“SONG FOR EWE” is the feature where artists & music people beloved by VELVET SHEEP choose an obscure song they’ve been listening to that day. Today’s guest is the singer of new Canadian trio Basement Revolver who’ve just released their debut album “Heavy Eyes”. Like Warpaint on a soiree with Besnard Lakes or Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast fronting 4AD band Swallow it’s an all-enveloping mist of sawing guitars and soaring lyrics from the plaintive yet superlative Chrisy Hurn

After a debut single “Johnny” in 2016, Basement Revolver were signed to Memphis Industries imprint Fear Of Missing Out, releasing the “Basement Revolver” EP and the “Agatha” EP in 2017. They’ve returned to their local studio TAPE to work with producers Adam Bentley & Jordan Mitchell on their first full-length “Heavy Eyes”. Here’s a tantalising bit more of it…

and some more should “Baby” have piqued your interest…

But what music gets Chrisy going? Without further ado, this is her delicately poised “song for ewe”…

“Manchester Orchestra – The Gold (Phoebe Bridgers Version)
Lately I have been obsessed with this cover. I don’t typically love covers, but occasionally there is one that comes along that I can’t let go of. I guess it is not that obscure or weird, but it is something that I am very into…”
