Under a confectionery moniker, Calum Newton goes by the name of Candy. Via Melbourne, Australia, Candy has irresistible tunes that have a sweet and sunny disposition that meld together new wave and indie pop.
“Chapel Street” is the opener from Candy’s most recent record, Azure, which is on cassette from Z Tapes. Whirring with weightless guitars that dance over rubbery bass riffs, the track feels like a Real Estate composition mixed in with the energy and melodies heard on a DIIV song. Endless rays of joy, the timid instruments are rife with contagious exuberance that’d make it a fit for your upcoming “Spring has sprung playlists”.
