Eric & The Soo’s latest single, the contemplative “Moneytown” examines the loneliness of a man stuck in the hamster wheel of corporate life. The scene is set against the backdrop of an ever changing urban landscape, where history and charm give way to gentrification and corporatization. Our favourite restaurants, bars, and “mom and pop” shops give way to condos, and chain restaurants. In the process, our beloved city loses pieces of its soul. And we lose a part of our soul, and a part of our history too. The brooding lyrics are backed by upbeat instrumentation giving the song a poignant, introspective feel.
Recorded by veteran engineer John Dinsmore at Toronto’s Lincoln County Social Club, the song features the talents of Ken Yoshioka on electric guitar, Tim Bradford on bass, Julian Fauth on keys, James McKie on violin, Dino Naccarato on drums, and Eric Brombacher on acoustic guitar and vocals.”It ended up having a jazzy, groovy feel, setting the perfect tone and mood to support the lyrics. I especially enjoy the interplay between the violin, keyboards, and electric guitar” relates frontman Eric Brombacher.
Written by Eric Brombacher & Ken Yoshioka, “Moneytown” guides us into the moody days of autumn with a release date of September 6th, 2022 on Eastside Confectionery Records. So sit back, press play, and enjoy the vibe, and if it gives you pause, and it makes you think, all the better.
