Canvas (CNVS) are a four-piece indie rock band from Queretaro, in Mexico. In a country where quality indie music is few and far between, CNVS stands strong thanks to the long career of their members. Although they are a young band, their members have been active musicians for more than a decade.
Their sound is energetic but soothing, a combination reminiscent of scandinavian rock bands. The instruments are natural and melodic, and seem to want to explode but are contained, as on a leash. Raw and honest vocals round up the combo to make an overall most interesting debut EP.
It’ll be exciting to watch this young, independent band flourish and find their way into the Mexican mainstream. Some of their songs are actually written in English, so a northern breakout may be on its way. Here’s to hoping.
Listen to their debut EP below.
