Today, rising Canadian producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, French Braids returns to the dance scene with his first original single of 2021 titled “Shady” out now via Armada Music.
“Shady” follows French Braids’ highly successful 6 track EP, “Breathe In” and is the result of a one hour video chat call with vocalist Dom as they reminisce about past relationships over a glass of wine. The track beautifully conveys the ever relatable wanting of real and unconditional love from our partners. “Shady” couples a light hearted production with gorgeous lo-fi guitar work, a lush blend of soulful ambient sounds and airy sultry vocals.
French Braids mentions, “The story came together as Dom McAllister and I sipped wine over the screen and exchanged stories about romantic experiences”, French Braids says. “Dom told a story about an encounter he had with a partner who was communicating in an elusive and shady manner, which led to the title of the song. We wanted the track to be the perfect blend of vintage bossa nova and modern chill electronic music, and we got there by recording lo-fi guitars through our iPhones and sampling a toy woodblock and turning it into the lead instrument for the track. We wanted to make a lush tapestry of sounds you could put on your headphones and get lost in. Dom’s sultry R&B vocals were the perfect match for the chilled-out alternative electronic production.”
It’s a song that you cannot help but get completely lost in. Whether you are sitting by the pool, taking a long walk or enjoying a relaxing evening with your significant other.
About French Braids:
Sean Fischer’s production name French Braids makes perfect sense for an electronic artist known for weaving styles and genres together. In addition to the well over 15 million streams worldwide under this moniker, Fischer’s talents can also be heard on hundreds of syncs ranging from Grey’s Anatomy to Toyota, Walmart, Disney, Air Canada and McDonalds. Having fallen for electronic music, the Toronto-born beat-maker, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has also branched out into remixes for an international array of artists, including Grammy-nominated Australian trio Mansionair, South African superstar Sketchy Bongo, Swedish pop icon Zara Larsson and rising Canadian club crooner Virginia to Vegas.
