Canvas’ new single “You & Me” pays homage to the future soul sound of London and L.A. while keeping its roots firmly planted on Swedish soil. Featuring Philip Strand, the gentle and yearning vocals spin a yarn of lost love. The soon to be familiar CANVAS production ties this together with driving bass, sweeping drums and tropical summertime synths a feeling often fleeting for a Swedish July. “You & me is now out on HMWL/With Love Recordings.
