THE CANDLES SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM JULY 9TH ON THE END RECORDS
CANDLES MEMBERS SET TO PERFORM STONES FEST DATES
ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN TOUR WITH ALBERTA CROSS
“Singing sweet melodies in three-part harmony over ambling rhythms and laconic guitar, Lattanzi and his band crafted a sound heavily indebted to the golden charms of the ’70s singer-songwriters like James Taylor and Harvest-era Neil Young…as moving as watching the sun set over Topanga Canyon.” – SPIN
New York, NY – (May 9, 2013) – Hot off a successful tour with legendary songstress Norah Jones, and named Best Breakout set at SXSW by SPIN, The Candles are proud to present their 2nd full length album La Candelaria slated for release July 9th on The End Records.
While Josh Lattanzi (guitarist and frontman) labored over their debut album Between the Sounds obsessively in his apartment, he took a different approach with La Candelaria (titled after a historic neighborhood in Bogota, Colombia that he visited on tour).
“I wanted it to sound as live as possible,” he says. He recorded in five different studios between New York and Massachusetts with the band, with several tracks produced by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Phish) and Mike Denneen (Aimee Mann). The band attacked Lattanzi’s air-tight hooks with razor-sharp execution; listen carefully to Roberts’ other-worldly psych-prog escapade in “What Happens Next,” Pynn’s twangy steel-guitar bite in “Blind Light”, Remm’s haunting organ flourishes in “One Way Ticket” and Wieczorek’s tight minimalist grooves throughout.
The Candles are looking to spend the next year on the road, and Lattanzi adds they’ll back up some of their best friends too. “At this point, we’ve spent so much time making music together, we’re a tested unit,” he says.
