TUNE Corridor - Domino (Radio Edit)
You can now hear Corridor’s “Domino,” a new single and insistent highlight from Junior, their brand new album. The band’s inventive genius is on full display here, showcasing what might be their best trick – creating singular tunes that are purposeful, full of songcraft, even as they let loose, slip their collar.
Corridor's Jonathan Robert had this to say of the song, "People are often glorifying what being an artist or a musician can mean. Art doesn’t necessarily make you a better person. There can be angst, stress and so on. It can have a negative, direct impact on the people closest to you. 'Domino' is about navigating just that. It is the first song out of Junior that we’ve composed and we’ve played it live quite a few times already."
Corridor has added new dates to its international tour schedule in support of Junior, which includes a headline show at London’s Waiting Room on 6th November.
What people are saying about Corridor:
“shaggy but tightly composed, chiming guitars gradually building momentum and adding layers upon layers. With all that towering confidence, despite being delivered in entirely in French, it feels like reaching toward the sun.” [“Topographe”] - Stereogum
“Despite being sung entirely in french, ‘Topographe’ proves there’s more to music than the lyrics. It has an ethereal magnetism. Throughout this sheer beauty of a track it’s easy to find yourself lost amongst endless waves of hypnotic, jangly guitar and choral bliss. That is until the song is over and you wonder where your mind has been this whole time.” [“Topographe”] - Clash
“A mesmerising guitar-heavy indie bop from Sub Pop’s first Francophone signing, it’s delivered with their signature layer of harmonies and jangly guitar sounds, to create a soaring and rousing track.’ [“Topographe”] - DIY
“‘Topographe’ uses their distinctive style — fractal guitar patterns, rich harmonies — to soaring effect.” - Brooklyn Vegan
“‘Topographe’ is a breakneck gallop centered around jittering and jangling guitars, propulsive drumming, and reverb-drenched call and response vocals. It’s a muscular swoon that seems to evoke the fluttering pangs of first love. And while being a remarkably urgent track, the song possesses a timeless quality because it’s a deliberately crafted bit of material that also liberally borrows from several decades of rock — particularly, jangle pop, shoegaze, psych rock and so on.” - Joy of Violent Movement
“The Montreal band Corridor knows how to highlight its strengths while getting in and out of a song with maximum efficiency: Sung in French, "Coup d'épée" only needs a little more than two minutes to let its robust guitar sound — a kind of weaponized jangle — fully worm its way in your head.” ["Coup d'épée" / Supermercado] - NPR Music
“Supermercado is the best French record of 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and even 2022 (for all we know, at least, since I doubt the Earth will explode exactly at midnight on January 1, 2022, even if it's a possibility we shouldn't ignore).” - Vice
“Their jangly, synth-pop-tinged sound will entrance fans of the genre and post-punk newbies alike. On their latest LP, Supermercado, post-punk fans will gravitate towards their tight, neat percussion and spasmodic guitars while others will get lost in their bright vocals and spellbinding soundscapes.” [Supermercado] - PASTE
