With the release of the "Tell Me How You're Doing!" single, Berner Trail takes a new approach to an anthemic rock feel that embeds a powerful hook and an unstoppable energy.
"Tell Me How You're Doing is lyrically a last-ditch effort to communicate with a lost person. Musically, the song toes the line between Garage Rock and Classic rock sensibilities. Musically and lyrically the song is locked in a sparring match with the message bubbling underneath." explains the band of their single
Berner Trail is a trio that have gone through several lineup changes but ultimately began with two friends who grew up together and eventually moved away after elementary school.
After they reconvened in the final months of high school, they decided to create the band together with just drums and guitar (with vocals coming later).
It wasn't long after they started that they realized they were onto something special and stuck with it.
"Art is an insight into the mind and perspective of the artist. Being from Scarborough (the shadow to Toronto’s eastern border), we find song writing solace towing the line between the bleakness and beauty of our surroundings. To be a little less fanciful, Scarborough’s a shithole, but it’s our shithole and its home. If you wander around long enough you’ll start to see its charm and pockets of beauty." explains the band of their inspiration for song writing.
The band went through several line-up changes over the years, finally concluding their search with the addition of powerhouse bassist Nate Murray in 2020 and coming from different backgrounds musically, Nate, Spencer and Aaron utilized bringing their unique influences to the sound of the band and began creating songs that formed a staple feel for themselves.
After the release of their previous single "Sleep till the Afternoon" the band gained some praise and the brand new "Tell Me How You're Doing" is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now.
