Robinson Kirby hope to Find A Way back to love in their latest single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Freshly pressed from their 2021 album Little Dreams, the gentle rhythm of Find A Way instills a sense of beautiful calm — while the satiny vocal tones send the listener floating through the song with a warm feeling of assurance. The song features a graceful, echoey twang of the electric guitar, and its solo, along with the slide of the lap steel, tie the instrumentation together seamlessly. These combined elements create a serene flow that contrasts the turbulence inherent in lyrics about the uncertainty of lasting love. Ultimately, Find A Way is a song about revelation, and what we uncover both about ourselves as well as our loved ones during times of uncertainty and emotional strife.
It’s certainly not out of place on the Toronto band’s heartfelt and personal Little Dreams EP. Robinson Kirby say their songs “reflect a time of growth and change in our lives. Conceptually, the songs are about love, searching for connection, and finding your place in the world.” Written while studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston and living in Los Angeles, the EP was influenced by the spirit of singer-songwriters from the’70s, updated with a modern approach.
Robinson Kirby are fronted by singer-songwriters and guitarists Luke Robinson and Madelyn Kirby, augmented by Jonathan Elyashiv (bass) and Ross Hodgkinson (drums, percussion). Find A Way also features Paul Phelan (lap steel) and Harrison Lenz (backing vocals). The EP was engineered by Pedro Calloni at Village Studios in Los Angeles and Harrison Lenz at Lenz Entertainment in Toronto. Mixing was handled by Lenz.
