Substance and accessibility are often considered opposing forces when it comes to pop music, making it all the more impressive when a band like Scenic Route to Alaska so effortlessly delivers ample doses of both.

The easygoing Edmonton-based trio, comprised of Trevor Mann on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Shea Connor, and bassist Murray Wood, effortlessly weaves catchy vocals and memorable melodies through rich arrangements – instantly engaging but begging to be heard again and again. It’s a coveted combination within the crowded sphere of indie rock – and one that’s rarely the product of anything but time, talent, and heaps of hard work. Of course, Scenic Route to Alaska are no strangers to any of those.

In early 2016, the band entered Monarch Studios in Vancouver with Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to cut the 11 tracks comprising 'Long Walk Home', their latest LP. On Mar. 9th, 2018, the band are set to release their new album 'Tough Luck'.

Even the title, 'India/Seattle' feels like a story on it’s own. Victoria’s Mike Edel couldn’t have named his sophomore release more poetically.

Part of growing a little bit older, a little bit wiser is the awareness that comes inside growing spaces. Nearing thirty, on the exhaust of a brutal four year touring schedule, Edel settled inside these spaces to create his finest work yet. There’s a quiet here, even in the literal spaces in the record that speak loudly.

There’s something about the way Edel presents personal experiences in a way that project universal understandings. Love and beauty, pain and confusion, the knowledge that all precious things are only precious because they can be lost. It feels a little bit like growing up — like the moment when everything that felt so close as a young person is all of a sudden so far away. It’s the comfort in finding that you aren’t alone. There’s a humanity in these discoveries, and listening to 'India/Seattle' feels like watching Edel discover it for himself, and the product is a little bit of each of us.

Cartoon Lizard is a five piece psychedelic pop outfit based out of Victoria, BC made up of Trevor Lang, Shilo Preshyon, Brennan Doyle, Alex Maunders, and Ritchie Hemphill. Their songs are intricately arranged, multi-coloured compositions designed to appeal on a surface level as well as reward those who unearth its hidden layers through repeated listens.
