Trevor Innes aka Łindal pulled a big rabbit out of his hat this time: he was able to connect people, to bring them together and to share their love for music. That’s what music is all about, folks.
With an uplifting melody, a slow and steady beat and a somewhat steel drum sounding synth giving the track an almost carribean flair, Vancouver based Łindal made an easy-going, club/bar ready feelgood track that makes you nod your head while listening. The track isn’t overdone with too much effects, one-shots or anything, you’ll find just a great mixture of tension building elements and relaxing elements. The vocals are sung and mixed in soft, but front and center, so to speak.
But here’s what really fascinated me with “Tonight We Dance”: watching the video, I found out that in order to get the song out there, the crew did a project that I consider true art. They put up a set somewhere downtown Vancouver, and invited people to be part of their video by dancing to the tune. And by doing so, they got many random strangers to express their feelings about the music. Or at least have a fun time trying to do so. I’m sure it wasn’t that easy to talk some of these people into it, but the beauty of that project is that it didn’t matter where they came from, who they are, what they do for a living, what race, color, gender, age – they all were connected by a single track made by Innes. Plus his honesty and performance skills to attract and influence with his music and performing. In a time where everbody is constantly concerned about the world and it’s rising tensions, we need people like those guys delivering fun and good times instantly. And involving everybody, all differences aside.
Doing a project like this video is a PR trick as well, because now he instantly has gained a small fan base (anyone in the video of course wants to see the finished clip, right). And to reach a point where people are actually having fun expressing themselves (you can’t teach that, it’s just there. Don’t take my word for it, watch the clip.) is all you need to go big in the industry.
“Tonight We Dance” is a solid dance tune. The idea of the music video is equally as great as the track itself. And with Łindal just releasing another great track called “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head“, I’m not worried at all that the Canadian artist will be a huge impact in the scene throughout 2017.
