Scenic Route to Alaska – Give a Little – Artwork credit: Bryan Olson
Edmonton-based indie-pop trio Scenic Route to Alaska have returned with the standout single “Give a Little”, listen + share HERE. The single is their first taste of new music before going back to work on their fifth full-length album due next year.
The catchy new song has the band revisiting its roots with a more organic, unfiltered take on their now-signature sound. The recently crowned, 2018 Western Canadian Music Award for ‘Rock Artists of the Year’ will be heading out on a Canadian tour in support of the new single. Full routing below.
The band had this to say on the inspiration of the new single:
“ ’Give a Little’ is about the tension in society today. Those moments where you turn on the news and it’s never about anything good. It’s about taking a deeper look, to question what we’re all doing to bring a little more light into the day-to-day. It’s about self-reflection and outward intention. The message that we want people to take away is to try, during their day to day lives, to practice patience and show a little more kindness to strangers, friends and neighbours.”
Over the past few years, the band – Trevor Mann on lead vocals and guitar, drummer Shea Connor, and bassist Murray Wood – worked tirelessly scaling the summit of the Canadian and international music scenes. They dropped two acclaimed LPs – 2018’s Tough Luck and 2016’s Long Walk Home – that weaved memorable melodies and catchy vocals through compelling, musically rich arrangements and earned a slew of awards and accolades on their backs. They’ve toured relentlessly across North America, Europe, and Australia and watched their global fan-base grow exponentially with each amplified chord.
