Influenced by the likes of Broods, CHVRCHES and the Cure, the guitarist notes,”This song is definitely a perfect blend of all the genres we dabble in and it’s so much more in-your-face than anything else we’ve written so far”.

Adrian Underhill releases Cruel. Produced by Kindness (Robyn, Solange, Blood Orange), his 10 song debut album will drop later in the year. Adrian grew up Vancouver, moved to Montreal and then Toronto, spent time in rock bands, before moving in a 70s songwriter vibe combined with a more modern production style & sound.
Underhill notes, “On ‘Cruel’, I was lucky to have Damon Riddick (DāM-FunK) on drums, Keith Eaddy on bass and Blue May on guitar with those perfectly placed guitar licks. I love how the live drums and bass sit overtop of the samples and drum machine giving the track a unique rhythmic backdrop that keeps pushing you forwards.” Check out the latest track Cruel.

First Move was produced by Derek Hoffman (Ralph The Elwins) and Alan Day (Four Year Strong), who discovered STACEY on Instagram.
The indie pop songstress notes, “Alan found my video of me singing First Move in my bedroom in his Instagram explore feed.

We got together a few months later to make the rest of the EP.
