Kandle: Nobody Wants You Now


If you've been paying attention it's no secret that Kandle is one of our favourite artists.  She's got such a unique, beautiful voice, and it's always centered in a dark and grimy sound.  Combine that with the raw edge she possesses as a songwriter, and you have something amazing that just doesn't happen anywhere else but on her records.  'Nobody Wants You Now' is one of the boldest tracks from Holy Smoke, her latest and in our opinion, greatest record so far.  In this song and video she's sticking up for victims of abuse everywhere and to hold abusers accountable, no matter how famous they might be.  It's directed by Emma Higgins, edited by Jessica Graore, with art direction by Maya Fuhr.  This powerful song, an the incredibly impactful video are profound reminders that Kandle is more than just an artist we want the world to hear, she's one that everyone should really listen to...

Kandle Presents The Impeccable New Album 'Holy Smoke'

Some artists just stand out from the very first time you hear them.  Often mere moments into that first song you can sense just a bit of what they're about, and it's enough to grab your attention and lead you into their world.  While Kandle did so with her first release, she's poised to do that with the entire world with the release of Holy Smoke.  The album has been  987 days 16 hrs and 6 seconds in the making, and it's been met with excitement from her fans, and an enchanting sense of discovery from new listeners.

You can stream Holy Smoke in full below, and get it on vinyl from Sleepless Records.  While there are a wide variety of new albums out today, Kandle's truly stands out.  She's bold, and brave, and unlike any other artist we've heard before.  Do yourself a favour and take a listen, it'll soon become clear; where there's smoke, there's fire.


Kandle announces 'Holy Smoke' and debuts 'Child of Fate'

Kandle has all kinds of great new stuff for you to check out.  She's just announced her new album entitled Holy Smoke, and released the new single 'Child of Fate'.  The album is out September 28th, and will include a handful of tracks from the Damned If I Do EP including the huge track 'When My Body Breaks'.  'Child of Fate' fits right in with this ominous, dark, yet beautiful music, and yet it stands out in her catalogue.  She does something with her voice we've never heard before, and manages to stretch the very idea of the guitar solo into something wild and unpredictable.  The same words could be used to describe her music in a general sense.  We can't wait for Holy Smoke, and whatever else she comes up with like her recent appearance in Jack White's video for 'Corporation'.

Kandle presents 'Damned If I Do'

Kandle has just released her new EP Damned If I Do, and it's definitely been worth the wait.  The singles 'When My Body Breaks' with Peter from July Talk, and 'Bender' led the way, and the 5 track EP was just released today.  Kandle's enchanting voice stands out in the world of modern music, something beautiful and bright shining in the darkness.  The same could be said of her songs, wonderfully written, but with an ominous edge.  Take a listen to Damned If I Do below, and check out the video for 'Bender'



Kandle presents 'Bender'

Kandle's music has always felt like a light in the darkness, but that takes on a whole new level in the new song 'Bender'.  If the title makes you think this will be a party jam about drinking and drugs, you'll find in fact it's quite the opposite.  This song is about a forced reliance on medication, and the toll it can take on the body and the mind.  The video is visually reminiscent of a classic horror film, and feels like the tiniest glimpse at how it must feel to dance on the edge of hysteria.  Kandle performs some kind of alchemy, taking the pain and transforming it into something powerful.  'Bender' is directed by Kat Webber, produced by John Agnello, and features Sam Goldberg.  Watch it below and be sure to get Damned If I Do on May 11.
