Listen to Sonic Acrylic's blazing, psychedelic new single, "Forever"

The promise of a "forever" can seem unattainable. It's a concept that alternative rock four-piece Sonic Acrylic attempts to understand on their latest single, "Forever," drawn by the connectedness that keeps us together—both in time and in energy. It may seem like a highbrow endeavor for a three-minute song, but the raw, neo-psychedelic single unravels in simpler, aurally pleasurable means. "I'll give you what you want/have more power than I planned," songwriter/producer Ben Kernion sings in his rough-hewn voice, centered around a slick torrent of guitar textures reminiscent of Sweet Oblivion-era Screaming Trees. 

"Forever" is one of the many musical detours Sonic Acrylic take on their debut album full-length album Alternates, which came out October 25 on all streaming platforms. - Juan Rodríguez

   

Glitter Party - Fuzzy Slackers Debut Album

Glitter Party are bringin’ some dirty fuzzy glitter to the Toronto slacker scene. Their debut self-titled album was released in August of this year and features the previously released singles “Moonrise” and “Orange Paint”. The latter is a thumpin’ noise rock track that has about equal influences from modern California garage rock as well as 80’s pop rock. It could go either way depending on the grit level. In this case, it’s very gritty. Grab some Glitter Party on their bandcamp page! – Kris Gies

   

The Crowleys - Jangly New Psych Single "Clarice"

The Crowleys are a psychedelic pop-rock band from Hamilton. They have figured out a way to effectively master that lo-fi garage sound while keeping the quality high and melodies catchy. Their new single “Clarice” has duel vocals and a medium paced jangle. The lyrics touch on “the uncertainty within yourself when dealing with mental health issues”. The Crowleys play This Ain’t Hollywood in Hamilton on November 6th along with Hot Garbage and Simply Saucer. – Kris Gies

   

The High Loves - Modern Nostalgic Indie Band Plays The Drake 10.30

The High Loves are a 4 piece indie rock band from Toronto inspired by classic legends like The Beatles along with modern indie acts like The Strokes or Arctic Monkeys. Their goal is to be simultaneously modern and nostalgic. They have just dropped a new pop-rock tune “Tried Too Hard” which is a break up song but with a deeper message. The track has happy guitar licks in it which along with the vocal melodies keeps it light and catchy. The High Loves are havin' their release party at The Drake on October 30th with Knifey and The Bandicoots. – Kris Gies
