Onionface Rebadge Prog Rock For Modern Times Wiith ‘Roll Over, Dog…And Run!’

Onionface have released their new album, ‘Roll Over, Dog…And Run!’ Comprising ten rocking tracks, the alt-rock trio from Ottawa take their cues from The Ramones and then infuse their sound with its very own style.

At first glance Onionface appear to have come from another time – prog-rockers from the 60s and 70s – but a second look reveals them to be very astute social commentators. Tracks such as ‘Goodbye, Take Care’, opens with a Beach Boys/Beatlesesque harmony, and resounds with thought provoking lyricism:

“You’ve gotta make up your mind
Just a little bit of loving lasts a long long time

“You’ve gotta make up your mind
Designer label doesn’t matter when it’s not your size”

One of the standout tracks in our mind is ‘I’m Alright’: a musically complex song with throbbingly strong bass keeping time with the drums; one foot on the Wah Pedal pulling the guitar in and out in a wave-like sequence. The music is where it’s at with Onionface, they are skilled instrumentalists and it shows.

Comprising Stefan Jurewicz on guitars and vocals, Calvin McCormick on bass, backing vocals and lap steel, and Jon Schultz on drums, percussion, and other vocals, Onionface won’t fail to impress. You can stream and download ‘Roll Over, Dog…And Run!’ by following this hyperurl.
