Timber Timbre share new album, Sincerely Future Pollution: Stream

Officially out April 7th, but streaming a week in advance, courtesy of NPR

    Canadian gothic folk trio Timber Timbre have returned with their new album, Sincerely, Future Pollution. It’s officially out April 7th via City Slang Records, but is streaming a week in advance courtesy of NPR. Hear it in full below.

    Sincerely, Future Pollution comes three years after the release of their JUNO-nominated 2014 album, Hot Dreams. To hear the band tell it, the album turned out quite differently from how they originally intended. When Timber Timbre entered the recording studio, they envisioned a dance-worthy sound. “I had the idea that we could do something that was fun. Which … we can’t,” shared frontman Taylor Kirk with NPR.

    Instead, Future Pollution ended up reflecting the current political dystopia and disturbing xenophobia exhibited by the current presidential administration. During “Western Questions”, Kirk sings of “International witness protection/ Through mass migration.”

    As Kirk said prior to the album’s release, “When we were recording, the premonition was that the events we saw unfolding were an elaborate hoax. But the mockery made of our power system spawned a lot of dark, dystopic thoughts and ideas.”
