PETRIC // Flashbacks
Rising Canadian country trio PETRIC have just released Déjà Vu, the first single from their highly anticipated forthcoming LP, Flashbacks. Déjà Vu and its accompanying music video are out and available to stream now, with Flashbacks in its entirety slated for release on January 13th, 2021. While the majority of Flashbacks was written and recorded over the past two years, Déjà Vu, stands apart. Déjà Vu was written, recorded, and produced remotely from everyone’s individual home studios during the COVID lockdown in Canada. The result is a song that is a stylistic departure for the band, but still unmistakably PETRIC.
