Vancouver’s Kandle is readying the release of her new album, Set The Fire, this summer, and today she’s shared a new track called “No Good.” Alongside the song, she’s also shared a live performance “Garden Sessions” video for the track.
Where the new track revolves around a bluesy, layered instrumental and 60s-style harmonies, the live version stays true to the overall feel of the track, but with more of an acoustic sound. The captivating video sees Kandle alongside Debra-Jean Creelman and Kendel Carson, as they deliver silky harmonies, lit by the sitting sun in the background.
“I wanted to give a sassy upbeat delivery as a stark contrast to a song which is otherwise a gloomy autobiographical portrayal of feeling like an unlovable mess,” Kandle explains of the track. “On March 10th of 2020, the day before our social liberties were taken, before going into studio quarantine with only my Producer & Engineers, I had the foresight to grab my fellow musical mystical sisters ‘The Wiccs’ (Louise Burns, Kendel Carson, Debra-Jean Creelman) to sing around one mic as homage to our favorite 60s girl groups a la the Supremes, the Shangrilas & The Ronettes. This is forever marked as the anthem to the last day of freedom, where we could eat the mic, share a whiskey sour and warm embrace without fear.”
