Calgary indie rockers The Northern Coast have shared a free stream of ‘Blindside’, the second single from their debut album The Great Divide, out on March 22.
Breaking up is a central theme in the album as vocalist Arron Crook, guitarist Hunter Hansen and producer Josh Rob Gwilliam were all experiencing long-term relationships coming to an end.
It’s something that is especially obvious in both ‘Blindside’ and the first single ‘Savage’.
“Our first single ’Savage’ really represents the apathy in looking back, and trying to find some understanding,” Crook said in a press release. “‘Blindside’ is less about one particular experience and is kind of a commentary on modern love and its shortcomings. There was a moment in the studio where we were all thinking, ‘what are the odds that three humans are working on one of hundreds of albums across the country and are in the same spot in their love lives’, but I mean you see it all around. Maybe it’s just coincidence, maybe it’s the moon, ya know? That’s what the album title really means. There seems to be a great divide with people, places, and hearts these days not a lot of cohesion.”
