Nudes EP by Casey MQ

Creamcake and 3hd 2018 are pleased to announce the latest online release, Casey MQ’s Nudes EP with lead single “Between Water”.

The Canadian singer, songwriter, musician and producer blurs the borders between ambient production and melancholic soul, distorted club music and electronic pop. A classically-trained pianist, Casey has scored original music for a number of films that have screened at TIFF, SXSW and Hot Docs Film Festival, while producing for other artists including Zaki Ibrahim, TiKA and Cadence Weapon.

Most notably, the Toronto-based artist released a collaborative EP with Paris’ oklou called For The Beasts on Parisian label Permalnk in December last year. A reimagining of pop-star vocal samples in mutated form, Casey MQ carries this preoccupation with dance hooks and synth melodies into Nudes. Five singles swagger through the RnB influences of an updated lounge music for the internet era, similar to contemporaries Dan Bodan and serpentwithfeet, while focussing on delicate, sometimes odd, harmonies not unlike anohni. Lead single “Between Waters” is the more epic of the bunch, where a prancing synthline and crisp kick sustains Casey MQ’s luscious voice on an unyielding EDM high.

Casey MQ will be performing 3hd 2018’s Energy Exchange — along with QT, Bob Vylan, Golin, and Dis Fig — at Säule on October 25.
