Fouth Album Names Out August 21st Via Kingfisher Bluez.
Vancouver based fuzzy pop quartet Thee AHs have shared ‘John’ from their forthcoming fourth album Names, which is due for release on August 21st via Kingfisher Bluez. ‘John’ is the first track to be released from an album which sports a track list in which every song is named after a real life person.
The album was recorded in singer-guitarist Davina Shell’s parents’ basement with Jay Arner helming the sessions. Overdubs were then added at Arner’s apartment. This is the group’s first record to feature Dan On, who replaced former bassist Ridley Bishop. Apparently, he has pushed the group in a more direct and pop orientated direction. On wrote three tracks for the album, including ‘Andrew’, which he had previously released with his synth pop project Adanac. Listen to that below.
In relation to the album, Shell explains, “I often write songs about people, so when I am in the demo stage, before I come up with a proper title, I just name the song after the person. Even though it’s a bit nerve-wracking to have three different songs named after three different ex-girlfriends, it saves some time explaining who the song is about.”
