BandAlternativeNew Age

The band describes their music as ambient or prog punk and are influenced by the likes of Deerhunter and Talking Heads.

Biography

"Blank Canvas are perhaps the one new Edinburgh band that most clearly represent the city's post punk heritage. A band who take the primitive sound of post punk and add some very interesting dynamic twists for a progressive deeply rhythmic sound." This Is Fake DIY

"Few bands give so little away with their name as this young Edinburgh quartet. But 'By the Fire' offers much potential; its woozy, sunburst quality harks back to the sound of Orange Juice without being the slightest bit in awe of its influences." The Scotsman

"Elements of dreamy math combined with sweet, indie melodic guitars and bass are met with the vocals of Matt Berninger [The National] come Ed Macfarlane [Friendly Fires] creating an infectious sound" The 405

"They've got some great songs already, combined with strong vocals and a new Johnny Greenwood in the making on the guitar." Vic Galloway

"A melding of choppy urgent percussion, thick driving bass that sits way out in the front of the mix, honed guitar riffs, and smooth vocal lines belting pensive lyrics." Beat of Travel
