It's been 3 years since the Toronto-based genre defying music producer has released a project. During that time Pursuit Grooves was building her graphic/product design alias (MO:delic Arts), and now she's back with a heavy hitting funky yet industrial take on instrumental electronic music that is complex and dynamic in theme. Felt Armour is about finding balance in life. The battle between being strong and being allowed to feel. Appearing to have a tough exterior that is actually soft and even fragile. Not being afraid to have grand ambitions, knowing that there will be obstacles along the way. Learning to embrace the journey and the process, even if it's a battlefield. And ultimately not giving up in the face of adversity.
"Pursuit Grooves builds her own electronic sound world on Felt Armour. The Toronto producer seamlessly blends drips of hip-hop, waves of ambience and distorted echoes of soul into something otherworldly"-Now Magazine
"Smith's ability to so acutely capture such distinct and opposing feelings in a single track is remarkable. It's an album to take your time with, to immerse yourself in and be genuinely surprised with what unfolds."-Exclaim
More than a feeling, it's a lifestyle.
