The Seasons: Junk

The Quebec City band is led by Hubert Lenoir, now making a big splash as a solo artist. This new single has an infectious funk meets glam vibe, with light-hearted lyrics and vocals that channel Prince.

The Seasons: Junk

By Kerry Doole

The Seasons - "Junk" (Simone Records): Few Canadian artists have had the sort of breakthrough year Hubert Lenoir has enjoyed in 2018. His debut solo album Darlene was a hit in Quebec and earned a spot on the Polaris Prize shortlist.

Lenoir stole the show at the Polaris gala, then scored big at the ADISQ Awards last month, taking home three trophies.

Unknown to many is the fact that the flamboyant glam rocker cut his teeth in Quebec City band The Seasons, one that toured internationally. The group has been quiet in recent years, but last year reunited to record their second album, Midnight, Let’s Get a Hot Dog


It is released on Friday, preceded by the charming single, "Junk." It has an infectious funk meets glam vibe, with Lenoir's vocals rather channelling Prince. The album's title is referenced in the lyrics, and the results are as disposable yet tasty as a late night dog.

The album was recorded in 11 days at the Oregon studio of Richard Swift (The Shins, The Black Keys) who produced the record, and sadly passed away in July of this year.

We're certainly keen to hear more, and let's hope The Seasons get to tour.
