Bernice – Groove Elation [Listen]

Today Toronto’s Bernice dropped the new single called Groove Elation which is their first new material in three years.
The track is taken from their upcoming album Eau de Bonjourno which comes out on March 5, 2021 via Telephone Explosion for Canada and figureight records for EU/UK.
As the song title suggest, it is a nice dreamy and groovy experimental pop tune.


About the song:
Eau de Bonjourno, according to Dann, “openly plays with the shape of a pop song,” drawing on the band members’ backgrounds in jazz, subverting rhythmic formulas, and resting in grooves that sit just outside of predictable. Instead of letting instruments take extended solos, the tone is set on opener “Groove Elation” with brief blurts of synthesized sax, patient passages of space, or clusters of beats, tenderly held together by Dann and Williams’ intimate vocals.

“Think of this song as a ripple through many decades of a life,” Dann says. “A silver goblet shines on pink woolen stripes. Maybe this is enough! Maybe we have all that we need to groove. Whether you slept well, stayed up, spoke up or stayed quiet, you’re here now and we should ‘groove it for sure’. Let us take you there: floating on the surface of a loving feeling.”

Groove Elation gets:
/10.
