Scottish duo Canongate are a perfect summer soundtrack with their new single 'Glad I'm Free'!

Scottish duo Canongate are quickly becoming ones to watch on the Indie scene and their two 2023 singles perfectly demonstrate both ends of their sonic spectrum. 'Room 2', released back in January begins like a stripped back performance from Catfish and the Bottlemen bringing back memories of Van Mcmann's Live Lounge and Like A Version appearances.

Yet, it then grows into a more upbeat Indie romp full of slick vocal lines and romantic sentiments. The verses have a raised energy while the chorus takes on a steadier, more heartfelt approach as each line is delivered with emotive impact, the perfect chorus to sing back in your bedroom daydreaming of your summer crush. The final chorus then gains the energy of the verse resulting in an energetic finale perfect for a festival set.

Their new release 'Glad I'm Free' is a more vibey number with lyrics of summertime lemonade and a laid-back, care free attitude that the title suggests. Sonically, their are flourishes of soulful guitar playing smooth vocal lines that dance on top of the dreamy groove. This is the perfect track to help you forget all your troubles and drift away in the warmer months. Indulge in the breezy Jazz atmosphere and soak in the declinable guitar playing as your worries fade away.
