Emerging duo Dear Pressure is back with new music.

The Toronto pair, made up of guitarist/songwriter Matt Kahane and producer Quin Kiu, is ready to share their whimsical new single "Stories," which originated in their last year of college and is reflective of "deep anticipation of inevitable farewells and imagined reunions." The track premiering today on Variance.

"'Stories' unfolded in a glacially slow manner," the duo said of the new song. "It was made on different computers in different rooms over the course of a year. We ended up completing the song on the other side of finishing college, and putting it out feels like a cathartic summation of all the experiences we had skipping classes, falling in and out of love, and figuring out our place in the Toronto music scene."

Hear "Stories" below.
