Brighton based quintet Canned Pineapple shares the beguiling yet effortlessly infectious new single ‘Bowie’.
Self labelling their music as ‘scuzz-pop’ the new single showcases a post-punk aesthetic whilst encompassing elements of indie-rock and even an undertone of country with it’s choice of guitar parts and swinging, shuffling drums. Topped with the lazy yet effortlessly charismatic vocals of lead vocalist Sean, the track is given a catchy central hook to propel the track forwards with a sense of purpose.
A tongue-in-cheek ode to David Bowie, the track’s witty storytelling lyricism drops references whilst retaining a sincerity for the band’s admiration. Talking about the track, lead singer Sean explains:
“Bowie marks the transition between old and new gearing the audience up for the next era of Canned Pineapple, Bowie is a reflection upon the last time singer Sean Drury ever got his haircut in a barbers. He had taken a strong dose of LSD and decided it was time to get his haircut. When the barber’s blade touched Drurys head, the news came that David Bowie had passed to the other side, sending Sean into a deep dark despair.
This track is a first person perspective on this unique adventure.”
Canned Pineapple has already made a mark with their self-titled debut EP and a string of successful live shows across the UK and Ireland. From conquering grassroots venues to sharing stages with notable acts like The Wedding Present and Blood Red Shoes, the band continues to solidify their presence in the indie scene.
With an upcoming EP on the horizon, the band look to continue their gradual rise.
