New EP from Can­vas Wall

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

In an­tic­i­pa­tion of the long-awaited fol­low-up to their de­but al­bum, Think­ing Out Loud, In­die pop rock four-piece Can­vas Wall headed home to Malta to launch their new EP Man­nekind last week­end, with a head­line show at Funky Mon­key on Ma­noel Is­land yes­ter­day.

Formed 10 years ago by close friends Si­mon and Craig, the pair left the Mediter­ranean heat in or­der to carve out a place for them­selves in Lon­don’s thriv­ing mu­sic scene. There they joined forces with friends Dean and Mat­teo to form the band we know to­day.

The band have never lost sight of their hum­ble be­gin­nings back home, stat­ing that “we have a lot to thank Malta for and we en­joy com­ing back to per­form – any ex­cuse to come home and we are there!”

With in­ter­views lined up with Michael Bugeja, Ra­dio 101 and XFM Ra­dio, the boys are cer­tainly go­ing to be kept busy dur­ing their time there.

How­ever, this won’t stop them from giv­ing back to the place which first sparked Dean and Si­mon’s ini­tial pas­sion for mu­sic.

Whilst back in Malta, they will also travel to Santa Theresa Girls School to take part in a Stage Coach-led work­shop that aims to en­cour­age as­pir­ing mu­si­cians and song­writ­ers.

Hold­ing true to their ini­tial prom­ise of pro­duc­ing di­verse, genre-blend­ing beats that ap­peal to a mixed bag of mu­sic-lovers, Can­vas Wall en­joy ded­i­cat­ing time to the next gen­er­a­tion in the hopes that they may in­spire Malta’s mu­si­cal ex­port in years to come.
