Victoria, BC’s Carmanah have a new single, “As I See You”, which dropped last Friday.
This latest single comes ahead of the band’s currently unnamed new record which is due out at some point this year.
“As I See You” is a reflection on self-love and friendship, according to lead vocalist Laura Mina Mitic.
“The distance between two souls is deepened when we forget to love ourselves. By embracing those who love us, within ourselves we can find a sense of home and belonging in our own skin.” Drawing inspiration from a “Harvest Mood” type feeling, she notes “I wanted to create a song that people could slow dance to – with a partner, with a ghost or by themselves.”
Carmanah’s debut album, Roots, came out in 2018 and reached #30 on the commercial rock charts.
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
