Published Apr 19, 2016Back in the fall, Toronto pop-rock brigade Ginger Ale & the Monowhales dropped a new video for "Looking Simple." Now, the band are set to showcase their harsher side with brand new single called "White Walls."
The band describe the new track as a "jaw-clenching, neck-breaking, maniacal journey through the darkest depths of a disturbed mind." The darker subject matter gets matched with a harder sound, as eerie piano lines, droned-out fuzz, screeching guitars and smashing drums converge to hit the listener head-on.
Expanding on the meaning behind the track, the band explains that they drew on themes of "an unfulfilled yearning for understanding, the need to escape, and the threads of one's mind coming loose one by one" while brining it to fruition.
You can hear the end result, accompanied by a static-y visualization in the player below; pay special attention just after the three-minute mark for a shocking surprise.
If you want to catch the band live, their next gig is slated for April 22 at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto.
