Yall should know by now that we are HUGE fans of NEW CANDYS over here at CVLT Nation. So when we heard that they were touring North America with a show in our hometown of Vancouver, BC, you know we had to tell y’all. To say that I’m stoked to see them live would be a lie because I’m SUPER STOKED to see them live! I know for a fact I’m going to get my dancing on and I MIGHT GET high as well! Join me in my celebration of all things NEW CANDYS and while you are it peep this UNREAL performance of their plus their tour poster!
I think New Candys has created my new favorite style of music. They’ve taken elements of post-punk, psych, shoegaze, dream pop, garage rock, and darkwave and swirled them into songs like “Twin Mime” that I want to hit replay on over and over again. Today I’m excited to share their really awesome video for “Twin Mine” with you–it also brings in themes I love, like our ridiculous ego and the utter destruction of feckless humanity by Mother Nature. I’m riding the riffs and floating on melodies and watching the earth rumble and crack and spew lava, it doesn’t get any better than this!Meghan, CVLT Nation
