Initially a pop outlet for the French songs of JE Sheehy (Beard Springsteen, The Trick, Saint-Jack, Deep Fryer), Off Season was also a playground for him to craft ambiant instrumental pieces which served as intros, outros and interludes to his work. These, with two unreleased tracks from an unreleased Off Season album, form the title track of this EP, stitched into a ten minutes piece. The B-Side, is a drone piece released online for Drone Day 2015.
From 2011 until 2015, Off Season released two full-length albums, several EPs and countless singles. While JE never played shows as Off Season, his work received attention from different media outlets who celebrated his pop hooks. In 2016, the project evolved into Saint-Jack, his new French outlet which released its debut EP, Bimingham.
Recorded in Fredericton from 2014 until 2016, Une année à Halifax will be released through Bored Coast Records on a limited edition of 15 mono cassettes and online, in stereo.
