Indie-folk duo Post Script, who recently released their brand new EP The Light I Can’t Block Out, are back with a brand new live performance video for the album’s lead track “Dead Flowers”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“We tracked this version of Dead Flowers at Baldwin Street Sound on a Sunday night in June,” says the band. “We had just played a gig in Toronto, so we headed to the studio right after the show and tracked this version sometime between 11pm-1am. It was a whirlwind, but lots of fun to track off the floor like that!”
A five-track collection, The Light I Can’t Block Out represents the realities and demons that individuals often face throughout life and can’t ignore. But as you make your way through the EP, listeners will recognize one common theme – there is ultimately a light at the end of every hardship endured. From the emotional opening track ‘Lights’ to the poppy “Dead Flowers” and culminating with the pleading “I’m Trying” the thread that ties each of the five tracks is one of optimism and coming out the other side.
Winners of Alternative Recording of the Year at the 2016 Edmonton Music Awards and shortlisted for the Edmonton Music Prize, Post Script has proven that vintage persuasion can also be innovative. Trusting the art first and foremost has led them to stages from Canmore (Folk Music Festival) to the Winter Lights Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland and many intimate and vaulted venues in between. Their collaboration, described as “maybe the most gorgeous pieces of melancholia I have heard this year.” compels them forward with stalwart battered hearts into the beckoning unknown.
