Calgary based rock quintuplet Waterfront aims to keep the genre more than alive with their forthcoming unreleased 5 track EP produced by Quinn Cyrankiewicz of Royal Tusk fame who last produced Calling All Captains’ smash hit EP “Nothing Grows Here” and their debut album “Slowly Getting Better.”
The group’s new single “I Wanna Run (feat. Gutter King)” sees Waterfront partner with local scene veterans Gutter King who bolster a 12K monthly listening audience to solidify the groups long term goals. The single mirrors a turning point for Waterfront following their recent signing to Affiant Records and the song itself delves into the weight of the breaking away from a toxic relationship to forge a new path forward and rediscover who you are.
Having independently balanced the release of their debut and sophomore Eps across 2021 and 2022 with local performances in Western Canada.
"In a way, our new material has completely reshaped our sound. If you have listened to our previous work, this is going to be like listening to something else entirely in all the best ways. We love our past and still feel our new path forward aligns with where we’ve come from, but in a way, we are running away from things we felt didn’t work. I Wanna Run mirrors this turning point for us in that the song itself delves into the weight of breaking away from the toxicity of the wrong relationships or friendships to forge a new path forward and rediscover who you are. It is a risky decision to make; to try something complete foreign and brand new. I’ve been in relationships where you’re metaphorically beaten down and used, but I channeled that into this song. It’s easier to take it on the chin sometimes than it is ask for the respect you deserve and I feel we captured that energy and then some with this song." Dan Sequiera, lead vocals
Waterfront is now eager to bring their experiences to a new level and landscape within the industry. The band has also received regional radio play in western Canada while amassing over half a million streams across their releases with their song “Three Years Later” now nearing 200K streams alone.
