Kanyon is a soulful, psychedelic rock band hailing from the rain-drenched shores of Canada's west coast. Their sophomore EP, 'Relics Left Behind' (to be released Dec 7), has a spacey, eclectic sound that meanders through lush melodies, pop-infused hooks, and textured break-downs. In 'Until There Was You', fuzzy, phased-out guitars underscore a Prince-like mantra echoing Funkadelic and Lenny Kravitz.

Through shimmering guitars, soulful bass lines, and soaring vocals, 'Relics Left Behind' evokes a musical era gone by; paying homage to 60s and 70s rock while remaining entirely unique and hard to define.

‘Relics Left Behind’ is available on all streaming now.


Released today, “Until There Was You” is a new single from Canadian psych-rockers Kin Kanyon, who will be releasing their sophomore EP Relics Left Behind in early December. They incorporate a love for ’60s and ’70s rock with new, creative ideas, as evident on “Until There Was You.” This one starts with warbling and soaring vocals, which show a smooth Prince-like charisma upon the soulful croon at 00:35. The vocals remain a strong force throughout, even as mounting guitars increase in prominence as the track progresses. The final minute or so unveils a lusher exterior, as the vocals plead “don’t hide your love from me.” It’s a satisfying finale to a smooth-flowing, confident success.
