Description

Creative, unique and forward thinking new album album by Quebec's finest art-rock band Corridor.

Supermercado: a mosaic, tangible, colourful to the point of saturation, anchored in a very real present. Behind the metaphor that gives the new album its title, Corridor examines modernity, takes on this transitional transition by looking at where it went wrong: pushed around by big data, apathy induced by oversaturation, the speeding up of cycles, effort stripped to its bare minimum, physical detachment.

After giving the art-rock and jangle-pop treatment to their first two efforts Un Magicien en toi and Le Voyage Éternel, Corridor sticks to its signature sound: upfront, dissonant guitars upheld by minimal beats and syncopated bass lines, yet also marks a new direction. Supermercado leans on repeated strong melodies, slow progressions, bolstered by two distinct voices, yielding a more hypnotic, sharper, and strangely, poppier result. Corridor recorded this new record in the hallowed halls of Montreal's Breakglass Studios, with Emmanuel Ethier (Chocolat, Bernhari, Peter Peter) assuming production duties.
