Canada’s T-Rex Marathon Premiere Political Video “Faux News” Off New Album “Days Without Incident”

Ottawa’s punk/post-hardcore act T-Rex Marathon released their debut album “Days Without Incident” on October 16th. On the full length, the band wrote a track entitled “Faux News”. The band wouldn’t call themselves very political, but this song to them is an exception. Bassist Jeremy Toppings wrote the lyrics to the track when he was on vacation in the US a few years ago and it didn’t take very long after that for the band to build a melody around them. More or less, “Faux News” is voicing concern to the tense political climate of the band’s neighbours to the south are finding themselves in along with the rest of the western world.

Gotts Street Park ‘Ivory’

This is taken from their EP ‘Volume Two’ which is is coming out on Blue Flowers on 27th November + will be available on vinyl 15th January 2021.

The EP features guest vocals from Rosie Lowe, Pip Millet, Grand Pax, Zilo and more.

Sonically, ‘Volume 2’ is a lighter, more optimistic offering than its predecessor though it retains the band’s smokey, inimitable trademark brew of soul, hip hop, R&B and Jazz. Speaking on the forthcoming EP, the band’s Josh Crocker explains, “There is this kind of dark, mysterious thing that we do a lot that works.” He continues, “like the song we’ve done with Grand Pax, for example – it’s got that kind of witchy darkness to it. I think if you do a really straight male soul voice, it can be a bit cheesy and sound like you’ve heard it a million times before.”
