Stacey - "First Move" (Independent): We first came across this Toronto chanteuse a year ago, via her superb re-interpretation of '60s pop hit "Build Me Up (Buttercup)."
She returns with a new track, "First Move," and a video that came out this week, and we're equally impressed by this one. It is the title song of an upcoming EP (due Sept. 15), and in a press release Stacey describes the track/video as "A lamenting fantasy, The twilight visions of what could be, Laced with psychedelic luxury, Spiraling slowly in space."
The MuchFACT-funded video has a languid and sensual feel that perfectly complements the song, one that showcases Stacey's pure and dreamy voice. Co-directed by Nicole Powell and Stacey, it was filmed at the elegant and historic Glanmore House.
"First Move" has already generated over 100k Spotify streams and CBC play, so word on this very promising talent is spreading. Her songs have also earned TV synch placements in Lucifer, Orphan Black, MTV Scream, and Degrassi.
Mavis Harris at Nice Marmot PR is handling this one. We're expecting major moves to come.
