Candy is the solo moniker of Calum Newton, started in 2015 as a bedroom project, last year saw Newton turn the once bedroom project into a live band along with the release of his debut record, Under The Weather.
Straight off the back of his album release, which picked up Album of the Week feature at FBi Radio, Best New Music on Ripe Music, and Triple J play, Candy returns with new single “Feel”.
“Feel” is a pensive yet juxtaposing single with bright melodies and an underlying feeling of desolation.
As Calum explains, “I was feeling a little sad and disconnected awhile ago whilst sitting in my shed. It's hard not to get a little self centred when you’re cooped up in this dusty hot aluminium box and think you're this unique thing who’s the first to ever feel like this.” He started writing the lyrics to “Feel” on his acoustic guitar however, he continues, ”the track felt a little mopey. I'd just bought this slide guitar and cheap violin, so to brighten it up I laid some of that down and sprinkled a little baby piano in there for good measure.”
To celebrate the release, Candy head on tour up the East Coasts with stops at Brisbane, Lennox Heads, Sydney and Melbourne.
