Published Jan 18, 2018Following a bit of a hiatus, Kandle has returned with a new song, as well as a new record deal. Now signed to Sleepless Records, the Canadian songwriter has shared her new track "When My Body Breaks, which features guests Peter Dreimanis of July Talk and Sam Goldberg of Broken Social Scene.
The song was written and produced by Kandle, with Dreimanis lending guest vocals and regular collaborator Goldberg playing guitar on the track.
In a statement, here's how Kandle describes the song:
"When My Body Breaks" is a sombre drifters tale written on the road. A verse on a stormy highway, a chorus in a neon-lit Super 8 between towns, a bridge in a dive bar waiting to play for 50 bucks and a drink ticket. I was raised moving from town to town, an anxious, off-kilter kid with a bowl cut and a strange name desperately wanting to belong.
Now I find myself a grown, wandering nomad — serenading strangers in search of the home I've never found. There's an underlying haze of beauty in solitude where you find yourself caught between two worlds — what is and what could have been.
I must have recorded 15 versions of this song, it took the gravely soulful voice of Peter Dreimanis, the solid one take drums of Josh Trager and the dirty blues bends and tones of my longtime collaborator Sammy Goldberg Jr. before it finally felt right. One out, 9 more to go.
