New Music: Cannons – Backwards

  • New Music: Cannons - Backwards

Since forming in 2013, Los Angeles based Cannons (Michelle Joy, Paul Davis, Ryan Clapham) have been building a substantial back catalogue of quality electronic music over the last few years. On the brink of launching their fourth EP, they’ve released a specially commissioned video for new track Backwards. Check it out below.

Inhabiting a musical universe similar to that of Chromatics and CHVRCHES, the song takes indie and electro influences but permeates them with an ethereal, classic RNB inflected vocal delivery courtesy of Michelle Joy.

The arrangement balances the sensual and the melancholic, something reinforced by the sparing used of pitch shifted backing vocals and subtle beats. A guitar reverbs its way right under your skin, all lending Backwards an air that makes it the perfect soundtrack for a late-night love affair.

Backwards is out now and can be streamed on Spotify and Soundcloud. It’s also available for download via iTunes.
