Canadian alt pop-inspired, singer-songwriter-composer, Adaline, has released of a new, stripped-down, EP. Titled Aquatic Acoustic, the EP sees Adaline collaborating with Toronto-based film composer Todor Kobakov to re-imagine four tracks from her latest full-length Aquatic. To what you can expect from the re-worked tracks, check out the acoustic version for Adaline’s achingly beautiful track, “How Could We Know”:
On her latest acoustic effort, Adaline had this to say, “It’s incredible to witness a song live a double life. A song that originally existed to move someone’s body is now asking that same body to slow down and be still. Having the opportunity to showcase these tracks in a more intimate and vulnerable way, helps shed new light on the meaning of these songs.”
Throughout Aquatic Acoustic, composer Todor Kobakov creates dreamy soundscapes with grand piano, cello, lap steel and vibraphone, perfectly complimenting Adaline’s delicate vocals.
Aquatic Acoustic was released on September 29 through Cadence Music Group.
Since her debut release in 2008, Adaline, whose moody pop compositions have been featured in over 60 television shows and films including Grey’s Anatomy, 90210, Rookie Blue, Lost Girl, Flashpoint, Degrassi, Heartland, Bomb Girls, Killjoys, The Samaritan and more.
