Dear Rouge Share “Gimme Spirit” Music Video

On April 8, Vancouver alt-rock duo Dear Rouge shared their long-awaited third full-length album, Spirit (out now via Pheromone Records). As the band wrote of the record, “Spirit is the most vulnerable and raw side of Danielle’s inner thoughts, and the line being thrown from these questions and deep reckonings within oneself, urging you to grab hold and hang on for dear life.”

To celebrate, they have now shared another single, “Gimme Spirit”, alongside an accompanying music video.

The band recorded Spirit secluded away from busy cityscapes. Drew and Danielle took up residence in a lakeside cabin shortly after the release of PHASES, their sophomore record. The duo found themselves spending their days alone together, and Spirit began to take form over the winter months.

“I had this epiphany,” Danielle shared, “that we needed to come back to ourselves and the joy and comfort we found in each other when we began writing music together.”
