Eclectic Revival champion the introvert existence with their lighthearted and lively new Celtic folk-rocker Boring With Me — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Penned by singer Nick Brodie for his wife Christine, the Hamilton outfit’s latest release celebrates the simple joys found in everyday activities like sitting on the couch and watching TV with the one you love — activities that are often sorely missed by everyone from hard-touring musicians to hard-working commuters, as the lyrics explain:
“And although I sing of sailing those tall ships across the sea
Oh darling, would you be boring with me?
Because I lose too much of my life to that place
And I trade off the sight of that warm smiling face
For hours of commuting, of slogging, and computing
And longing for your sweet embrace.”
Boring With Me features Miranda Mulholland on fiddle. It was recorded and mixed at Lincoln County Social Club in Toronto by John Dinsmore, and mastered by Phil Demetro.
Eclectic Revival are a Celtic fusion quintet with members in Brampton and Hamilton. Founded in 2004, they mix East Coast traditional, original rock and blues. Thanks to various members’ backgrounds in acting and standup comedy as well as music, an Eclectic Revival show is frequently an audience-participation event. Their influences include Great Big Sea, Barenaked Ladies, Mumford & Sons and others.
The band released their debut album Life & Love in 2017. In July 2023, they returned with the single Cry Havoc, the first peek at their upcoming album Weight of The World. The followup track Inspired was released in September.
