Canary are an alt-pop duo from Nashville, Tennessee – Vocalist Kat Leverenz and Guitarist Zach Dennis, and their second single ‘i used to write you love songs’ is an emotional, chilled out indie-pop work of art. Describing an ill-fated, fading love, Leverenz’s mesmerizing vocals and Dennis’s lilting guitars convey a blissfully sad sense of calm before destroying that uneasy peace with a chorus that comes crashing in out of nowhere with a heavy blast of sound and realisation, hitting you right in your poor unsuspecting heart.
The band describe their influences ranging from Phoebe Bridgers, Cage the Elephant and Kacey Musgraves, all strong influences on ‘i used to write you love songs’, but we’d also throw in Canadian rockers Metric and some emo like Paramore in there too for the sheer strength behind their guitars and the lofty levels of heartache.
‘i used to write you love songs’ was released on Friday 29th July 2022 and you can find it on all the streaming platforms right now. You can see it on youtube below:
