Ten Minute Detour


Ten Minute Detour

 

Brought together by the winds of change (and a few classified ads), Ten Minute Detour cut their teeth in a small, detached, heatless garage in Calgary, Alberta, where they set in place the foundation for Lay It Down, the band’s debut full-length album. Highlights from Lay It down include Four Papers and Getaway, two catchy alternative rock tracks which have helped pave the road for the band, who have played hundreds of shows across Canada.

 

In the winter of 2017, Ten Minute Detour recorded their second album in Nashville, Tennessee, teaming up with producer and former Cage the Elephant guitarist, Lincoln Parish. Their sophomore album Common Pleasure, whose seven tracks were recorded over a harrowing seven days, is a testament to the band’s maturation and growth in songwriting and storytelling, shedding the garage-rock skin and donning a more expansive, gripping, sophisticated sound. 

 

2018 was a year of change for Ten Minute Detour, seeing the release of their sophomore album, several lineup changes, and relocation from their prairie home to Southern Ontario. Ten Minute Detour navigated these turbulent waters with aplomb, however, and is poised to take 2019, Canada, and the international stage by storm.

Their new single”Bleeding Green” is a product of change. The final release of Ten Minute Detour’s inaugural lineup, the track explores the need for action and charge in the pursuit of one’s future while showcasing the band’s growth from traditional garage-rock to a more expansive, gripping, sophisticated sound.
