December 10 street date. Bria is an intimate and incisive labour of love from multi-instrumentalists Bria Salmena and Duncan Hay Jennings, who have toured for years as members of Toronto four-piece FRIGS, whose 2018 debut "Basic Behaviour" was long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize. Making a mark in diverse genres from country to punk, both play as permanent members of Orville Peck’s band. Catapulted by a deep sense of dread and confusion in the depths of 2020, Salmena decided to forgo writing her own music. "I wanted to listen for what might reflect my life back to me", she says, "six tracks that could be my mirror". The result is a pointillistic knockout of an EP that weaves a landscape both luscious and a little rogue; showing us exactly what good songs can do. "Cuntry Covers Vol. 1" houses it all: well-worn favourites and lesser-known gems from Karen Dalton, John Cale, Waylon Jennings, The Walker Brothers, Lucinda Williams, and Mistress Mary.
