Scenic Route to Alaska packs the house with peppy pop rock

It was great to see the Slice packed for  the return of Edmonton indie rock trio Scenic Route to Alaska, Wednesday, Oct. 4.Scenic Route To Alaska’s Trevor Mann at the Slice, Oct. 4. Photo By Richard Amery
I missed their last visit early in the year, but was glad I caught their show this time.

They played a solid set of scrappy alt country, indie pop ear worms along the lines of the Jayhawks, through frontman/ guitarist Trevor Mann’s plaintive tenor voice sounded a little like a more introspective Myles Goodwyn of April Wine.

 Some of their songs sounded vaguely familiar , coming from their previous four albums, but I think a lot of the set was new material. They wound it down around 11 p.m. with crowd favourite “Coming Back.”
 They played their new single “Slow Down” in the middle of their set.
