Published Jun 10, 2015Toronto/Guelph-based quintet the Folk are set to follow up their 2014 effort We All Say with a brand new LP. Called Every Colour, Present Wonder, the album was recorded with Pat Gregoire at Montreal's Hotel2Tango.
The group released a joint statement about the album's themes via a press release:
Each song is a colour, a glimpse into each personality that comprises our core entity. For four months we lived and breathed this album. From conception to finish, it was our present wonder. It's reflective of our past--what do we have to say or do in order to reconcile ourselves? It's a commentary on the death of family, the deaths of lives not lived and the struggle to rejuvenate life into symbiotic relationships. We settled our past and have cme out stronger, more passionate and more vicious.
As for what the music sounds like, the Folk revealed that they refer to their genre as "FuckPop," explaining, "To fuck is to multiply, pleasure, do. Pop is for everyone. This is FuckPop; a distorted vision of digestible music."
Get your FuckPop on when the Folk release Every Colour, Present Wonder on September 18. Prior to that, the band have some forthcoming tour dates available below, including a NXNE slot on June 20 with No Joy, Dirty Frigs and Mexican Slang.
