Exclusive premiere of the video “Leaves of Three” by Meter Bridge!

Meter Bridge are Richard Kleef and Jill Beaulieu of Nelson, BC, and we’ve been digging their darkwave for some time now. “Leaves of Three” is from their latest album ‘Contact High’. The video is a delightful and highly original work of animation by Jesse Stasiuk.

“Jill Beaulieu and I sat down for coffee back in May and came up with the story together,” says Stasiuk. “This is my second solo music video project and it was a wonderfully engaging learning experience. It was also incredibly challenging at certain stages so I am very grateful for Jill and Richard’s continued support and feedback during the process.”

1. What’s in a name? Is there a story behind your artist name (if not going by given name)?

Yes the story involves a friend that was over at our house. He noticed that the meter bridge on our mixing board was not working. He said “hey your meter bridge isn’t working”. And Richard said “well that’s a great name for a band”.

2. Where are you from, and/or where are you currently located?

We live in Nelson BC halfway between Calgary Alberta and Vancouver British Columbia. Jill was raised in Ymir, a tiny community near the city of Nelson, Richard’s hometown.

Leaves of Three

Contact High Review – Keith Whitham

Keith Whitham Review Contact High

Review:

Unless you’ve been spending a few months dead you’ll be very aware of the return this year of Meter Bridge, the bouncy duo from the vastlands of Nelson, Canada. Jill and Richard have spent a good amount of time and energy creating their second full length release, and after a few false starts it landed on Earth at the end of September. And finger on the pulse as always, I’m only just getting to it now. Such is life in 2017. Everyone is busier somehow now, and there’s a lot of vitriol being spat across the net since Mr Trump strolled onto the scene. Music feels like it’s somehow taking a back seat to this guy, rightly or wrongly. However, if you’re here, reading this, then you’ve taken time out from it all, and you’ve landed yourself on the shores of a divine album. You’ll enjoy your stay.

Contact High

Beta Test

About

An emotional, lyrically expressive collection revealing
themes of love, loss, critical thought process, mediocre life and
provocation. Musically modern and edgy while awakening memories of
sophistipop.

We locked ourselves away for a winter and came up with the pieces for this album. We had technical support from Gravityslip of Manchester UK. Once we sent it out for feedback, Mind Veneration of Virginia, US offered to help with production. RSO of Nelson BC created the artwork cleverly representing our concept idea. We are very appreciative of all our supporters’ expertise.

Meter Bridge Live at the Royal in Nelson BC

About

Jill Beaulieu and Richard Kleef of Meter Bridge locked eyes as they sang the refrain from Kite. Years of perseverance and passion flowed through that look—an encapsulation of the work they put in leading to their debut live performance at the Royal in Nelson, BC.

FILTER/KITE

Filter / Kite

About

On the trail of their recent single ‘It Was Nothing’, Canadian synthwave duo Meter Bridge have announced they will be releasing their latest maxi-single ‘Filter / Kite’ through WEATNU Records. It includes three tracks – ‘Filter’, ‘Kite’ and a Mind Veneration Remix by Mark LaFountain. The two original tracks for this new single feature catchy and crystal clear production with particular attention to the vocals. LaFountain’s output is a wicked club mix with a heavy groove, while the original version of ‘Kite’ features modular synthesis over a minor chord progression, unique quarter time percussion and staccato rhythm.

Latest Release – Slow Motion

slowmoa0177178096_10

This full length album is a natural conclusion to our eponymous EP. Dark rich vocals, full of variation, some heavy themes over predominantly light and trippy synthpop that has real weight when the track channels all kick in together.
