Last year, Candy Claws released my favourite album of the year, Hidden Lands. Since then, I’ve had the chance to see the band several times, and I’ve actually become friends with this lovely bunch of kids.

Ryan, one half of the main songwriting duo, even designed the art for my new EP. The band has been posting these lovely videos for the last few months, entitled Dreamland. They’re incredibly beautiful, hazy, colourful videos that have an almost nostalgic, nature documentary feel to them. I love when an artist can act in holistic ways; when they can be not only a talented musician, but also a videographer, photographer and design artist. Candy Claws are one of these bands that are able to transcend forms.
