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.
