Toronto indie outfit, Jaunt, are quickly becoming one of our favourite new acts. The band frequently collaborates with local soul sensation, Charlotte Day Wilson, and honed their craft last year on the brilliant debut release, Chat— the project was so good that we named it one of the best EPs of 2016.
After remaining relatively silent these past few months, Jaunt confirmed they were back this week and blessed us all with a brand new single on SoundCloud. Entitled, “Machined” the song showcases Jaunt’s strong handle on trippy, beautiful, and dreamy sonics, and pairs it with lyrics about anxiety and overthinking things.
Speaking with Earmilk, Jaunt reveals that their inspiration for the song derives from several sources. "'Machined' deals with the reluctant acceptance of the inevitable,” the band’s statement begins. “It’s sort of like recalling a memory you’d like to forget, over-analyzing it to the point of uncertainty. It’s both pretty and jarring, building gradually only to fall apart quickly. We wanted Machined to be jerry-rigged together, pulling from our range of influences with enough collective glue to sound cohesive. It feels focused and refreshing to us."
“Machined” will land on the band’s forthcoming EP of the same which is due out in the near future. In the meantime, you can listen to the awesome new track below via SoundCloud.
