I know, I know...how very Nova Nova Scotia of me. Originally Sheepmark had planned to withdraw from the contest after edition 20 but, by special request of this edition's host, have applied one last time. This is the first time I have promoted an entry of mine in ages; I want to try and separate this song from what has gone before - alternatively you could view this as a sort of 'unofficial' entry. I haven't really deliberated or laboured over whether to send this song - I just did. My entry is performed and written by an American band from New York. They focused on the lyrics and let the music and production come naturally afterward, purely as a form of accompaniment. The song is a mixture of dream pop, shoe gaze and a blend of electronic elements which reminded me of some of my favourite musical acts most notably Bat For Lashes, My Bloody Valentine and Beach House. It has one of the most amazing music videos I have seen for quite a while so I implore you to watch it fully and not just skip over it if at first you don't like it. All in all, I'd say that my entry is the sound of the dull throb of heartache, which I'm sure most of us here have experienced. Best wishes and good luck to everyone competing in this edition!
