Winnipeg’s Living Hour have announced their third LP, Someday is Today. The follow-up to 2019’s Softer Faces will arrive on September 2 via Next Door Records. To accompany the announcement, Living Hour have shared the new single ‘Feelings Meeting’, which features Jay Som’s Melina Duerte, one of the album’s producers. Check it out below, along with the album’s cover art and tracklist.
Songwriter Sam Sarty explained in a statement about the track:
The song is about struggling with internal worlds, habits and daily circumstances. This is one of the first songs I wrote on bass. I play guitar, and it felt really nice to pick up a four-string instrument instead of six. I really enjoy living in lower frequencies. ‘Feelings Meeting’ was so fun to write on bass, I played around with the high G string moving with it as my own voice moved matching notes, and harmonising with it felt so easy. A familiar register.
I like playing huge bass chords in this song at the chorus. It feels powerful and LOUD when playing live! And Melina totally nailed it in making the first chorus absolutely drive itself into my bones. shaking them around and projecting the full feeling I was trying to get across in writing the song.
Duerte added: “I met Living Hour in their hometown where they opened for my partner’s band. I remember instantly connecting and hitting it off with them because they’re all so kind. Shortly after the pandemic hit and then later on in the year, they asked me to do remote production and mixing for a few songs alongside Samur Khouja (Cate Le Bon, John Grant) and Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Liars, Snail Mail). I was so stoked on ‘Feelings Meeting’ because it’s such a headbanger – it was more energetic and rocking than the material they’ve put out in the past. I had a lot of fun manipulating Sam’s vocals into a synth and adding some extra harmonies and guitars.”
