“No Surfboard in the Saloon”

 

(Montreal, QC) – July 10, 2018. Montreal’s Neo Surf band Waveyard teams up with long time friend Kandle Osborne to create a mesmerizing debut music video for their song No Surfboard in the Saloon.

“‘No Surfboard in the Saloon’ is a song that mixes surf music with a vibe inspired by the Spaghetti Western scores of the sixties,” says Waveyard’s composer and lead guitar player David Deïas. “I imagined a big brawl confronting surfers and cowboys at a Saloon in the Wild West, when the surfers are forbidden from entering the premises with their surfboards.”

 

“The first time I heard ‘No Surfboard in the Saloon’ by Waveyard, the vision of a young woman, distraught and needing to escape, flashed through my mind,” says Kandle Osborne, who directed the music video. “I saw her dancing into the ocean, moving desperately, as if to whirl away pain, and honor a recently deceased loved one, represented by the Day of the Dead make-up. There was no budget, no crew, just passion.” she concludes.

 

The music video was directed, filmed and edited by Kandle Osborne in her hometown Victoria, BC and features professional go-go dancer Tess Ananda, who, even with a broken nose, was inspired to dance her heart out freely, while Kandle chased her with a handheld camera.

BIOGRAPHY

Kandle is the solo project of Victoria, BC native Kandle Osborne, a songstress, now-turned Montrealer, who’s elegiac and moody brand of singing and songwriting reflect a maturity well beyond her years. Having grown up listening to artists such as Tom Waits and PJ Harvey in a richly musical family, Kandle’s artistic nature found its outlet early where she devoted herself ruthlessly to visual arts, photography as well as playing and creating music; first as a teenager learning songs in the cafeteria and then eventually as a young woman, teaching herself to sing.

Her first album In Flames, was critically-acclaimed for its musical artistry, but also for the universe it created through visual pieces.

Released this past may, her new EP Damned If I Do follows in its path, and speaks to the loners and the forgotten, navigating the less-travelled corners of sound and feeling, as an uncompromising vision. Her music provides a light for the lost – ablaze and raging, illuminating the places angels fear to tread.

Kandle’s Damned If I Do was produced by: John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Phosphorescent), Sam Goldberg (Broken Social Scene) and Devon Portielje (Half Moon Run).
