Partner release new single "Gross Secret"

Partner, met while attending Mount Allison University in small town Sackville, New Brunswick, on Canada’s East Coast. Both from even smaller East Coast towns (Lucy – Goose Bay-Happy Valley, Labrador and Josée from Summerside, Prince Edward Island).

The duo played in numerous Sackville bands together over their University years (Yellowteeth, The Mouthbreathers and the aptly named hardcore band Go Get Fucked). Around late 2014 the idea of Partner came to fruition. Influenced by acts as varied as Melissa Etheridge, Ween, kd lang, and Prince, Partner delivers a refreshing and vital twist on a classic, prompting you to re-think what you thought was possible in Rock.

Partner relocated to Windsor, Ontario at the beginning of 2016. After a year of writing, recording, and touring. The duo, will release their debut full-length In Search of Lost Time . Partner is genre-defying and terrifying: part musical act, part teenage diary, and 100% queer.

In addition to guitar heroics and hooks on hooks, one of the main reasons we named Partner a Band To Watch is that their songs are often hilarious. New single “Gross Secret,” is a swaggering rocker that somewhat resembles Veruca Salt covering the White Stripes’ “I’m Finding It Harder To Be A Gentleman,” is one of the funniest. Here’s Partner’s Lucy Niles explaining the premise:

Picture this: your sunglasses have fallen into a toilet full of a stranger’s pee. You have two choices; rinse them off and get on with your life or don’t. I (Lucy) chose the former, and that is one of my gross secrets. For us this is the song that started it all. Please enjoy it for what it is: a celebration of the grossness that unites us.

The song is on Partner’s debut album In Search Of Lost Time, out next month
