Fri Feb 19, 2021

Not ones to let the doldrums of winter or pandemic restrictions mute their music or motivations, Canadian rock duo Eclecticus serve up their fierce and energetic new single, “Took Me for Granted”

Fresh from their fifth album — aptly titled Five Point 0 — co-fronts Gar Reid and Tiina LeMay say the five-track release is quick to capture their distinct point of view as songwriters and performers. “We let loose with this record,” LeMay shares. “It’s catchy and colourful!”

Landing four months after their previous offering, 2020’s Take Me Away, the duo say making Five Point 0 was cathartic and reinvigorating. Specifically: the video for “Took Me for Granted,” was shot on location in their home in Toronto.

Take Me Away Says Rock Duo Eclecticus with the Release of Fourth Album

Fri Oct 23, 2020

Canadian rock duo Eclecticus says Take Me Away with the release of their fourth and newest album and single, “Movin’ On”.

Rich and rife with all the makings of a stellar rock release — soaring vocals, driving riffs, haunting keys, and dynamic percussion — the savoury release was carefully crafted by the Toronto-based couple during the nation’s designated social isolation period this year.

“The album reflects the current environment,” Gar Reid shares. “We worked tirelessly in our studio to really convey a sound and feeling like you’re in the room with us.”

“For us, this was a very creative time,” co-front Tiina LeMay adds. “Considering the historical circumstances we are living in right now, I think many singer-songwriters have found they are inspired to write during this time.”

The making of Taking Me Away was written, performed, and produced by singer-songwriters Tiina LeMay and Gar Reid during the pandemic.
