While Ontario indie collective Odd Years preps for the release of their sophomore album this April, they’re dropping clues as to what to expect from that release. Right now, we’ve got the premiere of their song “Troubadour” to give you a little taste.
A quick beginning, and a hip sway-inducing beat, Odd Years falls a bit into the 50’s with this glamorous vintage rock song. The vocals are rife with emotion, something we have come to expect after their first album Drawing Lines. The song hinges onto the idea of limited time, and is a sweet, sentimental love song at its core.
“Troubadour’ is a song about being on the road and how hard it can be missing your partner,” admits the band. “I love and crave the energy live shows brings to my life, however simultaneously I struggle coping with the comforts that our home has created.”
