Winnipeg's Booter Announce Debut Album '10/10'
Listen to lead single "Call Me Upset"
Published Jul 13, 2022Winnipeg rock quartet Booter have announced plans for their debut album 10/10, arriving September 9 via Midwest Debris.
After sharing the album's lead single "Crushin'" last month, they've returned with another new track, "Call Me Upset," which "explores being a crutch for someone you'd rather not be a crutch for anymore."
"There are songs on this album that are clearly gay," lead singer and guitarist Alannah Walker said in a statement. "As more music has started coming out in the last few years where you can tell artists are queer from a lyrical standpoint, that was something that definitely inspired me."
Walker continued: "When we first started playing 'Call Me Upset' as a band we all sort of instantly knew we had something cool on our hands. The record is filled with these pretty quick-paced sugar-coated rock songs whereas CMU has this minimal, almost laid-back feeling that you can really lean into."
Produced by Cam Loepkky and mastered by Philip Shaw Bova, the 13-track record is the first project from the newly formed quartet led by Walker (one-half of indie-pop duo Cannon Bros), rounded out by Tunic frontman David Schellenberg on bass, drummer Ian Ellis and guitarist Brendon Yarish.
