CANVAS are an experimental rock band from the US. We managed to talk to the band over the weekend to discuss the bands latest single, their sound in general and their hopeful plans for the future!
First, congrats on your single! How was it writing and recording it? Has it been received well?
Thanks! It was one of those songs that kind of fell to us in terms of the creative process. From inception to the final product, the song writing and recording components were quite seamless. Our fans haven’t heard this kind of a funk sound from us before, but we’re happy to say it’s being received very well.
Is it going to be part of a full album or rather just a stand-alone single?
Jealousy is a stand-alone single. We realize we live in a singles-driven industry currently; however, we are working on an album slated for a 2022 release.
For our readers who aren’t familiar with your music, how would you describe yourselves?
Experimental is always the word that comes to mind first. We also aim to bring a stadium-like sound to every record we make.
How has it been for you coping over the last year and a half of restrictions? Obviously it’s been a little different where you are!
It has certainly been tough. The silver lining here is that we had more time to create music and build up our library of records. The pandemic is a big reason for the upcoming album as it gave us the extra time to conceptualize a theme and create meaningful records.
What is your favourite thing about the music business?
The Music. Least favorite: The Business.
If there was one song that you wish you could have written, what would that be?
Plans for the future?
We will be releasing our first album in 2022, which we are extremely excited about. The project will be a culmination of everything we have aspired to achieve with our sound as a band. Leading up to our album, we will be releasing singles and visuals on a consistent basis. Of course, we are also looking forward to playing live again!
