The Sole Pursuit to release “Tunnel Metaphysics” Music Video!

The Sole Pursuit to release “Tunnel Metaphysics” Music Video! THE SOLE PURSUIT today announces the upcoming release of their music video for “Tunnel Metaphysics” on May 23 2014. The song - taken from their 2013 debut “Opposing Force” - is a long standing fan-favorite, and directors Chris Hau & Lizzie Peirce have crafted a fun and beautifully shot cinematic narrative starring The Sole Pursuit themselves to accompany it.

Shot over 2 days in March throughout various Toronto locales, the piece plays out at a brisk pace, surveying the semi-fictional travails of a naïve band being duped. “Tunnel Metaphysics is a song that lyrically, in a very esoteric-inside-joke kind of way, tells the story of our band,” says singer/songwriter Kyle Dawe, “So it was important to us to have our first proper video speak to that experience, in a very exaggerated and hopefully funny way.”

Having recently released the follow up to “Opposing Force” – 2014’s “Ocean Floor” - for free on their Bandcamp page, The Sole Pursuit are in some ways eschewing the typical release cycle by shooting and releasing a video for a song from a record they have moved on from in terms of recorded output. This, according to Dawe, is part of a larger modus operandi for the band moving forward. “Our band has no reason to be confined by dates and promotional cycles in terms of what we release. As a band, we hope to be taken in totality, and the timing of this video is indicative of that.”

The video will be available to see on the bands official website as well as their Youtube. on May 23rd. Both “Opposing Force” & “Ocean Floor” are Available for download at Bandcamp.

Bio

THE SOLE PURSUIT.

"Talking about music," once said Elvis Costello, "is like dancing about architecture." Absolutely true. Nevertheless, here for you some words about Toronto band The Sole Pursuit.

Indie rock, but only in the sense that, hey, you won't feel too uncomfortable when you hear something that is decidedly just rock, or singer-songwriter-ish or straight-up pop. Their debut EP "Opposing Force" was released in 2013; 2014 will see the release of no less than 2 follow up EPs - "Ocean Floor" & "The Rate of Exchange." Lush and spare, though not always in equal measure, The Sole Pursuit.
