A powerful mix of electro-pop and well-incubated personal catharsis adds depth to the sonic footprint of this prolific musical artist.

Missing Years: Sin, Love - is a collection of b-side recordings and unfinished works by Canadian artist and producer Jason Zerbin, an artist who rose to prominence in the Canadian indie scene with infectious tracks marked by emotive hooks and spiritual undertones.

Twenty Nine was written about a difficult year: being stuck and overthinking, feeling unfulfilled and not being able to just let things go. Missing Years traces a deconstruction of faith and perspective over the course of 7 years, and is constituted by reflections on the process of change, loss, and love. Twenty Nine's powerful mix of electro-pop and well-incubated personal catharsis adds depth to the sonic footprint of this prolific musical artist, whose previous work with Homme de Fleurs earned a write-up earlier this year on CHILLFILTR, while best-known tracks "New Earth" and "Worlds on Fire" have been featured in film and TV on shows like Grey's Anatomy and So You Think You Can Dance.

Twenty Nine was recorded in locations that include cabins in the Canadian woods, the Devonian countryside, and East Berlin. This song is featured on our Groovy Summer playlist.
