Melbourne electronic artist Shiver Canyon releases her ambitious new self-titled EP.
A blend of trip-hop, ambient, dream-pop, rock with powerful jazz infused vocals, Shiver Canyon has been compared to Kate Bush, Radiohead and Massive Attack.
Co-produced by Red Black (A State of Flux, Sleep Parade) and vocalist Roni Shewan, Shiver Canyon’s debut is an ambitious juxtaposition of acoustic and electronic elements, with subtle instrumentation, East-Asian percussion and sophisticated vocal layering.
“Shiver Canyon is laced with lush harmonies, which carry the lovely, winding vocals to unexpected places.
There’s nothing predictable here melodically, which makes for a wonderfully refreshing and interesting listen. Roni Shewan’s voice is unique and strengthened by the vocal layering that is featured on most of the tracks. The combination of her vocals and echoing instrumental embellishments create a dream-pop vibe that’s super calming. Each track keeps you intrigued with the climactic song structures, reverb-soaked synths and choral accompaniment. This is a very cohesive offering and truly works best when listened to in sequence.
I’m very excited to announce that Shiver Canyon’s debut EP will be launched at the Grace Darling on Thursday March 23rd, 2017. Supports include female contemporaries Aphir, Emah Fox and Liana Pearl & the Perola’s. Pre-sale tickets are available here.
Press Release below:
Fronted by Melbourne-based vocalist/composer Roni Shewan, Shiver Canyon has been compared to a diverse range of musicians including Kate Bush, Radiohead and Massive Attack. Her original compositions blend trip-hop, ambient, dream-pop, rock, and jazz, with thought provoking lyrical content exploring history, femininity, desire, mental illness and the avant-garde.
Aided by Roni’s powerful, jazz infused vocals, Shiver Canyon has impressed audiences with an audio-visual, dynamic and evocative live show. She has shared the stage with some of the country’s finest performers, including Aluka, The General Assembly, Whitaker and Closure in Moscow.
Co-produced by Red Black (A State of Flux, Sleep Parade) and Roni Shewan, Shiver Canyon’s debut is an ambitious blend of acoustic and electronic elements, with subtle instrumentation, East-Asian percussion and sophisticated vocal layering.
