HAVENS – “TAKING ME AWAY”
A Spill Exclusive Music Premiere
Indie rock artist Havens releases “Taking Me Away“, the final single of his trilogy of songs that examine the theme of love from various perspectives. Written by Havens, “Taking Me Away“ follows the story of letting go of the past and embracing the feeling and excitement of newfound love. Havens’ baritone vocals and multi-layered guitar intricacies dance above a tight groove provided by producer and bassist Ian Madden and Juno award-winning drummer, Tim Oxford.
“Taking Me Away’s” release follows the success of his previous hit collaborations with Ian Madden and Tim Oxford, “Peace In Darkness” and “Fall“. “Peace In Darkness” is an ode to the classic love story with a dance-rock feel, while “Fall” is a catchy indie-rock jam with a bouncy bass line and shimmering jangly guitars and synths. Combined, both singles have garnered over 106,000 streams on Spotify and over 1 million media impressions across Canada.
“With “Taking Me Away“, we wanted to make a groovy and fun track to suit the lyrics’ positive theme of finding true love,” comments Havens. “The rhythm section of Ian and Tim are crucial in providing a strong groove here, and I laid down no less than 36 guitar tracks to help create a vibrant landscape of hooks, melodies and textures to keep the listener interested as the song progresses.”
