Sonic Detour releases video for new single, “Dolls”

Saint John, NB-based alt-metal rockers, Sonic Detour is made up of Goose (lead singer), Jason Crowley (Bass/backup vocals), Marcus Marcial (Guitar/backup vocals), Jeff Andrusyk (Drums), and Nikki Cook (Guitar/backup vocals). They have recently unveiled a video for their newest single, “Dolls”.

A power-metal ballad filled with introspective lyrics masked by the gritty chugs and vocal performance accommodating them, there’s an intentional attempt to redirect the listener’s interpretations of the lyrics, creating an air of mystery, while also encouraging a replay.

“I don’t like to say what any of the songs are specifically about,” lead singer Goose shares. “I want the work to stand on its own. I want to leave it open to both interpretation and misinterpretation. 

“I’m just trying to make the listener feel something.

“The band writes the music, and I use that as a springboard to write the lyrics,” Goose continues. “Each piece of music has a mood, and I try to mine that for emotion. I think something that makes Sonic Detour unique is that our influences vary so widely that the music we make as a group doesn’t sound all that much like the music we listen to individually.”

With that, it’s no mystery as to how this powerhouse alt-metal band has acquired its massive, critically-acclaimed, and multi-award nominated and winning following. The only wonder here is how far high they’ll go.
