Canary Lock in Geelong Show

Ah, the ol’ self­ destructive break­ up. Sing out some Cure lyrics if you’ve been there.

Canary’s Matthew Kenneally was battling his break­ up demons when he began writing the band’s sophomore album, I Am Lion.

“I was the cognitive distortions and thoughts and feelings I was writing about, or at least I thought I was,” the songwriter explains. “The process served to further cement this fusion of my identity with the bad thoughts I was having and the emotions I was feeling.”

The album is the follow­ up to 2012’s self­ produced Dear Universe and was produced by Greg Walker of Machine Translations and mixed by band bassist, Isaac Barter.
