Kandle Releases New Song “Honey Trap”
- Canadian singer-songwriter Kandle, who is known as daughter of Neil Osborne of the alt-rock band 54-40, unveiled a new song “Honey Trap” from her upcoming third studio album “Set the Fire” on March 3, 2021.
The track was written by Kandle Osborne, and produced by Michael Rendall and Kandle Osborne.
The accompanying music video was directed by Brandon Fletcher, and features Los Angeles-based actor Keenan Tracey and her band, The Wiccs. The video is inspired by Ridley Scott's 1982 film “Blade Runner”.
Kandle Osborne said of the song, “Rock and roll has always been a vehicle for heavy themes set to fierce, visceral beats. I wrote "Honey Trap" in a euphoria of newfound freedom after having been trapped in a toxic and manipulative power struggle. One of the best ways I've found to get through hard situations is to let loose in music and this is the product.”
- She continued, “Manipulation exists in all spectrums of relationships and genders, nobody is safe from its subtle erosion and darkness. I learned of a spy tactic called Honey Trapping and realized it has probably always existed in some fashion. This is the theme I played with both lyrically and visually. When society conditions you to believe that your only assets are your body and your sexuality, the idea of using these as a tool to move forward when all other avenues are closed doesn't seem so extreme. You start to believe it's your choice, albeit a self-sacrificial one. Only when you start to break free, it becomes clear that you were never given a choice in the first place. We play their game until we make our own.”
The new album is expected to be released this spring.
