Winnipeg’s JayWood has announced his forthcoming EP, Some Days, which is set for release on April 23 via Royal Mountain Records and Captured Tracks. As part of the announcement, he’s shared a video for the album’s title track.”
Weaving in and out of indie, funk, and psych-pop, “Some Days” comes packed with a captivating, rollicking instrumental, as JayWood delivers some amazing vocal lines on top. The accompanying video is just as captivating as the track, following a series of motivated individuals, interspersed with shots of them being operated on and eaten by some twisted surgeons.
The EP was originally written back in 2015, as JayWood was transitioning out of a long-term relationship, and struggling with his sense of identity. “It’s been really nice reconnecting with a younger version of myself through this EP, I hope he’s stoked,” JayWood explains.
Watch the video for “Some Days” below.
“I had to write the EP and learn how to record at the same time, which you can definitely hear in the original recordings,” JayWood adds. “The songs were kinda messy, but I just went with the first ideas that came to mind. I made a rule for myself not to go back on anything, because I didn’t have the time to tweak around.”
