Timber Timbre previews new album ahead of release

Today, Timber Timbre are streaming their upcoming fourth album, Sincerely, Future Pollution, ahead of its release date. The album is available to stream courtesy of CBC Music and hits record stores April 7th via Arts & Crafts.

On Sincerely, Future Pollution, the band – Taylor Kirk, Mathieu Charbonneau, and Simon Trottier, with drummer Olivier Fairfield – coats the stark, sensual sound of 2014’s Polaris Music Prize Short-Listed and JUNO Award nominated album Hot Dreams in an oil-black rainbow of municipal grime. It is the cinema of a dizzying dystopia, rattled by the science fiction of this bluntly nonfictional time.

Stream Sincerely, Future Pollution via CBC Music.

For the recording, the band travelled to La Frette chateau outside Paris, where they looked to the studio’s array of archetypal synthesizers for the flesh of the songs. Be it the freedom of recording abroad, or the revelation of these unexplored instruments, Timber Timbre found a release from artistic constriction and created its most daring work yet. A blend of the album’s mid-apocalyptic setting and its idyllic recording, Sincerely, Future Pollution is a romance of neoteric machines and dark, futuristic hues: with promise as beautiful as it is unsettling.

Wresting sincerity from abstraction, Kirk submits to the cycle of self-obsession at the album’s core. Sincerely, Future Pollution is Timber Timbre’s document of this generation’s degeneration and disarray. With Kirk as narrator, a party to the play, we get caught in the folly of the echo chamber, awed by the contrast of this gothic modern age.

Timber Timbre will embark on a North American tour this spring, beginning on April 28, with stops in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Montreal and Field Trip in Toronto. Full tour dates can be found below.
