Indie Rock Band Scenic Route to Alaska Announces New Album Tough Luck
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.
Scenic Route To Alaska´s brand new album, Tough Luck, is set for release on March 9th! They have been laying low for the winter and are almost ready for a wild spring. So far the band have booked a cross Canada tour, our first American tour, showcases at both SXSW and the ECMAs, and then they are flying over the pond for a European tour!
But first, Scenic Route to Alaska will be putting out their new single. How It Feels is an impulsive indie rock song about the challenge of finding love, or even a relationship for that matter, while being caught up in the hustle and bustle of touring and life on the road.
