Sally Shaar, lead singer for the Toronto band Ginger Ale and the Monowhales, describes the band’s music as eclectic, fun but with a bite to it. Kinda like ginger ale. Kinda like the band itself. And kinda like the city they celebrate on their new single, Home.
Home was recently released and has already hit close to 170,000 views on Facebook. The song is an ode to Toronto and the accompanying video is an infectious, POV romp through some of the better known parts of the 6ix. “We picked these places that are fun and are actual places that we would go to,” says Shaar. A few of the immediately recognizable (iconic) places you will see in the video are Centre Island, Sneaky Dee’s, Kensington Market, the CN Tower and Honest Ed’s.
In describing the band’s influences and music Shaar says, “We don’t like to be put in a box. We love pop, rock, metal. We want to create something new every time.”
