Derpletter 5 : Album Release/Party

*|MC:SUBJECT|*

Heyoooooo! Welcome to Derpletter number 5! As you may know, we just released another single off our soon to be released debut LP, Little Death. Throw it on in the background while you dig into the derp. 

Swirl is a real morning time, candle lit bath, yoga session kind of track, you know? I tried to make the track as honest and minimal as possible to complement Jenny’s lyrics, who themselves are extremely honest and vulnerable.

We are really lucky to be working with Nancy Lee of Chapel Sound as the director for the video of this single. It’ll be coming out in April following the album release. Here’s a little preview of the fun we had on set this past week:

Speaking of the album, it’s being released on… drumroll plz… MARCH 24th! You may have heard a lot of the tracks as we’ve been releasing them as singles over the past year, but we’ve gone back in on all of the tracks with our good friend Astrological, to revamp, and re-mix all of these bad boys (or girls, happy Women’s Day). Then we handed off our baby to David Pimentel aka Juno winning producer POMO for mastering. Gaht dayum did they both do a fantastic job. We’re overjoyed with the entire piece as an album and excited to release it worldwide! It will be available on all streaming platforms and for physical purchase on our online store, as well as any of our shows.

Speaking of shows… we’re doing a HUGE show at Celebrities Underground on March 18th to celebrate the release of this album!

We’ve really gone all out with this show to turn it into a fully immersive experience. As I mentioned in previous Derpletters, we’ve started collaborating with Pacific Wild and will be using the footage that they shoot of the Great Bear Rainforest in Northern BC as the backdrop for the performance, as well as the foundation for the concepts of the installations for the night. Laine Butler will be manipulating said footage live all night, and our pals at ShapeShifterStudio will be transforming the venue. Think fractal forest... underground ;)


In combination with physical context, we have also invited a few of our friends to play with us that night :

A-Ro will be setting the early night vibes with a vinyl DJ set.

withinroots will be doing a live performance of potently soulful live electronic music. He gives me shivers every time I listen to his stuff and, in my opinion, his live performances one up his records.
Jodye will be leading us on the way from live performances into all night dancing vibes with his extremely choice selections of contemporary electronic bangers and perfected mixing abilities.
Tails will be getting deep into the late late night so that we can all go dancing, yes all go all night dancing, dancing. So if you wanna go dancing, ya go go all night dancing, dancing. We will absolutely be providing the vibes.

We have a slew of special guest performers coming on board for I M U R’s set so I do not exaggerate when I say that this will be a performance from us like no other.

Grab your tickets HERE and use the promo code WEAREIMUR to receive $5 off each ticket. We’re getting close to sold out so I would hop on this before they all gone and you have to tell your grandkids about how you almost went to this show but forgot to buy tickets!
