Adam here with my DJ pick of the week from Montreal’s Leif Vollebekk. “Hot Tears” is the first single off his upcoming album, New Ways, out Nov. 1 via Secret City Records.
Of the track, Vollebekk says it was “written when my senses were much more focused and I saw colours much more vividly. The sky often looked like it could have easily been pulled from scenes of [Terrence Malick’s] The Tree of Life. It was the last song I wrote for the record. It was all recorded live: vocals, drums and piano. I wanted this song to sound as hot and rough as possible and make the lyrics fight their way through.”
Listen to “Hot Tears” below and let us know what you think.
