Haley Blais Shares Details Of New Album
Haley Blais’ forthcoming release Below the Salt Features the production work of Tennis (Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley) and fellow Vancouver artist Louise Burns. Williams’ lyrics riff on the joys and banalities of the every day, on the need to break apart and away from an uninspiring life, on radical acceptance, and manifesting a world where you feel proud of yourself and who you’re surrounded by. Below the Salt comes out on September 25, via Tiny Kingdom.
Below the Salt is described as a coming of age story that recognizes that there is no real ‘coming of age.’ There are hundreds of instances of recognition and of learning. What do we do when we find them? Well according to Haley, we take them with us. As dissonant guitar strings fire and a bass drum pulses on the single “Rob the Original” Haley softly lulls us with this record’s ethos, With all these magic moments sparkling/This one’s mine.
Keep up with Haley on her adored YouTube channel or find her on Instagram. To pre-order Below the Salt on vinyl, visit Tiny Kingdom Music. For the month of June, Haley will donate all proceeds from her Bandcamp sales to Hogan’s Alley Society; an organization that advocates for Black Vancouverites who have endured the legacies of urban renewal and their erasure from the official historical narrative.
