BOSSIE ANNOUNCES NEW SINGLE“STRAWBERY MOON” B/W “SOLSBURY HILL”
DUE OUT DECEMBER 1 ON CULVERT MUSIC
SHARES “SOLSBURY HILL” (PETER GABRIEL COVER) BELOW
New York, NY (November 1, 2017) – Toronto artist Bossie, aka Anne Douris, has announced a new digital single, “Strawberry Moon” b/w a cover of Peter Gabriel’s “Solsbury Hill”, set to arrive December 1 on Culvert Music. Bossie has shared her version of “Solsbury Hill” with the announcement via Soundcloud.
On the inspiration to reinterpret “Solsbury Hill”, Douris stated: I always come back to this song during times of transition, because it gives me momentum and reminds me to face forward. It’s exhilarating to let go of something safe and realize that you can trust yourself, that you’re fine on your own. It’s a song to fall in love with yourself to.
Bossie is a candied (and often candy-coloured) pop-pixie alter ego releasing bittersweet synth-pop about confronting the demons of adulthood. Bossie’s roller-disco bass grooves and glittering guitars evoke an eighties revivalism that is both wildly fun and deeply wistful.
Douris has been creating music under the Bossie moniker since 2015 releasing a string of acclaimed singles. Her debut, “Meteor”, was picked up by both the NME & DIY in the UK, who stated respectively, “This enticing glitch-pop number is a real stunner – a pop product as addictive as candy,” and “[Bossie] makes some of the giddiest, most alive-sounding synth pop this side of CHVRCHES.” “Tell It All” led Noisey to state, “Bossie has a knack for 80s glitch-pop that calls on all the greats from Cyndi Lauper to Carly Rae Jepsen.” While “There Will Be Time” led Stereogum to say, “After Taylor and Carly, there’s no one swinging that ‘80s pop hammer with more grace than Bossie.” Bossie has been featured FASHION magazine, and was included in the Toronto Star’s “Five Torontonians To Watch In 2016”.
Bossie spent 2017 putting the finishing touches on her debut full-length album, expected in 2018, while performing during Canadian Music Week, at POP Montreal, and supporting Cindy Wilson of The B52’s in Toronto.
