Song of the Day: Lucky One – Gena Perala

GENA PERALA rallied some of the finest musicians together for the live recording of her new single ‘Lucky One’.

Recorded at Monarch Studios in Gena’s hometown Vancouver BC, ‘Lucky One’ is a little bit Rock and Roll and a little bit Country with her signature lyrical style: Honest and unapologetic sprinkled with a bit of sass. “I wanted to show all the moving pieces of a song so I brought in a good friend and filmmaker to shoot us while we played the track live off the floor.” Perala explains.

The video captures a fun and playful day in the Studio without any real plan or rehearsal. “I mean I probably should have done a wee bit of planning and rehearsing but hindsight is 20/20 plus I wanted it to be spontaneous. I really wanted to give people an idea of all the instrumentation and players behind a song,” Perala says, explaining the concept of the video.

‘Lucky One’ is part of a side project for Perala right now. She is currently in the process of recording and releasing a down tempo electronic synth album but with so much material the artist feels the need to release music in many forms. “I just need to start getting my music out and I thought this would be a fun way to release a song,” she says.

New Track: Beast Boy – Jay Portal x DBLCRSS

Hailing from Hamilton – a city in Ontario – DBLCRSS and JAY PORTAL are hell-bent on injecting some serious fire into their hometown’s near non-existent hip-hop scene with brand new single,  ‘Beast Boy’

Although their latest effort is a hip-hop track that boasts an infectiously boisterous bass, the Canadian youngsters wanted to produce accompanied visuals that’s not the typical rap video – so there’ll be no feature of video babes twerking in the clubs with champagne poured all over them (sorry guys!)

‘Beast Boy’, the first release from their debut EP ‘Hell Is Where The Heart Is’, out now on all streaming/downloading sites.

Check out the video below:
