Ten Minute Detour Drops Captivating New Single "Over Under"

Canadian indie rock band Ten Minute Detour releases their latest single "Over Under," produced by Marcus Paquin, ahead of their performance at Toronto's NXNE festival in June 2024.


Canadian indie rock sensation Ten Minute Detour, in collaboration with acclaimed Montreal producer Marcus Paquin (known for his work with Local Natives and The Weather Station), has released their latest single "Over Under." This track debuts ahead of their eagerly anticipated appearance at Toronto's NXNE festival in June 2024.

About Ten Minute Detour

Formed over a decade ago, Ten Minute Detour has made a name for themselves with their unique blend of indie rock infused with grainy warmth and emotional depth. The band, originally a five-piece powerhouse, has recently streamlined to a core trio: Andrew Shier (vocals, guitar), Jordan MacNeil (guitar, vocals), and Kaol Porter (bass, vocals). This shift promises a new era of innovative musical exploration, reflecting their experiences and growth as both artists and individuals.

About "Over Under"

"Over Under" captures Ten Minute Detour's live energy in a grainy, analog-tinted recording. Produced, mixed, and mastered by industry luminaries Marcus Paquin and João Carvalho, this single reflects the changes and discoveries experienced over the past few years, particularly during the pandemic.

Musical and Lyrical Themes

The single exudes a laid-back, feel-good indie groove layered with lush, soft vocal melodies, crafting a sonic experience that is both refreshing and introspective. The lyrics delve into themes of stagnation and insecurity, emotions that many have grappled with in recent years. "The pandemic surely played a part in sculpting these thematic ideas; 'Over Under' has evolved over years, encapsulating fatigue and the courage to move forward," the band explains.
