Canyons - Fire Eyes

Canyons - Fire Eyes

Drawing influences from the far corners of planet Earth and beyond, Australia's Canyons strikes a balance between psych and acid house, pop and disco, fiction and fact. Leo Holiday and Ryan Sea-mist have been producing their distinctly boundary-less modern cacophony for a couple of years now, attracting interest from fans of eclectic, irreverent dance music everywhere. The duo has remixed tracks for Empire of the Sun and Ladyhawke, and also runs the Hole in the Sky label. Fire Eyes is Canyons' first release for DFA Records and follows recent compilation appearances on Modular, Lo Recordings, and Cosmo Vitelli's I'm a Cliche, among others. Their debut album is in the making and will be out on Modular in late '09 / early '10. With the odd remix in the pipelines, Canyons are also piecing together a full live band to take their musical healing on the road and to the people. 

 

"Leo Holiday and Ryan Sea-mist are the dynamos behind Australia's Canyons, offering tantalizing disco-meets-acid-house treats with a touch of pop for easy dancing pleasure...." --Urb Magazine  

 

"... deep, grinding house that sounds like [Canyons] has been listening to Art Ensemble of Chicago and/or Popo." --The Fader
