WATCH/SHARE Video For 3rd Single ‘Coda’ HERE
Vancouver musician Kele Fleming is excited to announce the release of ‘Coda’, the 3rd single from her new album The Song I’ll Write For My Whole Life which is out on October 2nd.
‘Coda’ is a song that looks to find light in the darkness, making it a perfect track for these troubled pandemic times. The video was filmed by documentary filmmaker Paulina Ortleib at Vancouver’s The Wise Hall just a few days before the pandemic lockdown in the city.
“‘Coda’ is a hopeful song despite the lyrics giving you a punch in the gut,” says Kele Fleming. “I wrote the song to be really big music sonically while being an intimate song lyrically. The banjitar and rhythmic yearning embedded in the melody give the song an upbeat, folksy Sesame Street singalong feel. At the same time, the lyrics shine a spotlight on some of the darker elements of being alive in this time – loss of spirit and connection, addiction to technology and living daily nightmares. It’s a song of binaries and, ultimately, intends to create a space beyond simply hope or despair, addiction or connection.”
Recorded live off the floor at Vancouver’s Warehouse Studio with Juno-recognized engineer and producer, Sheldon Zaharko, Kele Fleming’s 4th album The Song I’ll Write For My Whole Life features songs about the environment, modern dislocation, coming of age as a queer person, and the lives of women. The 1st single from the new album ‘Vanishing of Bees’, released in 2019, helped to raise money for the David Suzuki Foundations’s Butterflyway Project.
Kele Fleming’s music career began in the early 90s when she formed Vancouver indie pop group Hazel Motes. The band, along with acts like Lava Hay and the Grapes of Wrath, helped define the city’s sound for that era.
‘Coda’ is out now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide. For more information, please visit: https://tinforest.com/
