Toronto-based alternative “soul brood” band, King Cardiac is back with a new video for their track “Amsterdam”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Amsterdam” recounts the colourful shift in perspective that can only be provided by a psychedelic wandering through an unfamiliar city. It captures the wonky vibrations of the city with a relentless, driving rhythm, flighty flutes and raging horn lines.
The track features guest musicians Anh Phung on flute and Kaelin Murphy on Trumpet, in addition to permanent members Gabriel DeSantis, Paul Metcalfe, Sam Petite, Tom Richards and Lowell Whitty.
The video is equally kaleidoscopic and crosses the line into playful absurdity as band leader, Gabriel DeSantis finds himself in a city-wide dance off with himself.
“Amsterdam” is the second single off the band’s upcoming debut record, scheduled for release in spring of 2021. The record was recorded at The Rooster Studio in Toronto with engineer, Don Kerr (Bahamas, Ron Sexsmith) at The Helm.
Bloodlines was produced by DeSantis and Kerr and mastered by Grammy nominee and Juno and Polaris Prize winner, Philip Shaw Bova (Feist, Lido Piementa, Andy Shauf).
