“an intriguing ambience that meshes disco with post-punk, and Rollie Pemberton’s feature makes it even more eclectic” – STEREOGUM
Radio premiere via THE STROMBO SHOW // Video via: NICHE MUSIC, THE INDIE MACHINE, CIRCUIT SWEET, SOME PARTY, BIZZARRE, SPILL, EXCLAIM, INDIE88, STEREOGUM
Written, recorded and mixed in 8 days, Only Up finds Korody enlisting a whirlwind of performances from Tess Parks, Cadence Weapon and an array of the Toronto music scene, including members of Orville Peck, Tallies, Vallens, Zoon, Sauna, Fake Palms, Rapport, Praises, Civic TV, Moon King, Blonde Elvis, For Jane, Ducks Ltd, TOPS and Broken Social Scene. The record sees Korody digging through and channeling three decades of anthemic British bands, from the angular guitars of late 70’s post-punk (Gang Of Four, Wire), to the lush gloom of 80’s electro-pop (Tears for Fears, OMD), with the dance floor psychedelia of the Manchester sound (Primal Scream, Happy Mondays), and through the late ’90s and early 2000s post-punk/new wave revivalists, Only Up celebrates it’s sound cathartically.
