Donna Blue releases their brand new 7” EP today. The second self-titled EP features three songs: the cheeky French single ‘1 2 3’, the dreamy ‘Get Away’ and the all new ‘Arlene’s’, which is about a rendez-vous in another time and place. It mesmerizes you into believing that you will get to meet someone you feel you’ve known through many different dimensions. The new song 'Arlene's' comes with a beautiful video, which has been premiered earlier today on Clash Magazine (UK).
New song ‘Arlene’s’ also came with a stunning video, made by Donna Blue themselves, is their own version of a 70s sci fi cult movie. It zooms in on the idea of different dimensions than the one we are in. How we don’t know if ours is the only one, if maybe we are just tiny beings in a raindrop amongst many other raindrops. And how, in all of this, this gigantic overwhelming thought experiment, you can still find someone you feel like you want to float through space and time with. Watch it here.

Happy release day! 'Open Water' by The Fire Harvest is out today on Snowstar Records and Subroutine Records.
For ‘Open Water’ they entered the studio with Michael Feuerstack. The singer-songwriter and producer from Montreal offered the chance to help capture the next step in their sound within the familiarity of their own environment and studio while holding on to their principle of recording ‘live’. “For us the recordings are a documentation of a certain musical period. Therefore we find it important that the dynamics of rehearsing and performing can be heard in the resulting recordings: ‘this is where we stand and what we can do.” Thus singer/guitarist Gerben Houwer.
