Fossil Record Premieres Debut Single “A Little Weight”

One of the most complicated parts about music is that the band members grow and change. You, as the listener are able to keep a little fragment of them with you at all times, whether it’s on cassette or vinyl or CD or digitally. They never sound different, never change, never grow on that song or record you love so much. But outside of that recorded moment, there is growth and change, for all people. So when my Canadian friend Jordy Bell told me that he and The Creeps bandmate Scott “Skottie McCash were working on a new project I was… intrigued. When I was given a sneak peak of the new album by their new project, Fossil Record, I was floored. It’s so familiar, but sonically not something that you’d expect from the duo of long time friends.

Today, we’re premiering the debut single and the title track of the band’s upcoming release. A Little Weight will be released later this summer. The album was produced by Alex Gamble (Alvvays, Fucked Up, Broken Social Scene, Sarah Harmer, etc.) with contributions from Jon Hynes (Kathleen Edwards, Donovan Woods, Hey Rosetta, etc.) on bass.

Band member Skottie stated the following:

“I think what ties the songs on our record together thematically is the idea of not quite being able to bring yourself to look directly at the things that demand exactly that – whether big, slow moving crises like the climate catastrophe we’re collectively embarked upon and the ever-spreading rot brought on by late-stage capitalism, or the more personal like fraying relationships and even death itself. How do you look at that stuff for too long without losing your head? How do you remember to breathe? How do any of us remember to breathe? As the opening song on the album, “A Little Weight” sets the table for the rest of the record.”
