Fans of Canadian indie-rock greats Broken Social Scene will want to hear Laser vocalist Lisa Lobsinger, who lent her vocals to the band’s 2010 Forgiveness Rock Record and frequently sang live parts originally done by Feist, Metric’s Emily Haines, and Stars’ Amy Millan. Now, in her own project with rhythm/production duo Paul Pfisterer (The Beauties) and Marty Kinack (Transistor Sound & Light Co), they’re sharing a synth-pop delight called “Leaving it Too Late.”
“I’m not yawning, I’m just gasping for air,” Lobsinger sings in the ethereal cut, though her breathy, leisurely delivery would beg to differ. Layering textural keyboard notes with what theremin-like glissandos, “Leaving it Too Late” evolves into a warm yet slightly detached groove. Listen below, and look out for forthcoming details about Laser’s debut album and tour dates in the coming weeks.
