Bernice – Underneath My Toe [Listen]

Today, Toronto’s Bernice dropped the track Underneath My Toe.
The leading single is taken from their upcoming album Crusin’ which comes out on April 23, 2023 via Telephone Explosion.
A wonderful dreamy pop tune that makes want to float in the clouds.

About the track by Robin:
“Underneath My Toe”, was one of the first pieces developed under this theme, and finds the group at their most graceful and direct. Beginning with songwriter/vocalist Robin Dann singing simply ‘Hi / I miss you all the time’, the composition proceeds to shift subtly between soft jazz balladry and low-bit funk, revelling in the intimate beauty of a long-time-no-see letter to a dear old friend. It’s a neat encapsulation of the magic of Bernice in this more intimate mode. The rec room funk of Mario Kart 64 bent in a rich expression of emotion.

“We were really missing our friend Devon Sproule. We were missing a lot of friends back when we wrote this album. Thom and I sat down and asked ourselves what we wanted to say to her, what does any friend want to say to their pal who’s far away? Toe became the balm for the missing feeling, and when we shared it with her, she (as usual) distilled the feeling perfectly, saying “It feels like two important things smooshed together: how complicated it feels to be a person, and to live with other people, in a house or a city…and then how simple love can feel, like love from an animal friend, or how it feels to be connected to the Earth.”
