“Day Fort” is the latest single from Toronto’s shadowy experimental dance outfit TIO. Of the song, the band had this to say:

“If the thunderdome was beyond, and a phoenix nest is that sacred place where we launch from to return to fire, then the fort we create is like the passing day, gone with dawn and up all night. Dance will never die as long as you can still see the fire’s trails in the black of the sky.”
