Basic Nature - promo

Fresh off a performance from Canadian Music Week, Basic Nature will be stopping in Ottawa tonight (May 10th) as part of their cross Canada tour at Black Squirrel Books & Café.

They recently debuted their new single Love Won’t Always Be There which will be included on their first full-length album to be released later this year. You can check out the track at the end of this post.

Claire Bones and Lizzy Burt formed Basic Nature in 2014 amidst one of the coldest winters Winnipeg had to offer in decades. Their passion for songwriting, sound and craft-making brought them together to complete the warm, lush and distorted songs that make up their debut 6-song EP Circles & Lines (Sundowning Records/Dub Dutch Picnic) released in May 2015. The EP received much critical acclaim in Canada and was selected for multiple year-end favourite lists including: Winnipeg Free Press, BeatRoute and Mixtape Magazine.

Basic Nature cite Slowdive’s album Souvlaki as the main musical influence for their EP Circles & Lines, however, it does not drive the sound they create. In fact, their upcoming full-length album will be taking the duo in an slightly edgier direction and Love Won’t Always Be There is just a taste of what’s to come.

“We are so excited to finally share this song,” said Lizzy Burt. “There is a real blissful melancholy that comes with performing it, the song kind of acts as a release of pent up energy bringing relief in the best way, and we want to share that. It comes from a realization that even at our lowest points in life, we may not find what we think we are looking for. And that’s okay, because we can know that deep inside ourselves we have everything we need.”

Also performing will be Ottawa’s Baberaham Lincoln.

The doors open at 9pm and tickets are only $5.
