Sonic Avenues – “Future” (video) (premiere)

Montreal's Sonic Avenues released their new album Disconnector last week and now we've got their new single, which is a slab of catchy post-punk goodness.

Sonic Avenues‘ “Future” shows off the band’s punk roots and their post-punk sound that bares deep influences from Devo, the Buzzcocks, and a bit of Howard Devoto’s Magazine. It’s a rocking, two and a half minute slice of raucous energy, poppy choruses, slashing and chopping Rickenbacker guitars. Sonic Avenues hail from the incredibly fertile Montreal music scene and they are about to release their fourth album, Disconnector, which examines themes of future and destiny, human potential and its annihilation. But always with catchy tunes.

Maxime Desharnais (vocals/guitar) says, “the video aesthetics reflects the abrupt contrasting nature of the song; at times quiet but jittery, then bursting into loud and fast. The concept serves its purpose in portraying the high-strung constraining uncertainty we all feel facing certain choices we have to make in life. But once choices are made, the wheel is in motion and consequences cans explode out of nowhere.”

Sonic Avenues’ Disconnector released on October 7th in the US via Dirtnap Records and in Canada via Blow the Fuse Records.
