Etiquette is the Toronto-based duo of Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh and his partner Julie Fader, a solo artist and collaborator with the likes of Great Lake Swimmers and Chad VanGaalen. Their debut Reminisce is coming early next year, and lead single “Outside In” suggests the album will be one to look out for. It’s eerie, minimal synth and guitar music in the vein of Chromatics, or the back half of Talking Heads’ Remain In Light crossed with an ’80s power ballad. Directors Christopher Mills and Gaëlle Legrand created a striking animated video for “Outside In” in collaboration with MuchFACT, and its dark-hued palette expertly complements the music’s sound and feel. Watch below.
Reminisce is out 2/24 on Hand Drawn Dracula. “Outside In” will be released as a digital single on 12/16, and Etiquette will play a release party for the single 12/18 in Toronto.
