Hear Calvin Love’s New Single, “Automaton”

Edmonton-based crooner and space / time traveler Calvin Love shares a new science fiction-laden single called, “Automaton.” Following “Daydream” and “I Wanna Know,” the third taste of Calvin’s forthcoming LP, Super Future. “Automaton” plays late Summer knight-rider Funk like a factory machine, while soul-drenched bass and electric guitars chase each other in flirtatious dialogue. Calvin Love’s reedy tenor phases in the same atmospheric register as age-old synthesizers, singing:

“Now off in the distance, her machine calls out ‘I wish you were my robot’ so I wouldn’t feel left out’.

Love is also excited to join Jacco Gardner on a North American tour this Summer. Check out Calvin’s full list of tour dates below along with a stream of the new single. Super Future will be available on 6/16 via Arts & Crafts.
