Raleigh’s forthcoming release Powerhouse Bloom was born at the Independent Band Residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, where the band worked with producers Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew and Charles Spearin of Broken Social Scene, along with a different engineer, Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes/Weezer), Graham Lessard (Timber Timbre/Plants and Animals) and Nyles Spencer (Tragically Hip/Broken Social Scene), each day.
The content of Powerhouse Bloom and it’s lyrics come from diverse influences, but RALEIGH’s songs always involve the evolution of the character’s perspective on their situation. The songs are about growth through reflection, and transitional moments in life. It is indie rock, damaged by art, delicate and exposed, but intimately pointed connectivity through song.
The first album single from the album, “Costume Party” (feat. Scott Munro of Preoccupations) was released as a cassingle b/w a cover of Frank Ocean’s “Ivy” in July.
