DEVON WELSH RELEASES NEW SINGLE/VIDEO “FACES”

Ontario-born artist Devon Welsh released “Faces,” his newest track since 2018’s acclaimed Dream Songs LP.

Stream “Faces” via Spotify, Bandcamp, or SoundCloud.

A staple in Welsh’s live set for some time, “Faces” strengthens the minimalism, poetry, and illumination of Welsh’s best work, complemented by additional synths and sound processing from Nick Schofield and Kyle Jukka, and mixed by Austin Tufts of BRAIDS.

“I feel that there’s a bittersweetness to life,” Welsh says, describing this meditation on love and mortality. “There’s suffering and we know it has to end, but there’s so much tenderness in it nonetheless.” Set in the Wisconsin woods, the black-and-white video for “Faces” highlights the piercing emotionality and deep humanness that remains Welsh’s signature.

In the wake of his 2018 solo album, Dream Songs, Welsh has retreated once more to take stock of his purpose of an artist. Leaving his longtime home of Montreal, the former Majical Cloudz frontman moved to rural Wisconsin to re calibrate still. Recording in a basement studio and embracing a quieter, simpler life, he has worked on his emotional health through meditation and therapy.

His newest music is in ways a product of those introspective focuses: about the ambiguous emotional spaces around love. “Love in every sense has complications, often feels impossible or unreachable, and so many things can get in its way,” says Welsh. “Music has been a great way for me to try to understand that as best as I can.”
