Canada’s Frontperson release “Young Love”, which details the uncertain yet exhilarating feelings that arise in the early stages of a relationship, as Kathryn Calder explains:

“‘Young Love’ was one of the last things we finished. It was kind of tricky to get right because it is a delicate song. Lyrically, I was trying to capture the feeling of meeting someone and those first days when everything is kind of unsettled but yet you also know it’s the right thing. I remember the final glue to the song – when it felt like we had figured it out – was when Mark and I played our guitars together into one microphone, inspired by an early Leonard Cohen kind of sound. There was something kind of lo-fi about playing the song that way that really worked.”

Frontperson are: Kathryn Calder, Mark Andrew Hamilton, with Melissa McWilliams, Jen Sévertson, Clea Foofat, Foon Yap , Marek Tyler
