If you’re hiding out indoors to escape the brutal summer heat, Päter’s latest single “Four Walls” will keep you company. Tacked piano, wacky background vocals and a strong driving beat a la Arcade Fire gives this song all the energy you need to keep yourself bouncing around your air conditioned bedroom.
My reference for this track was the part in Willy Wonka where all the creepy dolls do a song and dance and then blow up. It’s about this age of bedroom content making that’s dressed up with so much promise but can in fact become quite isolating and maddening. Packaged in high octane indie rock delight.
Who would have thought a music career could begin from the sale of a childhood puppy? After being forced to sell their family dog after the birth of a sibling, Päter traded in a pet for a guitar. Over the years and through lots of experimentation, this quirky Iranian-Canadian singer songwriter has developed a signature sound that’s charming, unique and infectious.
