Acer Releases Debut Song “Baker St.”
- Canadian dream pop duo Acer, consisting of instrumentalist/producer Kyle Gottschalk & vocalist Connory Ballantyne, released their debut song “Baker St.” on May 4, 2022.
The song will appear on their upcoming self-titled debut EP, which is set to be released on July 1, 2022.
It was written by Connory Ballantyne and produced by Acer.
The song references Toro Y Moi and Slowdrive to create a track that “embraces a sense of duality.”
There is almost something haunting and nostalgic about the song, or as Kyle Gottschalk shared, “like something moving underneath a calm lake.”
Acer's Kyle Gottschalk said, “For me, it is a reflection on the present as a future memory, a certain awareness of the ephemeral; and the bittersweet feeling that accompanies that. A combination of gratitude and melancholy for a temporary and temporal pleasure.”
The duo formed the band during their time as roommates during the lockdowns. They take influence from both contemporary hip-hop and shoegaze.
