Beloved noughties indie rock outfit Cannon return with their first single of the year, Light In The Fog lifted from their debut album ‘Connexion’. Following on from last year’s long-awaited track and instant fan favourite Enemy, the Melbourne three-piece have shared the second taste of ‘Connexion’ and revealed that the debut LP will be released Friday June 4 via Quixotic Records.

Having nervously decided to rehearse as an overdue excuse to come together over a few drinks, Cannon reconnected after a long stint of pursuing other projects and are excited to share the undeniably ripe fruits of their labour with their debut album ‘Connexion’. Reminiscent of T-Rex, hinting at early Kasabian and Primal Scream, but blasting like Ty Segall, Cannon is a collection of guitars, noise and subtle 80s synth, connected by philosophical songs about anxiety, Absurdism, the fine line between survival and self-destruction, and an indignant, yet tranquilised, social malaise. Cannon’s second lifted single Light In The Fog leaves its predecessor’s anthemic pub-rock choruses for a cruisey earworm of distortions. Listen to Light In The Fog via SoundCloud below.

“‘Light in the Fog’ is a song inspired by absurdist philosophy, and the tension between a desire to find meaning for our existence where no such meaning exists. ‘Fog’ is about making the most of any situation and seeing beauty within darkness, and doing so despite a lack of ‘true meaning’ being attached to our being.” – Mitch McIvor, Cannon

Light In The Fog is out now via Spotify / iTunes / Apple Music / Bandcamp

More about Cannon

Cannon were a permanent fixture on the Australian live circuit in the mid 2000s. Their raucous self-titled 7’ vinyl release led to several high-profile performances across Melbourne Fashion Festival shows, and the subsequent song, Hell, from their EP ‘Hardwood Hits,’ received high rotation on JJJ. The band performed relentlessly; their eclectic live show on display around Australia with bands such as The Black Keys, Tenacious D, JET, You Am I, Dallas Crane and The Fauves. Frontman Mitchy McIvor’s (Damndogs) vocals range from relaxed and intimate to screams of despair and often within the same song. Prominent and full of fuzz, Adam Green’s (Dave Larkin Band, Danny Walsh Banned) bass is the central driving feature that ties the tunes together and no one could doubt that Cannon sees Dave Mudie (Courtney Barnett) rightfully on display as one of the country’s truly great rock drummers.
