Corridor Shares Official Video for “Jump Cut” Directed By Winston Hacking

Corridor is releasing “Jump Cut,” an ecstatic new single that is accompanied by an absolutely bonkers, GIF-tastic official video from award-winning filmmaker and designer Winston Hacking (Flying Lotus, Run The Jewels, Andy Shauf). 
“Jump Cut” is a highlight from Mimi, the group’s forthcoming album, out this Friday, April 26th worldwide from Sub Pop and in Canada from Bonsound.
Winston Hacking offers this of the video, “Our video reflects the song’s theme of grappling with the overwhelming influence of technology and feeling adrift in its wake. Using AI to enhance archival footage resulted in a deliberate distortion, symbolizing the potential consequences of our intertwined relationship with it. It invites reflection on how technology blurs the lines of our identities and infiltrates every aspect of our lives.”
Mimi is Corridor’s first new album in four years and includes the aforementioned “Jump Cut” along with “Mon Argent,” “Mourir Demain,” and “Camera,” and was produced by Corridor and Joojoo Ashworth (Dummy, Automatic) at Studio Gamma in Montreal and mastered by Heba Kadry Mastering in Brooklyn. All songs on Mimi were composed by Corridor, with lyrics written by guitarist and vocalist Jonathan Robert.
Corridor’s Mimi—which, fun fact, is also named after Jonathan’s cat—is a record about “getting older” and “figuring out new parts of life”—but despite any claims of transitional growing pains from the band, Mimi is also a record bursting with new energy and life. The band expands on the sounds of Junior and delivers an album with a distinct rhythmic pulse reminiscent of post-punk’s own classic era of melding dance and rock textures.
Corridor’s international tour plans for 2024 to support Mimi resume May 9th in Amsterdam, NL where they will be performing a free show at Skatecafe (presented by Dr. Martens) and currently ending November 16th in Caen, FR at Le Cargö. North American tour dates are to be announced soon.

Stereogum caught the band’s live set in Austin this past March and raved, “Corridor were a formidable machine onstage Wednesday night. Performing on the Swan Dive patio at a SXSW showcase arranged by Pop Montréal and M For Montréal, the band blitzed through song after song with a contagious kinetic force, building cathedrals of sound at time-lapse speed. Waves of lysergic vocal harmonies coalesced over a pair of spiky interlocking guitars (sometimes with their capos placed so high on the neck) and a rhythm section that added an off-kilter funky jolt to your average motorik backbeat. At the center of the action, beanied and bespectacled, Dominic Berthiaume danced hard — like a composer swept up in his creation — on the handful of songs where he handed off the bass to auxiliary man Samuel Gougoux.”
Mimi is available to preorder from Sub Pop. LP preorders of the album from and select independent retailers in North America will receive the Loser Edition on Baby Pink vinyl. LP orders from Mega Mart 2 (the new, UK-based sibling site to the world-famous Sub Pop Mega Mart) and select independent retailers the UK and Europe, will receive the Loser Edition on Blue vinyl. All whilst stock lasts.
What people are saying about Corridor:
“Lead single ‘Mourir Demain’ exemplifies this – the jagged edges nod to post-punk, but there’s a sense of 60s baroque pop, too. The lilting French language vocal is intoxicating, while the slightly martial feel to the drumming underneath gives it an adde. d intensity.” CLASH
“I’d rather listen to this all day than the 300th band that wants to be the next Idles.” AUSTIN TOWN HALL
“The first single from Mimi is “Mourir Demain,” which with its prominent acoustic guitars sounds unlike anything Corridor have ever released before.” - BROOKLYN VEGAN

Girl and Girl frontperson Kai James shares: “I’d had Oh Boy! half written for a few years before we got round to recording it. I really loved the first half and had kind of psyched myself out of finishing it. When it was finally demoed early last year, this big sort of chaotic, sprawling word vomit poured out of me that seemed to tie the whole thing up nicely, it’s brimming with joy and misery and sarcasm, all things girl and girl.”
Tayla Lauren directed the video. Click HERE to watch.

 “…every member of Girl and Girl is too young to have experienced the garage rock revivalism of Y2K firsthand, save Aunty Liss, the drummer who supports her nervy nephews in this band of Australian post-punk traditionalists. Fronted by the wiry Kai James — handsome and jittery, never reclusive — the group treated sacred post-punk texts as if they were a common language when they played the 13th Floor, giving their barbed hooks and sideways riffs real kick. They’re carrying a torch without succumbing to nostalgia or formalism, all because they’re intoxicated by the noise they make.”- [SXSW 2024 Show Review] RollingStone
“The band’s circuitous riffs feel reminiscent of early Car Seat Headrest – the type of material that could mint a future cult classic.” - [10 essential new acts you need to see at SXSW 2024NME
“that’s Girl and Girl like a warped mix of Talking Heads, Rolling Blackouts and bits of post-punk but led by a man with a mullet and one of their aunts plays drums in the band. I enjoyed them, some good melodies. That was Girl and Girl with Hello.” - [SXSW Review] BBC 6 Music with Steve Lamacq
 “Brisbane four-piece Girl and Girl are ones to watch in the world of sharp-tongued raucous-riffed garage rock…Girl and Girl’s all too rare multigenerational collaboration brings a fresh angle on the post-Strokes garage rock sound.” - KUTX Radio
“Emotional mayhem that’s relatable, and very catchy.” Rolling Stone (AU)
“There’s something special about this group…Their music has a raw and unfiltered feeling which elevates it far above your run-of-the-mill “indie” and gives it a near-euphoric flavour.” - [“Hello”]  Life Without Andy
“A perfect dose of indie – punk rock at its best.” - [“Hello”] Happy Mag

Hear DEBBY FRIDAY’s New Single “To The Dancefloor”

Today, Thursday, April 18th, DEBBY FRIDAY shares “To The Dancefloor,” a new, high-powered anthem available worldwide on all DSPs through Sub Pop. The track, recorded in Toronto and Detroit, is co-produced by DEBBY FRIDAY, Graham Walsh, and Detroit’s rising ghettotech connoisseurs, HiTech.

“To The Dancefloor” is a cheeky hybrid of electronic music genres and FRIDAY’s first single release of the year. Its Sims-inspired official video, directed by DEBBY FRIDAY with camerawork by Stella Gigliotti, is a nod to online NPC trends and virtual reality games of the early 2000s.  

Of the video, DEBBY says, “I <3 the internet. I got the idea from watching Youtubers and TikTokers and thinking about how I used to spend hours playing games like Sims 3 and IMVU.”  

“To The Dancefloor” follows DEBBY FRIDAY’s 2023 release, GOOD LUCK, her acclaimed Polaris Music Prize-winning, full-length debut. The album was co-produced by DEBBY and Graham Walsh (METZ, Holy Fuck) at Candle Recording Studio in Toronto and mastered by Heba Kadry in New York. Following the Polaris win, she released the sprightly-paced “let u in” single that September.

DEBBY FRIDAY’s international tour schedule for 2024 resumes Friday, June 7th in St. Johns, Newfoundland at the Lawnya Vawnya Festival and currently runs through Thursday, August 29th - Sunday, September 1st in Dorset, UK at the End of the Road Festival. Please find a complete list of dates below.

Fri. Jun. 07 - St. Johns, NL - Lawnya Vawnya Festival

Sun. Jun. 23 - Vancouver, BC - Westward Music Festival

Fri. Jun. 28 - Toronto, ON - Toronto Pride

Fri. Jul. 19 - Sat. Jul. 21 - Yellowknife, NT - Folk On The Rocks

Fri. Aug. 30 - Eindhoven, NL - Hit The City Festival

DEBBY FRIDAY’s “To The Dancefloor,” “let u in,” and GOOD LUCK are available now worldwide from Sub Pop. 

Past praise for DEBBY FRIDAY:

“With perhaps the most confident and promising debut album of the year, the Toronto-based electronic musician Debby Friday creates an alluringly dark, industrial backdrop for her slinky self-mythologizing and galvanizing pep talks to herself. “Speak up, speak up, Friday Child,” she intones on the intention-setting opener. “Say what you came to say.” Does she ever.” [GOOD LUCK] “The Best Albums of 2023” - THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Album of the Week” [GOOD LUCK] - STEREOGUM

“GOOD LUCK is an assured and frequently surprising debut that feels like a trip into the lascivious, eclectic wormhole of Friday’s world – and with so much to take in, and so much fun to be had, you won’t want to leave.”  8/10 - CRACK

“DEBBY defies easy categorization, mixing rap, electro, post-punk, industrial, techno and more into a glitchy, bruising and bitcrushed blend that is fiery, magnetic and all her own.” [GOOD LUCK] - BROOKLYN VEGAN 

“Album of the Week” [GOOD LUCK] - TREBLE

“There’s an extraordinary elasticity across GOOD LUCK’s

masterful production that makes repeated listens not just enjoyable but irresistible.” “8/10, Album of the Week” - LOUD & QUIET

“Fans of Azealia Banks, JPEGMAFIA, SZA, Yves Tumor, and even Nine Inch Nails could all find themselves at home in her world. And soon enough, with her innovation and confidence, it seems like the rest of the world will, too.” “The Rising Artists You Need To Know” - ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“Packed into a succinct, live-wire 33-minutes, GOOD LUCK is testament to how effectively Friday can capture life in all its dense, unpredictable emotions.” - CHICAGO READER

“Welcome to Planet Debby: If you wandered into the back room 

at Empire Garage and Control Room at the right moment on Thursday afternoon, you found yourself in the middle of an interstellar rave in full swing. Toronto experimental artist Debby Friday was onstage, performing a thudding electro-rap song with hints of Azealia Banks and Donna Summer…Leaping off the stage into the small crowd, she demanded that they come closer — “I need your energy!” — and kept on chanting, 

in a long vamp that bent space and time.” “Highlights from SXSW 23, Day Three” - Rolling Stone

“In contrast to the pulse-quickening tempos and noisy synths of her past music, her production is deft and graceful, with a skipping beat and cascading backing vocals. ‘Lady Friday/All you do is rеbel,’ Friday chastises herself—tough talk against a fragile, gorgeous sound.” [“SO HARD TO TELL”]  “Best New Track” - PITCHFORK

“One of the young year’s most audacious bangers” [“SO HARD TO TELL”] - BILLBOARD

“Hyperpop can sometimes come off as abrasive but in the hands of Canadian singer DEBBY FRIDAY it’s soulful, even elegant.” [“SO HARD TO TELL”] - NYLON

“A graceful entrance into yet another territory: lush R&B”[“SO HARD TO TELL”] “Now Playing” - NPR MUSIC
