JUNO-nominated artist Kandle Osborne is back to announce a series of stripped-back performances called Set The Fire Live at Hipposonic.
The special series of live videos will feature a release each Thursday over the next five weeks. Throughout the series, Kandle performs Set The Fire tracks with her friends and family. These stripped-down performances see Kandle joined by Kendel Carson (Alan Doyle), Debra-Jean Creelman (Mother Mother), Louise Burns (Lillix, Gold & Youth), and even her father, Neil Osborne (54-40). Today, Kandle has shared the Live at Hipposonic version of “Sweet Boy.”
“Kandle’s latest album, Set The Fire, pays homage sonically to many of the great classic singers and styles that have been fundamental inspirations for her,” director and editor Jeff Mitchell explains. “I wanted to lean into that feeling of a nostalgic, bygone era with the visual language. Bare bulbs, golden hues, and vintage cinema glass were all ingredients of the feeling I was trying to cultivate. I really wanted the viewer to feel like they were in the room for the session and eschewed the traditional solidity of sliders, stabilizers and tripods for a more free-roaming, handheld style. The session was shot on 2x anomorphic lenses, and I extended the already wide image area even further to give the illusion of being truly amongst and surrounded by the musicians in their natural habitat.”

“This record is a metaphorical portrayal of my life in quantum time and in parallel universes,” Kandle explains of Set The Fire. “And thanks to Brandon, it’s become a cohesive collection of short films to express the happenings of my inner world.”
Kandle recently took part in our recurring Live From Home series. In the clip, she takes to a warm setting with Mother Mother’s Debra-Jean Creelman and Kendel Carson of Alan Doyle. Throughout the video, she delivers a stunning stripped-back, strings-based rendition of the tune.
