To end the year on a high note, Corridor unveils a music video for Domino. The track is off their album Junior, which was released last year on Bonsound (Canada) and Sub Pop (rest of the world). First released as a single back in the fall of 2019, the catchy, jangly track has been described as a mighty guitar pop epic by British media outlet Clash Magazine.
Directed by Jonathan Robert, who plays guitar and sings in the Montreal-based band, the animated video premiered earlier today on Brooklyn Vegan. Domino illustrates the link between work and mental health, as well as that link’s negative impact on the people surrounding us, explains Jonathan. That’s why it made sense to film ourselves breaking stuff for this video. Then I spent some time with the footage to experiment with the treatment and the editing.
Watch and share the music video for Domino via YouTube.
Junior is available on all music services and on vinyl.
Although Corridor had to abruptly end their U.S. tour last March and cancel or postpone multiple shows including Green Man Festival, FEQ, La Route du Rock and Pukkelpop Festival due to obvious reasons, 2020 was still a rewarding year for the band. In addition to being nominated twice at this year’s ADISQ Gala and their album Junior being long-listed for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize, Corridor just won two trophies at the GAMIQ awards, for Indie Rock Album of the Year and Music Video of the Year (for Topographe, also directed by Jonathan Robert).
