Toronto indie pop outfit Only Yours have recently climbed their way onto the Canadian music scene and have picked up some traction since their Canadian Music Week performance. Adding to the excitement, Only Yours have released their debut single “Different”.
With their influences deeply rooted in pop and electronic music, the Toronto band have been working to create a sound that is both fun and something they enjoy. Lead singer Lowell Sostomi explains:
“Writing ‘Different’ was an important step in refining my creative process overall, because I tirelessly worked and reworked the song trying to fix “problems” that didn’t even exist. As a songwriter I find myself constantly striving to make songs “better” and often in doing so, I would make them worse…That’s why I never spend too much time trying to “fix” a song any more — because if it doesn’t come out right the first time, it’s better to move on…”
Lush contemporary electro-pop textures meet in the middle with mid-tempo new wave rhythms, before colliding together for a energetic conclusion. Enjoy the early beginnings of one of Toronto’s latest bands, and connect with them on Facebook.
