Hailing from Toronto is Omhouse - an art-rock group formed by Steven Foster (Doldrums, Snowblink, Moon King) that first emerged as a solo project of Foster's who, after his band's van broke down, had to take a three-day bus ride from Greenville, Texas to Toronto with no phone or books to keep him entertained. The solitary trip proved to be fruitful since by the time he arrived home he had a whole bunch of new material formed in his head.

Omhouse's new single 'Nursery' - which is set to be released on May 30th (Steven Foster's birthday) - is a melodic and exquisite pop-ish tune with unexpected turns and tachycardiac riffs. A track we're extremely happy to premiere today.

"'Nursery is about making careless mistakes and how shame can make you feel like a child again, hence the music going back and forth between a playful feeling and a stormy, foreboding one," he explains. "It’s the only song I’ve ever written by starting with a drum groove. I was messing around with a new electronic setup for another band I play drums in, and while working on those sounds came up with this unusual 12/8 groove that sounded like a broken shuffle. Originally it was to be a mostly electronic production, and the demo had multiple layers of electronic drums. When I brought the song to the band, Evan Cartwright spent a long time tweaking the beat to adapt it to live drums and ended up with something very different that feels fresh but also natural. I love hearing what Evan creates in bands like Tasseomancy and Eucalyptus, and Nursery shows off how unique his approach is."
