Published Apr 02, 2015Toronto folk trio the Good Lovelies have an impressive streak of award-recognized albums: their 2010 self-titled album won a Juno, 2011's Let the Rain Fall was nominated for a Juno the next year, and 2012's Live at Revolution scored big at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Now, they're looking to to be similarly successful with their next full-length, Burn the Plan, which is due out on May 26.
This is the band's first studio album in four years, and it was recorded at various locations in Toronto with producer Les Cooper.
A press release notes that the collection was created following a period in which Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore spent time developing their own individual sounds outside of the context of the group. As such, "The album is permeated with textures and tones from musical worlds away," with some songs bearing an electronic influence.
You can hear this electronic influence the trailer video below. There's also a short musical teaser snippet, which showcases a more traditional folk style along with the animated album cover.
