Prolific Canadian singer/songwriter Daniel Romano will release his seventh solo album Modern Pressure on 19 May 2017 via New West Records. Following his ambitious and genre-spanning full-length Mosey from last year, Modern Pressure was written in observational scrutiny beneath the overcast atmosphere of 2016 and vigorously tackles the present-day heaviness we contain in the jotting bones of our guilty expressions. Vice’s music site Noisey premiered the third track from the album recently, calling it ‘a dreamy, laid back head-nodder featuring shuffling shakers, jangly tambourine, and ever-present, slinking guitar lines’.
‘Roya is a celebration of women,’ Romano says of the song. ‘Roya is to represent the femininity in nature and the universal She. This is a devotional memoir pertaining to the strength, endurance, spirit, and godlike gravity of our mothers, sisters, lovers and friends.’
Of the album, Noisey praises, ‘It’s sonically spiritual to 2016’s Mosey, and shows Romano continuing to sharpen his signature sound, combining elements of retro-tinged rock ‘n’ roll, country and psychedelia to create a vibrant tapestry of tunes that feel just as at home in 2017 as they might in 1965.’ Modern Pressure will be available at all streaming services and for purchase on vinyl, CD, and digital download upon release.
