Vancouver based Sonic Break are an thrilling alternative rock band that are garnering attention for driving their own unique slant of alternative rock. Abundantly evident on their brand new single titled ‘Spaceman’ is their achievement to blend their original alt rock edge, with upbeat indie pop sensibilities and accessibility. ‘Spaceman‘ is the first offering from the forthcoming debut EP Is This An Intervention? of the 4-piece band, led by brothers Rory (vocals and lead guitar) and Jamie Mackay (vocals and rhythm guitar), alongside Ryan Grohn on drums, and Ashish Shenoy on backing vocals and bass guitar.
Sonic Break came strong into the Canadian rock music scene last year with their excellent debut single ‘Collide’, which hit over 50,000 streams on Spotify, and led to the exciting 4-piece band setting live gigs all around Vancouver, before getting signed by renowned talent agency Live Acts Canada. Their sound is described as diverse and distinct, which is a melting pot of grunge, rock, and pop music influences, while offering a rocking live performance experience that is brimming with searing leads, body-moving instrumentation, catchy melodies, and memorable lyrics.
Acclaimed Canadian music producer Darren Grahn, who has previously worked with rock legends such as Metallica, Bon Jovi, and Motley Crue, among others, has joined Sonic Break for their new single ‘Spaceman’, . With Grahn’s support, Sonic Break have delivered an exciting indie rock jam, embellished with lush indie pop sensibilities, rich vocal harmonies, captivating guitar and drum arrangements. The lyrics follow in the same vein, with its hopeful and life-affirming message of not letting setbacks stop you from following your dreams.
Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Spaceman’, Sonic Break say, “we were making a conscious effort to write music designed to make the listener feel good, and as soon as that first guitar riff hit, we immediately knew we had something special. ‘Spaceman’ is about that person you know in your life, who is bursting with potential, yet has been struggling. It is an upbeat and hopeful song that chronicles that person’s refusal to let failure stand in the way of their dreams and the inspiration that everyone around them experiences in the event of their ultimate meteoric rise”.
