Snowday 'Evoke' (EP stream)

Snowday 'Evoke' (EP stream)
Today is a Snowday! No, you don't get the day off work or school, but you do get to hear a new EP from the chilled-out Toronto electronic duo. Evoke is out next week through Hybridity Music, and Exclaim has the premiere ahead of time.

The duo of Cam Sloan and Chad Skinner made this EP after having expanded to a larger studio space, and they took advantage of having a bigger instrumental setup. Opener "Ceremony" begins the five-song collection with a chilly electric piano jam, while "Detour" goes in an electro-classical direction with violin, the title cut is built around ultra-sparse ambient piano motifs, "Patterns" boasts smooth grooves, and "Her Day Ended Slowly" finishes the EP with soft, pillowy drones.

Hear the whole collection below before it officially arrives on September 18.

Snowday will play the Harvest Festival in Burk's Falls, ON, on September 19.
