There is so much Canadian talent that I can honestly sit on this computer and blog for days at a time. I discovered Brendan Philip on 88 Days of Fortune mixtape which is a collective of talented Toronto artists. Brendan’s song Wait really caught my ear, I had it on repeat, played it on The Come Up Show and wanted to hear music from this artist. I checked out his website and it brought me to the Song of Songs EP. Check out the description below of what the EP is about and stream the EP on bandcamp and download link is also available.
The debut EP from Brendan Philip takes its name from one the oldest most well-regarded and controversial books of all time, the bible. Song of Songs is a particularly enigmatic collection of prose in the bible dealing with very romantic sentiments between two unknown lovers; interesting for the Bible, that often mulls over anything remotely intimate let alone goes into such details as this particular section. For Brendan Philip, this is a short suite of pieces featuring songs like Reflection, a minimal piece only two and half minutes long, but fits so much clarity in a short breath; and the lead single ‘Harvest Moon’, a cover of one Canada’s most revered singer/songwriters, Neil Young, with a BP twist. With production from local talents like Quest, Shane Tone and Brendan Philip himself, this EP is a most appropriate introduction to Brendan Philip, one of Toronto’s free spirited, off kilter but all together beautiful artists to be treasured.
