Ah, yes! Our guy J. Hutton is back with yet another grove.
After capturing our attention with “Pink Couch” earlier this year, the multi-talented Canadian artist–who sings, plays instruments, and even gets down on some illustration–quickly followed up with the one-two punch of “Old Fashioned” and “Take It Easy.” And now, with an AOTY contender in the tuck, Mr. Hutton is back at it with his sixth single, “Queen of Parkdale.”
“Parkdale is a magnificent safe haven from all things of a remarkable standard. In a dive bar west of Jameson Avenue. J. Hutton soaked in the neon brightly lit atmosphere. As the bar band caroused in the backroom, in walked the golden haired wonder—a Queen. A once derelict drinkery, transformed before J’s very eyes. The now glowing magenta overtones followed her as the transients made way. It is safe to assume that he was transfixed by her indefectible presence. The air seemed to thicken with the step he took towards her. His introduction was stammered and hesitant, but seemingly unfazed by his timid nature, she introduced herself. Her name was Georgia.“
Inspired by Hutton and producer Losh’s deep appreciation of old soul music, “Queen of Parkdale” is ballad dedicated to the uncut beauty of the rustic Toronto neighborhood. Press play and vibe out below.
