Multi-instrumentalists Bria debut Cuntry Covers Vol. 1 EP

Sub Pop has signed Bria, the intimate and incisive labour of love from multi-instrumentalists Bria Salmena and Duncan Hay Jennings. Bria has recorded Cuntry Covers Vol. 1, a six-song EP now available pressed on opaque light blue vinyl.

You can now watch the official video for their lead single, "Green Rocky Road," which was co-directed by Andrew Matthews & Maitland Austin-Olsen. Bria had this to say about the video, "We wanted the video for "Green Rocky Road" to act as an homage to the concept of Cuntry Covers — a small window into the world in which it was created, highlighting the collaborative nature of the project and the friendships behind it."

Catapulted by a deep sense of dread and confusion in the depths of 2020, Salmena decided to forgo writing her own music. "I wanted to listen for what might reflect my life back to me," she says, "six tracks that could be my mirror." The result is a pointillistic knockout of an EP that weaves a landscape both luscious and a little rogue; showing us exactly what good songs can do.

Bria's internal turbulence seemed to mirror last year's external instability. When Jennings and back-up singer Jaime McCuaig moved to The Outside Inn, a hobby farm in Hockley Hills, Ontario, Bria soon joined. The farm's living-room-turned-studio proved an ideal setting for the long-time friends to compile a record of handpicked country covers. They went searching for songs that could speak to our everyday loneliness; outside and in. Cuntry Covers Vol. 1 houses it all — well-worn favorites and lesser-known gems.
