Fast Romantics – Pick It Up [Streaming]

Today, Toronto indie-rock band Fast Romantics dropped their highly anticipated new album called Pick It Up via Postwar Records.

About the album:
Self-produced with additional production and mixing by Montreal’s Marcus Paquin who has worked Arcade Fire, The National and Timber Timbre.
The album is a collection of clever, deeply honest songs that reflect the time in which they were written.
Pick It Up showcases lead vocalist Matthew Angus’ finely-honed artistic vision and songwriting craft.

Packed with infectious melodies that are sure to get stuck in your head for days, and relatable, thought-provoking narratives, Pick It Up explores the dualities we face as humans and the complexity of our emotions.

The title track was inspired by Angus’ lifelong battle with depression and anxiety and acted as a personal pep talk for the singer as he overcame months of crippling depression; “The Rules” addresses childhood bullying and the victimization of marginalized individuals and the triumphant “Hallelujah, What’s It To Ya?” sees Angus, although no longer religious, reflecting on his religious upbringing.


Pick It Up gets:
