Marianas Trench, a pop-rock quartet from Vancouver and one of Canada’s favourites has released their much-anticipated video for “Astoria”, the title track of their 2015 album. An unusual choice for a single, but fans were over the moon when the band started teasing the release of the video on the second anniversary of the album. An ode to the inspiration of the album, The Goonies, and filmed in Astoria itself, the video brings the band’s love for the classic movie to life as they visit the house used for the movie, as well as other areas in the town. The band had previously announced that the Astoria album cycle had finished with their last tour, so fans were delighted at the prospect of the new video.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
