Solar Year – “Global Girlfriend”

solar year waverly Solar Year   Global Girlfriend

Amidst an incessant ticking beat and the longing of a distant heart, Montreal’s duo Solar Year, composed of producer Ben Borden and vocalist Davvid Ertel have captured both the sun itself and its worldwide dispersion in their new track “Global Girlfriend.” Vaguely reminiscent of the lapping of the sea and littered with various electronic bits and bleeps that show up like seashells, this song manages to feel like a piece of nature even though it was created by digital and electronic means.

If they sound familiar, it’s because last year’s Grimes-featuring song “Brotherhood” evoked a wave of interest last summer. The pair will be re-releasing an updated version of their album Waverly this year on June 25 on the DC/Brooklyn label Ceremony Recordings.
