Release Date: October 7, 2016
Sonic Avenues, a band from the Montreal area consists of four members: Max, Sebastien, JC, and Chance. This release will be their fourth full length album. Having never listened to the band, the first track “Future”, just screamed along and was filled with punk influences. Through the entire album I can definitely hear that the band began with punk roots. It is a fast paced, high energy mix of songs, that will keep you going right to the end. The 80’s flair is consistent in all of the songs as well, and I must admit I have a soft spot for 80’s music.
The song “Dancing in the Sun”, was a favorite for me, along with “Tunnel Vision”. The closing song “Defective” was probably one of the quieter songs on the album.
The band will be going out on a month long tour of Canada and the US right after the release.

I wear many hats, such as working full time as an ophthalmic assistant, Birth Doula, selling Younique- and now I also have taken up writing with Canadian Beats. I have always enjoyed writing, and I am so excited to be doing it again. We all need outlets and this for me is something that I love to do. Music has always been a big part of my life, and attending concerts is one of my favorite things to do. The energy that I get from seeing a band play live is like no other, I think it’s almost an addiction for me!
I tend to lean towards rock, alternative, indie, folk and acoustic music- but I am also open to listening to something new too! Maybe I’ll see you around at a concert!
