Corridor - Domino (Bonsound): The Montreal rock band releases its third album, Junior, on Oct. 18, following on from 2015's Le Voyage Éternel and 2017's Supermercado. This will be the first to come out internationally via famed label Sub Pop, a deal that confirms this is a band on the rise.
This new single shows why, as it is a bracing slab of riffery driven by ringing guitars. Commenting on the track in a press release, singer/guitarist Jonathan Robert said: "People are often glorifying what being an artist, or a musician, can mean. Art doesn’t necessarily make you a better person. There can be angst, stress, and so on. It can have a negative, direct impact on the people closest to you. Domino is about navigating just that. It is the first song out of Junior that we’ve composed and we’ve played it live quite a few times already."
Junior was produced by Emmanuel Éthier, engineered by Samuel Gemme, mixed by Éthier and Gemme in Montreal at ReelRoad Studios, and mastered by Josh Bonati in New York.
Corridor’s international tour in support of Junior starts on October 23rd with Canadian dates in Montreal, Quebec, Toronto and Vancouver. Full tour details here
