Canyon Spells Now That We're Gone on LP

Now That We're Gone is the debut album from Nashville-based indie rock band Canyon Spells. Produced and recorded in Chicago by Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Iron and Wine, Josh Ritter), the ten-track release announces itself as an album built on tension and primed for transcendence with its harmonized guitar solos and soaring vocals. 

Now That We're Gone's immediate sense of urgency stems from an incident that occurred while the band was on tour in April 2015 when an SUV unhitched from a car carrier on the opposite side of the freeway, launched across the median, and smashed head-on into the car beside them. "The whole experience really reminded me how important it is to be brave in what we're doing," explains Canyon Spells' singer and primary songwriter Jimmie Linville. "The accident gave us permission, in a way. It reminded us that we might not ever get another chance."

Canyon Spells, consisting of Linville and band mates Daniel Pingrey and Michaela Thomas, gracefully combine complex and melody-minded songwriting with a guitar-heavy breed of indie rock. Throughout Now That We're Gone, the trio wrestles with themes of disconnection and divide that feel both timeless and current. "A lot of the album is poking at the culture of our generation, and this constant barrage of social media that most people seem to have just accepted," says Linville. "It affects everything: love, relationships, hopes, dreams...and the music explores that, but with a chip on its shoulder."

With their boldness of spirit, Canyon Spells have created a collection of songs that's wholly life affirming, if at times cynical. "We're a band of outsiders, and we make music for outsiders," adds Linville. "And even when it's dark, our fans find hope in our music. They've felt this way or had a similar experience even though – as outsiders – you often feel alone. That's the power of music. That's the reason I love it."
