SONG PICK: Favours – Left Behind (Video)
“Left Behind,” the new single by Canadian duo Favours is beautifully nostalgic and irresistible from the start. The nostalgia comes from the warm synth tones of the Juno-106 together with energetic 808 drums and some clear 80s guitar progressions. Think Stan Ridgway meets Howard Jones meets Kim Wilde, combining their creative forces in the here and now.
When asked about “Left Behind,” the duo says:
We created this track with guidance from Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene, production by Mark Andrade, as well as additional tracking and mixing by Alexandre Bonenfont. This collaborative approach allowed us to develop a new sound that amplifies the emotional elements of our music. This song’s concept is rooted in moving on and exploring new opportunities, much as we as a band have restructured and shifted our approach to making music.
The Jacq Andrade video directed and edited video supports the song’s story visually and makes for an intriguing clip. Check out “Left Behind,” our Song Pick of the Day:
