Canadian brothers Mickaël and Raphaël Fortin AKA, Hey Major have just dropped their new track & video "The Station", and we're loving it.
Inspired by the best of Brit rock and pop, “The Station” is a beautiful piano rocker
about the yearning for a past love.
From the eerie drone over a resolute bass line, the piece bursts to life with Mickaël’s pristine vocals, and Raphaël’s restrained drumming.
It's a beautifully written track showcasing the brothers abilities with certain Jeff Buckley, Coldplay and Matt Corby vibes.
The accompanying music video was shot at the heritage Museum Station on the boys last trip to Sydney.
