Alternative hip-hop band Pearls & Bones have shared a new track called “400 Sq. Ft.,” premiering now on Indie88.
Marking the first single from their forthcoming record, “400 Sq. Ft.” sees the band singing of finding beauty in cold spaces, trying to light up dark situations. The high-octaine ballad is all about a relatable Toronto living situation.
“Paying exorbitant rent for a mismanaged, tiny apartment is a uniquely Torontonian experience. There was no view in the basement apartment that our vocalist Jake shared with his partner, yet they made the most of the space and filled it with life,” Pearls & Bones explain. “Our new song, ‘400 Sq. Ft.,’ is a reflection on those underground days, where nearly everything went wrong, from frozen, un-insulated pipes to black mould. While these unresolved issues were piling up, the rent was also climbing in true Toronto fashion. Despite all this, Jake and his partner decked the space out with art, two pet snakes, and the scent of incredible food from back-to-back cook ups.”
