Published Sep 22, 2015Things are looking up for Ontario resident Braden Barrie. The sensitive 20-year-old songwriter behind SayWeCanFly has signed with Epitaph Records, and with his EP Darling due out on October 23, he has shared a video for the title track.
The song is a hooky emo tune in which Barrie's plaintive singing and acoustic guitar strums are overlaid with full-bodied rock instrumentation. It's accompanied by a cute clip filled with black and white images, faux-paper cutouts, hand-scrawled lyrics and hearts.

Interestingly, Barrie wrote all five of the songs on Darling in just 24 hours. "It was just one of those days where I was able to pour my feelings onto paper without trying," he said in a statement. "I've always found that my best songs happen without knowing they're coming."
