Sky Canvas - Single Review: Fossil

09 Oct 2018 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

Alternative Soul/hip hop 5 piece band Sky Canvas from Wellington, have released a funky new single Fossil - a rich bluesy beat infused with synth and accompanied by the strong soulful vocals of Katelin Little.


Fossil
is a jazzy number with a futuristic sound. It has many different and unique layers. A labyrinth of sound bubbling with effervescence and gripping in its complexity. This track has a depth of sound which is as absorbing as it is complex. Fossil explores the link between something that is created in the present, and how that creation becomes a relic of knowledge and inspiration in the future. Bass/Sax player Tyaan says: “It could be a work of art, scientific discovery - any form that we can use to influence and inspire beyond our own lives”

This is indeed a dynamic song guaranteed to get your body swaying. It is no wonder that Sky Canvas play to sold out events and have a solid Wellington fan base. Their sound is refreshing, interesting and energetic.

Fresh and modernistic Fossil has an abundance of groove. It is a track of surprises and delight, with powerful vocals and a tight sound.

Fossil was recorded at Surgery Studios in Wellington with Lee Prebble, mixed by Benny Tones and mastered at Metropolis Studios in London.

“If you’re into grooves, jazzy guitar, spacey keys, powerful female vocals, and a couple more grooves, look no further than Sky Canvas”. Which is: Katelin Little – Lead Vocals, Sam Nakamura Guitar/Vocals, Luther Hunt – Drums/Percussion/vocals, Tyaan Singh – Bass/Saxophone and Fraser Walker – Keyboards/synths.

Fossil has given me an introduction and an insight into a band which would be a delight to see perform live.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )
