MS MR and CHVRCHES fans, take a listen to “Camilla” by Candy Says and you won’t be disappointed. Candy Says will be releasing their fantastic single on May 28 with their debut album but above is one of the strangest videos ever but rather intriguing. The synthy indie pop on this track is what I like to label “new indie” since a lot of indie bands these days incorporate lots of synth. “Camilla” is taken off of Candy Says’ upcoming album Not Kings which consists of 12 tracks. The initial instrumental part has this tiny guitar rift bit that I honestly love so much because it sends chills down my spine.
I got to listen to Not Kings recently and it’s a very diverse album. There are some other songs similar to “Camilla” but there’s a carnival-esque quality to the tracks on the album. They’re fun but a bit eerie, especially some of the slow tracks on the album. If you are an EDM kind of person, “Dreamers” is a fast-paced electronica track and singer Juju Sophie’s vocals sound stunning on the track.

Thank you thank you thank you!!! What a great review. So glad you enjoyed it. xxx
We’re pretty damned excited to be sharing a bill with Bleech and Islet, two of our favourite bands. If you’re within a couple of hundred miles of Wakefield you should seriously think about getting to Long Division in September.
Tickets went on sale this morning and they tend to sell out well in advance of the event, so head over to the Long Division website and buy some!
We’re playing on the Saturday, but we’ve also been asked to talk about F**ck The Radio with Miranda at the literary festival on the Sunday. So let’s make a weekend of it…
““We are Candy Says, we spent a year recording an album in our garage, and we are going to attempt to play it,” says smiling frontwoman Julia ‘Juju’ Sophie Heslop. And with that, she dives into a set which rollercoasts between swaying, melodic low-fi pop, rhythmic Velvet Underground-style art-rock, dance-pop, synthwave, chanson — sung faultlessly in French by our Francophile (and, lest we forget, half-Gallic) frontwoman — and heart-warming tenderness.”
We sold a few more copies of our book on tour, and it reminded me how incredible it is that Miranda wrote with such insight about our experiences without having lived them, just by listening to our rambling accounts of life as a band. A true feat of empathy.

Starting to see some photos from the tour – here’s us in Glasgow rocking the rag-tag look. Please note the Transicord attached to Ben’s shoulders with guitar straps and shoelaces.
