Exodus” was written after an early spring walk in Toronto’s mysterious Don Valley – one of my favorite places and one of few that still feels somewhat haunted. I saw no one that day, but the leafless trees afforded little cover for traces of human occupation.

The song, with its slow atmospheric build and sombre lyrics, is a reflection on a city undergoing massive change: influxes and exoduses; appropriations and dispossessions, caused by intentions that range from the benevolent to the unkind.

A love letter to a city that is becoming unrecognizable to itself, set against the promise and melancholy of spring. The sonic textures aim to capture something of the scale and beauty of the valley in the area below the Bloor Viaduct. – Jonathan Tyrrell

Went out drifting eastbound on the viaduct in the rain,
High above the valley in the belly of a train,
Now I’m standing still on Dundas, the sun in my eyes,
I am faithless anonymous as the exodus passes by

New full-length album AVALON coming to you JULY 10 explores Toronto’s psychogeography through themes of social upheaval, love and loss, economic collapse, exile and mid-life crisis.
