September 13, 2022

arbutus are an Irish Pop/Electronic trio who quit their jobs and moved to Canada on separate journeys. Whilst over there they met and formed the group arbutus. The name originates from the street they lived on in Vancouver, where they wrote their first songs together.

The group consists of members Dylan Kelly (Lead vocals & Producer), Josh Murray (Vocals & Guitar) and Jonny McIvor (Guitar & Bass).

Their new single ‘Faded’ is the second instalment in a trilogy of songs that they are releasing that describes the path from trepidation to termination of a couple’s demise.

‘Faded’ describes the realization phase of the demise of the relationship. The song has a serious, solemn message delivered with an energetic, uplifting beat that makes it very digestible. arbutus’ music paints a picture of behaviours that they have observed in modern life in a sometimes satirical way using catchy hooks to get their message across.

Their goal is to show people how important it is to pursue your passion no matter what stage of life you are at. “People are too constrained by societal standards and we want them to break out of that”.

With ‘Faded’ being the second instalment of the trilogy, the anticipation builds for the third and final instalment of the story.
