Canadian band Vox Rea (formerly known as The Katherines) takes us on a dark, melancholic walk through the nostalgia lane as they reflect on the pains of entering adulthood in their new single “Dose Me Up.” It’s an atmospheric pop single that soars with a hypnotic moodiness as they reflect on the loss and gain of identity as we grow older:
“We wrote ‘Dose Me Up’ at home on our grandmother’s piano in late October 2019. This song addresses a struggle with identity when entering adulthood, and a bit of a hardening,” explained the band. They further added, “The nostalgia of being in our childhood home had a big influence — it’s a bit of a lament. The elusiveness and flavour of that created the melancholy mood you hear. A sort of reckoning with the relentless nature of time. A fitting melody for a fall soundtrack.”
Vox Rea are comprised of Kate Kurdyak (lead vocals/piano/guitar/bass), her sister Lauren Kurdyak (vocals/piano), childhood best friend Kaitlyn Hansen-Boucher (vocals/percussion), and Berklee-alum Mitchell Schaumberg (vocals/piano/guitar/bass).
