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 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: 'When My Body Breaks'

We knew there was new music in the works from Kandle, but we weren't ready for this.  'When My Body Breaks' was released earlier today and it's a stunning return from one of the most enchanting voices in music.  'When My Body Breaks' also features and incredible lineup of guest musicians, but it's certainly best described by Kandle herself:

"When My Body Breaks is a somber drifters tale written on the road. A verse on a stormy highway, a chorus in a neon lit super 8 between towns, a bridge in a dive bar waiting to play for 50 bucks and a drink ticket. From an anxious kid with a strange name moving from town to town, to a grown, wandering nomad - serenading strangers in search of the home I’ve never found, there’s an underlying haze of beauty in solitude."

The unmistakeable voice of July Talk's Peter Dreimanis is a perfect compliment to Kandle's.  They're joined by frequent collaborator Sam Goldberg of Broken Social Scene and drummer Josh Trager of the Sam Roberts band.

CoralAlana covers 'Electricity' by Lee Foss

We recently stumbled upon this cover of Lee Foss' 'Electricity', and couldn't believe our ears.  The energetic single makes quite an impression, but never like this.  This was introduced to us by Kandle Osborne, the sister and former bandmate of CoralAlana, excited to hear this new, exciting release.  While this one turns down the energy level and makes a moody piece out of 'Electricity', and shows a passionate, powerful artist in her element.  Simply put, we love it and can't wait for more...
