A core member of Canadian collective Crack Cloud, Daniel Robertson has unveiled his new project Peace Chord, announcing today the news of an eponymously titled debut album, due for release on 5th February.
Sharing new single ‘Empty In This House’ alongside the news, Daniel says, “I have spent the past number of years working in harm reduction in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. On my way home from the shelter, I would write words on my phone. This song grew as I was recollecting the imprints of witnessed trauma, the dissociation from a name, returning to myself to trace the changes.”
On the accompanying self-directed video he adds, “I wanted to look into a humble alternate universe filled with the same elements that informed the Peace Chord album: shelter residents, my family, members of Crack Cloud, my community, the instruments that made the album, all filmed in the room that Peace Chord was made. All the same parts, all made by hand, reformed to create a different whole, but with the same spirit.”
