Ariane Moffatt, Absolutely Free, Said the Whale: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of Dec. 17, 2018

Editorial Staff

Singer-songwriter Ariane Moffatt released a new album this past fall called Petites mains précieuses, and the smooth-sounding single "Viaduc" debuts on the top 30 chart this week at #27.

Petites mains précieuses by Ariane Moffatt

Absolutely Free has the highest debut this week with a new single called "Still Life," from its sophomore album due out next year.

The band said via press release that the song is about the struggle, both internally and externally, that humans must wage against inertia."'Still Life' starts in a familiar universe and bubbles up into another. The shift illustrates an appetite for personal, political and stylistic change, boiling over. The song examines feelings of being worn down and halted by progress, stagnating both in society and individually. It is about breaking free from patterns of still life defined by cyclical, repeated forms of inaction, and predictable modes of conformity."
