By Soul Filter
Summerside, PEI’s alt rock-pop group Soul Filter has released their latest single, “Quicksand Town.”
“The self-produced, high energy rock song is about trying to escape the pressure of expectations; the ones we put on ourselves and the ones put on us by society,” says the band. “Written during the pandemic, the uncertainty and isolation of the time influenced themes of feeling stuck; in time and in your own head.”
Recorded at Penton Productions and Studio Dimanche, the song was written and produced by Karen Ann Penton and John Michael Penton, and mixed and mastered by Brent Chaisson (Studio Dimanche).
Soul Filter is a four-piece band comprised of Karen Penton (vocals), Marc Robichaud (drums), Ronnie Arsenault (bass) and Mike Penton (electric guitar). Their debut album A Minor Conspiracy was nominated for Music PEI’s Rock Recording of the Year (2020). In 2022, the band released The City Knows, produced by John Angus MacDonald of The Trews, as part of Music PEI’s Golden Ticket program. The song was selected as a semi-finalist in 2022’s International Songwriting competition.
