a new EP from the Toronto duo called Easy Life, and we can’t wait. Glad to have them back.
“Manic” is available now from Bandcamp.
Prince Innocence reintroduced themselves in a huge way with “Manic,” their best video to-date. Directed by Talvi, the band’s lead singer, the clip is slowed down and sultry. Filmed in the house of a family friend that has just passed away, so the sadness that both Josh and Talvi exude throughout is both palpable and real.
We can expect a new EP from the band next year, but in the meantime there are many songs in the back catalogue to dive into.
