๐ŸŽง Kandle – ‘Spell’

Back in early May, we told you about two new singles from Montreal songstress Kandle Osborne. Well, the singer/songwriter has since released her new record, Stick Around And Find Out and we couldn’t wait to tell you about it here at The iM.

“While her new Stick Around and Find Out EP, may have been recorded under extraordinary circumstances (homeless and waiting out her legal troubles), Kandle streamlined her focus and vision. She steps into her self worth with the confidence of a true veteran who is capable of taking any situation and finding an opportunity for a deeper emotional connection. If her past has provided catharsis, her future is all about empowerment.”

Check out our favourite album cut, Spell in the embed below and be sure to follow her at the social links below. As far as we’re concerned, one can never have enough Kandle in their life.

๐Ÿ“น Mav Karlo – ‘Elevator’

Menno Versteeg is no stranger to the Canadian music scene. He’s the co-founder of Royal Mountain Records, member of supergroup Anyway Gang, he fronted Ottawa indie-rockers Hollerado and also has a solo project under the Mav Karlo moniker. Just recently he released a new single (and video) and we want you to know about it.

Whether itโ€™s a hypomanic episode or a depression, the feeling at the time is so all encompassing and real that it seems like that is the only reality that I have ever known. I relish the times in between, the periods of stillness when Iโ€™m able to be fully present in the moment and able to interact with my environment and the people in my life with the confidence that comes with being in equilibrium.

Check out Elevator featuring Katy Goodman of Vivian Girls in the embed below and be sure to hit up his socials for more. And, while we have your attention, check out another single, a cover of Weaves song Walkaway, here.

๐ŸŽง Callum Pitt – ‘Fault Lines’

We recently came across Newcastle singer/songwriter Callum Pitt and we’re certainly glad we did. His latest single is a rather infectious number that blends elements of folk, pop and alternative to create an incredibly cohesive sound.

The song “is directed at the UK government and right-wing press who have incited hatred and division in the public through their rhetoric over the past few years in particular.”

๐Ÿ“น TBT: Think About Life – ‘Sweet Sixteen’ (2009)

Back in the early days of The iM, you would often find the music of Montreal indie-rockers Think About Life playing somewhere… whether it was in the car, at home or during our online radio broadcasts.

Many bands defined the sound of The iM when we first started back in 2009 and these guys were definitely one of them. Their music never gets old and in our eyes, will forever be an important part of the Canadian musical landscape.

Check out our favourite album cut Sweet Sixteen, from their second album Family, in the embed below. You can also follow them over on their socials to show your support. The guys came out of hiding over the last couple of years to play a few shows… maybe we’ll hear from them again?
