New York-based alt rock trio CANVAS has recently released a new single titled “Jealousy.” With their soaring vocals and driving distorted guitar sound, CANVAS has been favorably compared to other rock contemporaries such as Mariana’s Trench and Muse. Living up to their experimental ways, the band melds sounds of Western-roots rock and old-school funk on this release. Lead singer Jerid Nowell’s vocals dance through steady guitars, a funky bassline and triumphant trumpets in what many fans may deem a new sound for the alt-rock trio.
The emerging alt-rock trio consists of singer-songwriter Jerid Nowell, Billboard-charting producer/keyboardist Daniel Glavin, and drummer Jesse Rothman. Their divergent roots (influenced by bluegrass, folk, punk/metal and hip hop) have sparked a musical journey ranging from triumphant anthems to soulful ballads, and edgy fusions of alternative pop, rock and funk. When describing their creative process, the band states, “Our approach is different for every song. We are focused on bending genres and blending electronic/acoustic production to achieve an ever-evolving hybrid sound. We believe nothing is certain, including creation.”
On writing this record, Nowell says, “Jealousy symbolizes the moment in our minds when we lose ourselves to the buried emotions that we tend to deny are there. It references the decisions we make at weak points in our lives that we know are less dignified, yet we make them anyway to regain any semblance of control.”
CANVAS has also released “Jealousy” on YouTube that includes a full visual rundown of the lyrics which can be seen below. CANVAS has built up a loyal fan base in New York City, and their music has been streamed over 250,000 times across platforms and operate their own record label and recording studio Penthouse Studios. With their new single “Jealousy,” CANVAS lives up to their self-proclamation: Genreless, Timeless, and Relentless.
