Canary is my favourite Melbourne band. Every time I see them live, I walk away with a feeling of sheer elation. Every time I listen to them on record, I wonder why I didn’t come up with that chord progression or melody. Or why didn’t I think of that lyric? Canary is the moniker for musician Matt Keneally. Keneally manages to combine the best bits of Radiohead, Elliot Smith and Sufjan Stevens into something that is musically incredibly intelligent and at times lyrically confronting.
