Josh Mover and The Shakers Releases New Song "When I Steal Your Heart" and New EP "Into a Ghost" Announced
Indie rockers Josh Mover and The Shakers have announced the release of their debut EP titled "Into a Ghost", set for release February 16th 2018. The title track "Into a Ghost" has been released and can be heard via Spotify HERE. While their newest single called "When I Steal Your Heart" can be heard HERE.
When asked about the singles and new music, Josh Mover says "At the time that I wrote “When I Steal Your Heart,” like the other songs on this record, I was trying to come to terms with a relationship that ended; I was also listening to quite a bit of Tom Lehrer. I particularly liked how he subverted the expectations of the genre he played in – singing really dark, often tongue-in cheek lyrics over these poppy, piano arrangements. So when I heard his tune “I Hold Your Hand In Mine” the idea came to me to write an anti-love song from the perspective of a psychopath who’s going to take their lost love’s heart, and sell it on the black market.
The song in no way, shape, or form intends to encourage violence, but if you are ever feeling really down or worthless, it can serve as a good reminder that you’re worth plenty – somewhere out there, someone would pay over $100,000 for your ticker! (I googled that. Apparently that’s what a heart goes for on the black market. What a world!)
For "Into a Ghost", I culled together some good friends and talented Toronto rock alumni to play: Ben Reinhartz (Dilly Dally); Mathew Wronski (The Sulks); Joseph Landau (ex-Formalists), Will Hunter (The Nutrients), and Clara Klein. Mastered by David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene), and recorded and mixed at Union Sound Company by Ian Gomes (Odonis Odonis, Teenanger), this EP was recorded in a whirlwind span of two days this past September, and was largely fueled by Figs Breakfast on Queen East."
The band will be celebrating the release of their EP with a showcase happening February 23rd 2018 at Toronto’s Monarch Tavern.
