I’ll start this out by saying that we don’t normally go this slow and dare I say, happy, but this tune by Kaanvas really stuck out to us. Maybe it’s the Midwestern spirit in me, or the reference of Illinois in the vocals, but Kaanvas, you’ve made it to the Left Bank.

The track explores the constant need to be happy—or appear happy—when you genuinely don’t have it in you. As artists, we have all been there, and as yesterday was world mental health day, it’s really appropriate, and a good time to share.
