I love the photo that they ended up using, I thought it was really cool.
It was in a Grateful Dead T-shirt and with a really cool fringy vest.
He just kind of kept getting in touch for collaborations, and so I felt it was okay to ask him when we needed a world-weary voice, that he would be the best for the world traveler for the song "Wanderlust."ELLE: Speaking of "Wanderlust," that song seems kind of fitting for you; you've grown up all over the place: Canada, New York, born in India.
EH: Yeah, we're all pretty nomadic, the four of us. And it's actually Nick [Zinner] that I know better than Karen, but we had a loft—I guess it was late `90s, early 2000—we had a loft in Williamsburg.
We've just been playing our first shows of the record, so it's really interesting to see how it mixes with the old material.
It feels like the natural progression of the band, but there's a different tone to this one.
Hug Oo Thunder is righteous but warm, angry but loving, melodic but uncompromising.
And if you’ve ever fallen in love with Broken Social Scene - as many of us have - it is a perfect return that was truly worth the wait.
EH: Yeah, it's the kind of thing you never could have predicted or tried to make happen—it never would've—but he was playing a tribute to Neil Young that we also performed at, and I was introduced to him and I figured he'd just be like, "Oh hi, whatever, random girl," and instead he knew "Gimme Sympathy," the song that we played, and so he said, "Who would you rather be, The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?As the leading lady of the Canadian foursome Metric, Haines supplements the band's heavy guitars and electropop beats with teasing, child-like vocals which, over the years, have addressed various political and social topics.The group's fifth effort, (released this past Tuesday), features the band's classic (and contagious) synth melodies, and, in typical Haines fashion, some less-than-subtle lyrical jabs at the government.Since their inception in the early Aughts, BSS have always pushed sonic boundaries while remaining reverent of a perfect chorus; almost twenty years down the line, Hug Of Thunder sharpens that balance and then some.
The record’s twelve songs refract the band’s varying emotions, methods, and techniques in ways that not only reference their other albums, but surpass them. Hug Of Thunder is everything BSS fans love from the Canadian collective and then some, an album overflowing with glorious open chords, multi-voice harmonies, spacious psychedelia- tinted breakdowns, and more. It is a panoramic, expansive album that manages to be both epic and intimate; and like all things BSS, in troubled times, it offers a serotonin rush of positivity. Every record we make ends up capturing, at least for us, what we feel is happening in the world at the time; It's your personal life, but it's also the life of your friends and family, the city you live in, and world events, so is an idea that I had tossed around for a long time in my writing.
