Toronto indie-pop outfit Ginger Ale & The Monowhales have announced their debut EP, Bang, will be out 10/14. The record’s first single “Home” and it’s accompanied video racked up over 200,000 views in seven days on Facebook, landing them some airtime on Global News, Sirius and even a shout out from the mayor of Toronto, John Tory.
“This is a record we’ve been piecing together for a long time,” says drummer Jordan Circosta. “We wanted to make something that bangs, something that clangs. Something that shows us at our happiest and most carefree, but also gives a taste of the darker side of things. We’ve had a lot of time to get to know each other and learn to make music as an ever-evolving group of friends. What you hear is the old and the new, side by side. Some of these tracks are songs we’ve been playing live for years, others have never been heard before. This is a thank you to everyone who believed in us when even we had lost hope, but this is also a nod to the future. We have a long road ahead of us, and no plans to slow down.”
