"Varied instrumental sounds and has a mix of folk and rock, great potential for many radio station and music enthusiasts. Especially because of the amazing production"
The project started after I, Daniel Blomqvist, wrote a couple of songs while temporary staying and working in a small Swedish town. Through this town, Swedens most known channel (canal) runs. Me (Daniel Blomqvist) and drummer Olle Nilsson started working on the songs and formed a band which became Le Canal. The band consist out of Daniel Blomqvist (vocals, lead, guitar) Olle Nilson (drums) Totte Nyden (bass) Martin Lino( guitars)
We recorded the EP Au Revoir almost 1,5 year ago but finished and released it this spring. The music, and especially this EP, is inspired by 90´s bands like The Lemonheads, Pavement, Dinosaur Jr, but also bands like Okkervil River. Our lyrics deal with ordinary life issues like lost love, longing and loneliness, but although we are based in Gothenburg, our lyrics are also influenced by the mystic aura of the Swedish wild nature, woods, lakes, and mountains, which is always close even if you live in a city.
