Having been a member of the Blue Violets and released an eponymous EP in 2012, Montreal-based songwriter Kandle is finally ready to drop her first-ever solo LP. In Flames is out on March 4 through Dare to Care Records, and you can stream it in full now on Exclaim.ca.
In Flames was primarily recorded at Vancouver's Greenhouse Studios. Neil Osborne of 54-40 — who is Kandle's father — and Sam Goldberg of Broken Social Scene served as co-producers.
The record's 11 tracks occupy dark terrain, with nearly every one of them set in a minor key. These range from the hook-filled folk-soul anthem "Demon" to the rock-injected alt-country cut "Control Me" to spookily dramatic ballads like "Baby" and "Sweet Dreams."
