Toronto-based band Favours share the track "Afterwards".
"Afterwards” anthemic chorus and raw verse's echo singer Alexander Zen’s urge to prevent self destruction.
With the face scar to prove it, the song was written after Zen fell through a window, leaving him with a marking to rival Al Capone.
This ode to survival takes the listener on a romanticized version of loosing oneself in a whirlwind of bad decisions as a cautionary tale to those living on the edge.
Figuratively asking those who are feeling the same forlorn pressures to press pause.
Favours, are the latest product of Toronto’s thriving art scene, blending new wave, colourful electronic music, with artful aesthetics, sewn together with cryptic storytelling from a male and female lead.
Brought to life with vintage synthesizers and jazz guitar, “Afterwards” showcases Zen’s unique take on songwriting, spinning a sonic cocoon you can hide in.
