Local music duo releases R&B project
Releasing a two-track project titled Transcendance on January 27, local R&B and Soul collective Many Hundred Towns believes it has just the sound the people need during these trying times. Featuring two tracks on the new project, respectively titled “Nothing” and “It’s Fine”, one of the group’s singer-songwriters Grégory-Manuel Ponce-Quintal said the project intends to encapsulate two sides of the pandemic’s impact on the world.
He explained that the first song is about signifying the importance of human connection, while the second focuses on how the world will eventually go back to normal and that everything’s going to be okay. Transcendance is available on Spotify - noting that the group is also present on various platforms like Facebook, Soundcloud, and Apple Music.
Composed of 19-year-olds Ponce-Quintal and Anthony-Manuel Lopes – École secondaire Grande-Rivière graduates - the duo has amassed more than 20,000 listens on Spotify so far with songs like “Take Notes”, “Upside Down”, and “INCENDIO”. Coming up, the duo is preparing on releasing a new single on February 13, as well as a variety of cover songs on YouTube.
