When it comes to music there’s few things I love more than cool, interesting sounds and this track definitely ticks that box for me. The beautiful acoustic approach the trio took to this classic song by Flume (Featuring Tove Lo) with guitars and violins is something very different to what we usually hear in the EDM scene at True Sound. Say It is an amazing new debut single for Amity Rising, Vancouver’s most captivating acoustic trio and they really have pulled out all the stops to produce something so different with the lovely warm vocals, classical instruments and the pure skill to pull it all together so well. The three all come from very different backgrounds in music which is what I think makes this track so unique and such an amazing listener experience. I know if this track is anything to go by they’re absolutely a force to be reckoned with! Can’t wait to hear more! Check out the track below!
Amity Rising are an acoustic trio who all come from diverse music backgrounds. M & Morgan started working together to collaborate on a DJ set including live violin and live vocals. During this process, they quickly realised that guitar chords were needed and so Justin was invited to join the project. After the set, we had a strong friendship and strong desire to continue working together. This resulted in our unique combination of warm vocals, hand-picked guitar, and classical violin.
