Mary Cassidy & Jon Lawless "Verbs"

Mary Cassidy & Jon Lawless "Verbs"
Guelph's Mary Cassidy & John Lawless were initially billed as a folk duo, but that description doesn't really seem to fit their new single, "Verbs."

This upbeat track, which features Travis Taylor, is anchored by a straightforward dance pulse, soul-tinged organs and funky guitar stabs, making it much closer to disco-geared Arthur Russell than rustic Canadiana. Cassidy and Lawless trade verses before the song makes its way towards a guitar-heavy instrumental outro, leading to a pretty sweet little gem of a song.

The duo reportedly have an EP in the works, but for now check out "Verbs" below.
