This week Montreal duo Solar Year release their much anticipated debut record Waverly available now for a limited vinyl run and digitally through Ceremony (US) / Splendour (EU). Labeled as a "re-release" of an album that was quietly released in limited quantities during summer 2012 in Montreal. As an album and a project striving to set itself apart from the status quo, Solar Year returned to Waverly in late 2012 to give the album a new look and fresh perspective they had felt was lacking last summer. The result pushed Solar Year into a new level of artistic freedom and creativity -- Waverly will now be presented as a revamped experience entirely re-mastered, newly mixed, and re-sequenced with updates on several tracks matched with the addition of new material.
Alongside the record release, Solar Year also unleashed their transcendent new video for "Global Girlfriend" single today directed by Allie Avital Tsypin of Brooklyn-based collective BANGS. The band describes the concept behind the video as" essentially a series of “paintings” that explore sacred spaces, death, relaxation, and ideas of paradise" the end result landing in the surreal.
