The Corner ‘The Exclaim! EP’ (album stream)

January 27, 2015

Toronto indie rock outfit the Corner are putting the finishing touches on their debut album Note to an Escapist, but the band have shared a special Exclaim!-exclusive EP in advance of the forthcoming full-length.

Since forming in 2011, the band teamed up with industry pros like Alex Bonenfant (Crystal Castles, METZ) and John Drew (Fucked Up, Tokyo Police Club) for their debut EP and recently completed recording their debut album with Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes.

But for The Exclaim! EP, the band are showcasing a different side to their sound.

Meanwhile, a mustachioed man who looks a bit like he wandered out of a retro costume party emerges from a lake and hikes through the wilderness carrying a mysterious key inside of a cage, and the band ultimately get pelted with various liquids, powers and foods.
