“not the first to blend indie rock and country music, but he may just be one of the best – a timeless quality reminiscent of George Harrison or Gram Parsons” – EXCLAIM!

Hand Drawn Dracula is pleased to release the debut solo album, ON ARRIVAL, by KYLE EDWARD CONNOLLY. “Get Me Tomorrow” radio premiere on FEBRUARY 14th via THE STROMBO SHOW / CBC MUSIC. The video, directed by Jordan Allen, premiere via AMERICAN SONGWRITER and EXCLAIM!

““Get Me Tomorrow” is a vibrant and warm embodiment of the modern folk-rock sound. Built over a poppy backbeat, the blend of strummed-acoustics, piano fills and twangy guitar licks serves as the perfect backdrop for Connolly’s fuzzy, Dylan-esque vocals.” – AMERICAN SONGWRITER

“If I had to pick one song to show to someone and say ‘This is how we sound now,’ I think that encapsulates it best.” – Robyn Phillips

MICHAEL PETER OLSEN released “7 Days” today, exclusively via Bandcamp, off his upcoming debut album, Yearning Flow, out this Friday January 15 via Hand Drawn Dracula. Additionally, Olsen announced a livestream performance the evening of the 15th at 8pm EST via YouTube Live, featuring an opening set by Zoon. Yearning Flow STREAM // ORDER VINYL

“‘7 Days’ is a piece for Modular Synth and Electric Cello featuring Film and Television composer Todor Kobakov. An expansive exploration of sonic landscape and mood, ‘7 Days’ evokes contemporary electronic composition of the 1960s and 70s.” – Michael Peter Olsen

NEW! Jesse talks candidly with EXCLAIM! and explores cancer battle in their powerful new “Hunter” video by PRAISES.

About The Video: Praises “Hunter” : The whole cancer journey in video.
“This is the scan set from the discovery of cancer to the eradication of cancer. Jesse Crowe had access to all of their CT and MRI scans, and reached out to see if I might be able to animate them together into a full length video. It was such a neat idea, I couldn’t resist seeing what sort of twisted imagery would come out of editing them together. The scans are very alive on their own, but when you put them to music they come to life in a much different way; it becomes like a dance, as if Jesse’s body is naturally reacting to the music without actually hearing it. It’s their core, and the result is hypnotic and jarring, a reminder of how alive we really are.” – Jordan Allen (director)

EP THREE is available now on all streaming platforms and via the HDD STORE.

MICHAEL PETER OLSEN‘s debut album, Yearning Flow, is set to arrive January 15, 2021 via Hand Drawn Dracula // PRE-SAVE / PRE-ORDER VINYL.

Having already released two singles in 2020, Olsen today follows with “Cloud Parade,” the first featured on Yearning Flow. The track is accompanied by a video featuring choreography from Mateo Gallindo-Torres and directed by Adrienne McLaren. It was named an Official Selection at this year’s Toronto International Short Film Festival in September.

Showcasing electric cello, in ambient, avant-garde influenced compositions, Olsen’s music transports the listener through a sound world of electronically altered and acoustic performance: what Olsen calls Post-Cello. For Yearning Flow, Olsen welcomed award winning film composer Todor Kobakov, experimental dance music artist Strange Robotix, bassist Brandon Lim (Yamataka Sonic Titan, HSY), and singer-songwriter Merival to collaborate on the project.

Michael Peter Olsen is a classically trained musician originally from British Columbia, Canada and a longtime resident of Toronto. A GRAMMY-nominated songwriter, Olsen has spent the past 25 years lending his talents to works by The Hidden Cameras, Drake, Arcade Fire, Haim, Owen Pallet, and Tiesto, while joining artists live on stage, such as Holy Fuck, Zaki Ibrahim, Great Lake Swimmers, The Constantines, Kevin Hearn, Rheostatics, The Blow, Sarah Slean and Mocky.

NAILBITER “Pinned” video premiere via Berlin’s THE BRVTALIST. Directed by Christopher Mills (Leonard Cohen, Interpol, The Cure) and taken from Nailbiter’s latest Hand Drawn Dracula release BRACE.

Available via the HDD Store and on all streaming platforms.
