Paupiere, Wilderness of Manitoba, Aron D'Alesio: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of Sept. 25, 2017

Editorial Staff

Francophone electro-pop band Paupière just released a debut album called À jamais privé de réponses last week. This week, the band edges onto our chart with “Defunte Lune De Miel" checking in at #28. The Montreal trio brings the '80s back in a big way with their layers of synths and robotic vocals.


Toronto's Wilderness of Manitoba also released a new album last week. Across the Dark contains 10 tracks from the band's lead vocalist and songwriter Will Whitwham. The album's first single, "Cindy Runs," is the highest debut at #24.

Other debuts this week include “Some Kinda Blue” from Ben Stevenson and "Yer Cure" from Jordan Klassen.

Young Rival singer and guitarist Aron D'Alesio recorded his solo debut album alone in a series of night shifts in a basement studio in Hamilton. He released the album in late August and now the song "Diamond Ring," which sounds a little like the Beach Boys channeled through a warped lense, climbs all the way to #1 on our chart.
