AYRIA – “WE CAN’T LOVE HERE ANYMORE”
Canadian singer-songwriter AYRIA has released the third single from her upcoming album and Artoffact Records debut, This Is My Battle Cry. The new track, “We Can’t Love Here Anymore,” is the sound of a heart beating, with a slick groove and possibly Jennifer Parkin’s best vocal performance ever. The somber sounds and personal lyrics perfectly compliment each other to make for a beautiful song that will keep fans clicking on re-stream.
Commenting about the single, Jennifer Parkin says, “This might be my favourite track from this release. It’s slow and moody with dark droning musical textures and percussion. The lyrics were inspired by the helplessness and hopelessness I sometimes feel about existing in this world, and it’s different from my other work. I’m very proud of how this one turned out.”
Showcasing a slick-more mature sound, This Is My Battle Cry features 10 new tracks including the addictively catchy songs “Stranger Danger” and “No One Asked You”. Although the album is a nod to AYRIA’s previous ear-candy laced works, it’s also a reflection on the past few years of experiences, giving the album a darker tone. Inspired by her personal struggles and rage, the album title track “Battle Cry”, and “Why Aren’t You Dead Yet?” spotlight Parkin’s, “tongue in cheek sassy attitude,” showcasing that not everything made with sugar and spice is always as nice as it seems. Infectious, anthemic and harrowingly therapeutic, This Is My Battle Cry is one for the ages.
