Vancouver alternative rock band Sonic Break are made up of brothers Rory and Jamie Mackay, who are both on vocals and guitar, as well as Ryan Grohn, who plays the drum, and Ashish Shenoy, who contributes backing vocals and plays the bass guitar. They have just released their first single of 2020 titled ‘Spaceman‘ to rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
Their musical style can best described as a distinct blend of their original alt rock edge, with upbeat indie pop sensibilities, as well as some grunge influences, to create their own unique take on alternative rock, which leads their new single ‘Spaceman‘, and which we can expect to hear from their debut EP Is This An Intervention? which comes out later this year.
Their live music experiences have also not gone unnoticed, with renowned talent agency Live Acts Canada signing them up, on the back of the band making a name for themselves up and down the Vancouver live music scene for their searing leads, body-moving instrumentation, catchy melodies, and memorable lyrics, as they performed their debut single ‘Collide‘, which was released last year, and went on to garner over 50,000 streams on Spotify.
According to the band, their new single ‘Spaceman‘ sees them, “making a conscious effort to write music designed to make the listener feel good, and as soon as that first guitar riff hit, we immediately knew we had something special. ‘Spaceman’ is about that person you know in your life, who is bursting with potential, yet has been struggling. It is an upbeat and hopeful song that chronicles that person’s refusal to let failure stand in the way of their dreams and the inspiration that everyone around them experiences in the event of their ultimate meteoric rise”.
