Sonic Detour - Dolls

Sonic Detour sounds like a rusty transmission going into high gear, combining the fury of metal, the energy of nu-metal, and the sour rawness of punk rock. It also works. Their self-titled debut EP, has jagged guitar riffs and irresistible hooks, fluidly transitions between tracks that are shamelessly fierce, brazenly provocative, and occasionally even emotional.

Sonic Detour was formed in early 2019 by three childhood friends, Jeff Andrusyk (drums), Andrew Clifford (guitar), and Jason Crowley (bass). They quickly added Marcus Marcial (lead guitar) and began writing songs. The band's singer, Goose Jenkly, was added in January 2020, and the five took to the stage for the first of a series of live gigs in their hometown of Saint John, New Brunswick, the following month. Soon after, they took advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic's downtime to record their debut EP, which was released at the end of 2020.

This is their new single, called Dolls, a very energetic tune (after a slow start) amazingly performed by the band. Very interesting is the tempo change at around 2.40. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and don't forget to follow Sonic Detour on social media.
