Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist and arranger, Les Cooper, is sharing “Best Of You,” the latest single taken from his debut solo album, Noise, out on May 20th.
Conceived in a parking lot ahead of a therapy session, “Best Of You” is a somber and searching piece of downtempo indie which weaves layers of keys, vocals, and guitars amid a desire to feel secure: “And the world pulls you ‘round, and the sky holds you down to the ground.”
“I think that getting advice from people that you are close with can be a tricky thing to navigate. It’s tempting to steer toward what feels safe or comfortable. An objective point of view from someone who isn’t emotionally invested is invaluable,” Cooper explains of the song’s inspiration.
