For me, music is more than just art. Music is more of a force, able to stir one's emotions, awaken one's senses, and unite people under a common denominator. It is an essential part to my life.

We Were Lovers
The last time the Saskatoon duo We Were Lovers released anything more than a single was back in October of 2010 when they put out the self-titled We Were Lovers EP. The cast involved in the production of it was impressive; Chris Coady, who has worked with Beach House, Grizzly Bear, and TV On the Radio, produced and engineered it while mastering was completed by Joe Laporta, who has paired with The Walkmen and Vampire Weekend prior. They've also toured, being showcased at SXSW and NXNE, and have reached both sides of the continent, playing in San Diego as well as New York City. So...where have they been since that fateful October? Answer, prepping their new album Pyramids by releasing a new (and free!) single called "Islands". The song is adorned in beautifully crafted synths and wrapped together with stunning vocals from lead Elsa Gebremichael. It's still not clear when Pyramids will be released, but this tease from We Were Lovers is making me anxious to find out. Have a listen to it below with a download available at SoundCloud or Bandcamp, whichever you prefer. To keep up to date, hit the ol' like button on their Facebook.
