Bio

At the very dawn of time, when the earth was just a star, a large bearded man placed an egg in the blackness. That egg was Mind Canary.

Upon hatching, the giant yellow bird did summon forth a guitar, and did play into existence the great symphony of life.

After composing all that is and ever will be the canary did lay to rest for a billion years in the belly of the earth.

Now! Arisen from slumber and incarnated the canary begins the next stage in the quest for spiritual enlightenment and metaphysical self-actualization against a nightmarish landscape of apocalyptic doom.

I feel a sense of nostalgia with this track. It reminds me of being a kid back in England and going down to the fairground with my mates in the summertime with the "circus -style" keys section. Although if you really listen to the lyrics you feel a bit lovelorn and tender. It will squeeze the heart of anyone who’s ever been in love, and especially those who’ve later felt theirs break. The backing vocals work beautifully with the lead it has a very "Mystery Jets feat. Laura Marling" feel to it. Great work!

One of the most exciting indie bands to emerge in recent years, Mind Canary experiment with catchy pop, dark indie and psychedelia in 'Jukebox By The Bay'. Its twitchy guitars trace delicate motifs, while purposeful percussion maintains the song’s course and backing vocals lend additional textural depth.

If you don't find this tune as rejuvenating as a wash of zesty orange juice over a crushing hangover then you’re beyond help!
