Toronto-based alt-pop group, The Balconies, will be releasing their brand new self-produced record, Rhonda, later this year, and today the band has shared the a new video for their brand new single “War”. Watch it below. The album is available for pre-order now.
Set for release on October 14th, Rhonda explores a myriad of musical and thematic material about its fictional heroine title character. A story of hope, self-discovery, and the struggle for authenticity in a saturated world will resonate with both music fans and artists alike.
“We had such an amazing time making this record and I can’t believe that we finally get to start sharing it with everyone,” comments band member, Liam Jaeger. “War” is the first track on the album and really sets the tone so it was a natural choice to lead with.” Jacquie Neville continues, “We wanted to depict how Western culture’s forced ideologies and criticism impact the mind. What seemed to be a battle between the self and society has now evolved into the battle with oneself.”
The Balconies – Jacquie Neville and Liam Jaeger – formed in 2008. Their undeniably kinetic performance style, meshing diverse influences like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Duran Duran, and New Order, has seen the band on stages across Canada, the US, and Europe. After maintaining a tireless international touring schedule for seven years, they took a break to work on the new material that would form Rhonda.
