Hi all,

Over the last five weeks we have had some of the best experiences we have ever had as a band.

A lot of it still feels unreal. We played 20 shows with Lorde. We met an uncountable number of people at the shows and played for even more. We did it all with a crew of 4 people in a minivan. How did this happen?

We were met with positive and warm receptions at all of these shows. We were never booed or heckled (although if we had been I would have understood). I believe this to be a testament to the curiosity and open-mindedness of Lorde’s audiences. Every single night, we were extremely excited to be there and I think people recognized that and returned the energy.

To everyone who came to these shows and saw us perform, to everyone who we spoke to afterwards: thank you! Your participation made those shows happen and although you probably didn’t come with us in mind, your presence was important to us.

As a thank you we are giving away this song, “Your Eyes”. I originally recorded it in 2011, and when Matt and I started playing shows together as Majical Cloudz this was always part of the set. It’s kind of a relic of the earliest period of our life as a band, so if you are finding out about us for the first time in the wake of our tour with Lorde, this will take you back to the beginning of our music-making days together. We made this new version just before we left on tour, so in one sense it is old and in another sense it is new.

It has been great meeting all of you. We will be touring the USA again soon, and in the meantime we are working on a bunch of new music.

THE CATCH UP: Daniel Caesar, Shi Wisdom (shiwizkid) and a shift in Toronto R&B by Anupa Mistry.

"We have people living in this city, making music that’s almost otherworldly. They’re breaking from convention to write songs about the things that matter to them – and their concerns include things beyond The Weeknd’s template of sex, drugs and stunting." - Anupa Mistry

"If you could ask for anything on a rider…"


"I’ve been thinking a lot about roller blading and Ben Affleck, so if we could combine that into some kind of activity every single show that’d be good." - Perfume Genius
