Today it is with great pleasure that I OH YOU present you with Violent Soho’s fifth studio album, Everything Is A-OK, and share new single ‘Canada’.
Recorded by Australian producer Greg Wales (You Am I, Sandpit, Youth Group), Everything Is A-OK is a headlong cannonball-ride into the darkness of suburban abandonment and decay.
Dripping in their trademark punk rock style, ‘Canada’ (released today) is reflective and humble, while soaked in Boerdam’s quick witted iconic drawl. He recalls how the riff evoked a desire to escape to Canada, away from the doom and gloom scenarios he was witnessing in his every day. “I guess the main guitar riff just got me reminiscing of a holiday - and all the times we toured through Canada, and it being some sort of last remaining outpost - It’s always been like home but at the opposite end of the world.” From the raw alt-rock energy of Boerdam‘s vocals to the masterfully conducted relationship between the melodic and rhythmic guitar components, the result is a classic Violent Soho track, packed full of frustration, irony and wit.
