With their new song “Come Home and Break My Bones“, Ljubljana, Slovenia’s THE CANYON OBSERVER took a different writing approach than usual, tackling elements of free jazz and some creative and unconventional improvisation. The new epic serves as a dark, monumental gateway between the old material and the new album which is currently in the works. The upcoming release will feature additional members so be on the lookout for even more promising experimentation! Meanwhile, check out the band’s new music video for the 10-minute megalith above!

Comments the band: “Last summer, which now seems like ages ago, we shut ourselves in the studio for a couple of days to put our minds together and finish creating this song. We had a few skeleton edits, but we wanted to do the complete song, just brainstorm it – and as always, the meaning eluded us. So at one point we were outside having a break, eating bread and drinking wine like the pure Christians that we aren’t, and we stumbled upon some dentures in the grass. It was an amazing and bizarre find, so obviously we brought it back to the studio.
Later that day, we had a few local musician friends over to do more holy communion stuff with the wine, and we got to talking about the dentures, as one of the locals said that an old lady had committed suicide on the train tracks just next to the studio and that the dentures had to have belonged to her. Now we know they might not have been her dentures, but what are the chances that they weren’t? Considering that two of us have parents that committed suicide, the odd dentures just rounded off the song and gave it meaning, and so “Come home and break my bones” came to fruition.”
