Montreal-based musician and producer Caila Thompson-Hannant a.k.a. Mozart’s Sister is streaming her sophomore album Field of Love a week ahead of its release date, via Arbutus Records. Field of Love is the follow up to her 2014 debut Being and will, be released February 17th via Arbutus Records.
Mozart’s Sister delights in making glittery, celebratory pop with underlying vulnerability and emotion. Writing for Field of Love began in early 2015. Reliving her childhood love of ‘90s dance pop, Caila wanted to capture the spirit of the era’s pop song – colorful, cartoonish, goofy but always earnest. Throughout the writing process, she maintained only one rule: follow through on every musical desire. The critique could happen later, once the fun was finished. Ditching barriers and prejudice, her aim was to make music everyone was invited to.
“I wrote Field of Love at a point when I truly did feel I was floating in a field of love. Once I got going the songwriting process happened very easily. As the songs came I realized: oh I really like these. There was a naivety to them and I felt like I could really cut loose when writing”.
Mozart’s Sister kicks off her February tour the night before Field of Love’s release in Brooklyn on February 16th. In addition to these tour dates, she will also play Noise Pop in San Francisco and SXSW in Austin.
