For immediate releaseMontreal, April 23, 2024

Today, Corridor unveils Jump Cut, the third single off Mimi, their new album due out this Friday (April 26th, 2024) via Bonsound (Canada) and Sub Pop (rest of the world). Their long awaited fourth full-length arrives almost five years after the release of their landmark album Junior. During the summer, the band will hit up the Canadian West Coast for performances at Sled Island in Calgary (June 20th) and the Westward Festival in Vancouver (June 22nd). On October 4th, 2024, Corridor will play their first hometown show in years at Le National in Montréal.

Mimi is available for pre-order on vinyl or for pre-save on all music services.

Jump Cut is pure psychedelic bliss, with hypnotic ziggurats of guitar lines aligning themselves in the distance as Jonathan Robert and Dominic Berthiaume’s vocals duck and weave throughout the lovely chaos of the song. Through concise yet evocative lyrics, Robert – who’s also responsible for Mimi’s cover art – reflects on feeling out of touch with the omnipresence and constant evolution of technology.

Corridor’s new song is accompanied by a video combining collage and animation directed by Winston Hacking, who has worked with Flying Lotus, Run the Jewels and Andy Shauf, among others. The video reflects the song’s theme of grappling with the overwhelming influence of technology and feeling adrift in its wake, says the director. 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 a huge step forward for the band, whose members themselves have undergone the type of personal changes that accompany the passage of time. These eight songs reflect a newfound and contemplative maturity, as Corridor is branching out more than ever with music that’s richly detailed, resulting in a record that feels like a fresh break for a band that’s already established themselves as forward thinkers.

Corridor’s Mimi—which, fun fact, is 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, the album is also a record bursting with new energy and life, delivering a distinct rhythmic pulse reminiscent of classic era-post-punk’s own melding of dance and rock textures.

In the next few weeks, Corridor will embark on a tour to support their new album Mimi. The tour also includes dates in the UK, Europe, and the United States throughout the year. See the list below for all tour dates and details.
