FLAUNT PREMIERE | Anemone's New Single "Sunshine (Back To The Start)"

by Agathe Pinard

Anemone gives off such a solar energy at first listen that you’d expect them to come from nowhere else but sunny California. The band is actually from Montréal and is reminiscent of bands like Allah-Las, Tame Impala or even La Femme. Anemone is set to release their debut album, Beat My Distance, early next year with Luminelle Records, the label founded by Chris from Gorilla vs Bear. Beat My Distance promises us a  dreamy psychedelic ride, hopping through genres and  moods with exuberance. In the midst of all the swirly shoegaze guitars and krautrock beats,  Anemone’s songs are anchored by Chloé Soldevila’s voice, always catchy and direct,  powerful enough to cut through the mix and carry the song. 

Anemone is the brainchild of Soldevila, a Montréal native, but the project officially began when Soldevila met Zachary Irving at a show. Around the same time, Soldevila and Miles Dupire-Gagnon met at a bar, and he introduced her to Gabriel Lambert. The musical connection was immediate, and the four began working on songs together soon after. Samuel Gemme was a friend and sound engineer who worked on their recordings, spending so much time in the studio with them that he eventually joined the band. The final lineup of Anemone was set.

While waiting for the release of the full album, here is a little taste of Anemone’s Beat My Distance with this first single: “Sunshine (Back To The Start)”, perfect to accompany this Indian Summer.

You can already preorder Beat My Distance here.
