Introducing Canyon from Australia and their unconventional, but awesome approach of releasing five singles leading up to their EP, but with an artistic twist – each single will have an accompanying artwork from the artist Nate Hill. As you can find on their Instagram, this artist has a very distinct style that compliments the music and mysticism of Canyon, this isn’t just about putting out music, Canyon are revealing art.
The first of these singles is the chompy and replayable “Insane,” a song about questioning authority, society and normalcy and allowing ourselves to find freedom in a bit of chaos. A song that formed as a warmup jam for the band when they started in 2017 and evolved throughout their practices and live performances into a fully realized song. It certainly prepares the space for the following songs, but in no way should it be expected to be quite the same – each song will be a standalone story tied together by color imagery and phases of thought that carry us through our lives and help us navigate the absurdity of the internet and real life. The band name represents the void created by modern living and digital advances, pushing artists into a hole that they must dig themselves out of before they can get anywhere.
It’s a heady work with a ballsy approach.
Canyon debuted their live show in Aug 2019 to a full room at The Old Bar in Melbourne and immediately went on to record five tracks with Nic Pallet Of Home Brewed Studios in Lilydale, Melbourne. (Producer – Dr. Colossus, Duneeater, The Great Emu War Casualties)
The songs were recorded over three days, mixed by Nic Pallet and mastered by Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Shihad, COG, The Butterfly Effect).
Keep your eyes peeled if you’re a fan of Mastodon, Meshuggah, COG, Shihad, Rage Against The Machine, The Ocean Collective, Karnivool, A Perfect Circle, Porcupine Tree, TOOL, Alice in Chains, Kyuss, System of A Down, Leprous, Soundgarden, RHCP or Tesseract. A versatile list of influences for a creative projective.
More music and art coming.
