Canadian trio, Scenic Route To Alaska, taps into the various existential and emotional dilemmas we face in their new LP Tough Luck. From the exhilarating opener (“How it Feels”) to slow, waltzy jams (“Lonely Nights”), the trio crafts a smooth folk rock sound that is stitched with strumming guitar strings and exquisite riffs. Whether they’re getting haunted in the romance department (“Ghost of Love”) or practicing some optimism (“Better Days”), Scenic Route To Alaska give us a bittersweet view of life:

Tough Luck came out back in March 9th and is now available everywhere. The trio is currently on tour now:
