“Who Are You?” kicks in with a soft strum of chords before the rest of the band punches to the beat. It’s a song that keeps to its beat and lets every instrument shine with its own variant of harmony. The song is debuting online today, and The Inoculated Canaries are its orchestrators. Take a listen to the release below, and expect more from the group as the year goes on!
“The song is meant to be a prequel to another song on this album. It’s about meeting someone for the first time, really being into them, but also realizing that you don’t know who they are beneath the surface. The idea for the chorus came first. “How long does it take to really know someone?” It’s really about the sense of discovery that comes from getting close and wanting to know them on a deeper level.” -Michael Rubin
Eclectic, boundary defying, and never lacking in sarcastic remarks, The Inoculated Canaries are a rock and roll force to be reckoned with. Hailing from New York, the “four guys who can’t dance” are striving to leave their musical legacy; inspired by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and Nirvana, The Inoculated Canaries are constantly pushing themselves to explore new, innovative sounds while making their presence known.
The unforgettable quartet is composed of Michael Rubin (guitar, vocals), James Terranova (drums), Dylan Gross (bass), and Brian Sweeney (keyboard). Coming from diverse backgrounds and varied musical influences, the band values creativity above all else; striving to combine familiar elements with the unexpected.
