Corridor

Wednesday, December 11, 2019, 4:00 AM


Corridor began when Jonathan Robert, Julian Perreault, & former drummer Marc-andre Chapdelaine started jamming together in 2012. Though it wasnt until bassist & longtime friend Dominic Berthiaume joined the band later that year that they began calling the band Corridor. In November 2013 the band delivered Un Magicien En Toi (tr. A Magician in You), a motorik guitar-pop record.On the heels of this first EP, Corridor re-entered the studio in June of 2014 to work on their first full-length record. Collaborating with producer Emmanuel Ethier, the band spent nearly a year perfecting what would be their structured and assertive LP, Le Voyage Eternel (tr. The Eternal Voyage). While they labored on the record, they were also each invested in their own creative pursuits. Singer and guitarist Jonathan dove into his animation and illustration work (This would later prove useful as he has assumed the role of the bands creative director, setting the tone for the visual aesthetics of their records and videos); Dominic began writing as a music journalist and photographer for outlets in Canada; And Julian continued pursuing an environmental design career, working on installations for well-known music festivals.In the spring of 2015, the group released Le Voyage Eternel via Loeil du tigre Records, and plans for their first European tour began to take shape. Marc-Andre departed the band shortly after the records release and was replaced by current drummer Julien Bakvis. Julien, like his bandmates, works in visual arts as a co-owner of a screen-printing shop in Montreal. This group (Jonathan Robert, Julian Perreault, Dominic Berthiaume, and Julien Bakvis), has become the permanent lineup of the band. That year Corridor toured Europe for the first time, including a show in Paris promoted by La Souterraine where they met the mystic psych-pop outfit Halo Maud (with whom they would later collaborate on the single Deux Coeurs (tr. Two Hearts).2016 was predominantly spent writing and recording. Corridor returned to the studio with Emmanuel Ethier to record their follow-up LP Supermercado (tr. Supermarket). Repetition, progression, and minimalist rhythms would be the core of Supermercado, with melodic counterpoints coming together to form exhilarating sonic mosaics. The cult success of the album allowed Corridor to return to Europe, as well as make their first foray into the United States at SXSW 2018.Corridor will release their Sub Pop debut later this year.
