Mississauga noise rockers JONCRO have released their latest single “Adeline V. Woolf,” written from the perspective of a person whose romantic partner committed suicide. It is semi-inspired by the death of author Virginia Woolf and seeks to bring awareness to mental health.
“The song is my attempt to capture the pain of losing someone you love and the powerlessness that comes with being unable to help them,” says frontman Daniel G. Wilson,
“I have struggled with depression and anxiety and know people who have also struggled with mental health issues. So the details of her death really hit home for me. “
Due to the subject matter of the song, the band is using this as an opportunity raise funds for the cause and will be donating all the money from the song on Bandcamp to CAMH.
I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
