Candy Says

Bis dahin tanzen wir zu einem sehr geschmackvollen Pop-Song: “Favourite Flavour”.

Breitband - Elektro-Boogie und süßer DIY-Pop

Just noticed that we had two tracks featured on a playlist for a German blog (Breitband). Google Translate assures me that it’s all positive, but if anyone fancies translating it properly we’d love to know what it really means.

In the meantime I’m just going to amuse myself by listening to Favourite Flavour, waiting for it to finish, then saying “Mmm… geschmackvollen.”

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.

Here at Candy Says we see ourselves as a responsible multimedia megabrand, and our core aims and values include such diverse elements as putting music in your ears and impressing you with up-to-the-minute, of-the-moment, right-now marketing.

To prove our commitment to these goals, we’ve not only launched a piece of video content, but we’ve simultaneously and internationally premièred the matching audio content. AKA we’ve put Camilla up on Soundcloud.

And in case you were thinking of holding your tape deck up to the computer speakers and recording Camilla over and over again on both sides of a tape to listen to on repeat until the album comes out, don’t bother. We’ve added it to the three existing preview tracks on the album pre-order. Which means that if you pre-order the album you can download Camilla right now – no home taping necessary. If you’ve already pre-ordered and downloaded the preview tracks, just use the download link in your Bandcamp receipt email to download them again. Or the link on your Bandcamp collection page. Or email me.

For the experiential marketing version of this message, please ask a friend to read it out to you when you least expect it. And don’t forget to hashtag the hashtag! #CamillaByCandySaysOMGLoveIt
