Zerbin 'Darling' (album stream)
Published Apr 13, 2015Coming together from across their various Western Canadian home bases, indie outfit Zerbin are set to unveil their latest LP Darling tomorrow (April 14) — but you can stream it at Exclaim! right now, a day early.
The band describe their sound as "melodic symphonic prophetic alternative indie rock music," and though it may be a mouthful to say, it's certainly easier to listen to. The 11-song collection ranges from dancier, indie pop numbers like opener "Real Time Fall" to the twangy, clap-along rock'n'roll of "C'est La Vie" to the slow-building orchestral pop of the title track.
"A lot of the record references relationship or spirituality, as they are lenses that we tend to see through," said Zerbin in a statement about the new material. "Each song became a different brush stroke in an attempt to make a picture of this life, with all its glorious complexity."
It's a diverse mix from the group, who self-produced the album with vintage gear out in a house on Vancouver Island. Now, you can hear the results for yourself.
