Track Of The Day: Dearly Beloved – ‘Race To The Bottom’

Long term faves, Toronto-based Dearly Beloved, make a welcome return to our ears with a brand new video to accompany the announcement of their upcoming new album, set for release in October.

Propelled by a racing, driving energy, ‘Race To The Bottom’ is an ode to the family-run businesses of the band’s first-generation immigrant grandparents. As the gritty howl of Rob Higgins accompanies the searing passion of Niva Chow’s vocals, relentless beats and raging hooks build, creating a gutsy slice of anthemic rock ‘n’ roll. Of the track, Higgins explains:

The song is a tribute to our grandmothers, who both ran convenience stores that Niva and I worked in as kids growing up. Their stories and achievements as immigrants to Canada that could barely speak English are even more incredible when you put them in the context of 2019.
