JUNO-nominated singer-songwriter Kandle’s new album, Set The Fire, will be released on May 28. That’s incredible, and something to look forward to. She reflects on the beginning of the process with her single, No Good. It’s characterized by strong vocals and soulful grooves. I’d describe the sound as creative. Among the highlights are the chorus and breakdown.
Regarding the track, Kandle says: ”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. 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 60’s 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.”
Kandle has already demonstrated her ability to create music in all genres. Songs like this are timeless. Check out No Good below!
