Canadian pop-rock band, Marianas Trench are beginning to make big waves over here, in the UK.
With a massive fanbase in their home-country (Canada), frontman Josh Ramsay having received a Grammy nomination in 2013 for co-writing and producing Carly Rae Jepsen‘s ‘Call Me Maybe’ and following a small sold out tour last summer, the band have announced a full UK tour (starting in May 2017) and new UK single, ‘Who Do You Love’. The song is impeccably produced and the vocal harmonies at the beginning of the track are just immense. It’s a truly transcendent track that was just beginning to be a #FeelGoodFriday song, the moment I heard it.
I’m hoping to try and catch the band at the Brighton date of their upcoming tour – hopefully see some of you guys there 🙂
For the new UK single ‘Who Do You Love’, the band decided against making a traditional music video, instead choosing to use the funds to make a difference and inspire others to go out and do some good. Some of the situations included sharing funds with individuals to more elaborate, pay-it-forward-style scenarios that benefit groups of people. The scenarios themselves were pre-arranged but the reactions weren’t, leading to honest, authentic and heart-warming reactions from everyone involved. Make sure you watch the video below.

‘Run Away With Me’ is one of the latest offerings from Carly Rae Jepsen. I also think having released this song and ‘I Really Like You’, she has well and truly established herself as not just “the Call Me Maybe singer.”
I particularly fell in love with this song due to its use of the saxophone in quite a haunting way, with this distorted effect on it.
I think the beat of the song is so intensely uplifting it just makes me feel quite euphoric – there really is no other way to describe it, than “feel-good”. It’s synthpop at its utter best.
The music video is cool too – it features Jepsen doing various fun things in London, Dublin, Paris, Tokyo, New York and Toronto.
What do you think of Carly’s latest release? Have you got a #FeelGoodFriday song to share with us? Please share on your social medias.
