Common Deer, Wolf Parade, Chad VanGaalen: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of August 21, 2017

Editorial Staff

Toronto electro-pop quintet Common Deer debuts the song "Wait!" on our chart this week. It's the lead single from their upcoming EP II, which was produced by Gus Van Go (Arkells, Whitehorse), and is scheduled to come out on September 8

For Canadian indie music fans, Wolf Parade's reunion was one of the most exciting things to happen last year. This July they released a song called "Valley Boy," which is the highest debut at #22. Their new album, Cry Cry Cry, will be out on October 6 and they will be supporting Arcade Fire on tour this September, with dates in Quebec City, Montreal and Ottawa.

Other debuts this week include "Cellophane" by Metz, and "No One Like You" by Blue Hawaii.

Chad VanGaalen's bouncy new track "Old Heads" climbs to the top spot on our chart this week. It's the first single from his upcoming album Light Information, which is scheduled for release on September 8 via Flemish Eye.
