Joseph Ember – Exit Society

Formerly known as Ursa Major, Toronto multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Joseph Ember returns today with Exity Society, which was written and produced together with Quin Kiu, (Hong-Kong raised /Toronto based producer). The track shows perfectly how to mix classic songwriting with a fresh production skillsets, putting together bluesy guitar licks, soulful vocals and pounding electronic percussions.

Speaking on the track, Joseph Ember said: “Exit Society was first put together on a blazing hot Toronto summer day in Quin’s apartment with no air conditioning. The only thing that could really fit that kind of vibe was a raw, thumping bass line — some kind of summertime skeleton. It had to be bare bones, with the vocals sliding off that. We had xylophones in the chorus to add extra rays of sunshine, and finally a touch of bluesy guitar to round off the drums. Whatever it was, it just worked. We made a completely different song with the same beat but once we decided to add the guitar, we both understood the direction and the entire song was done in about an hour. The artwork was done by Blake Bohls, adding a detailed and colorful piece to the minimal and raw song
