Everything In Motion finds Candy in a seemingly more positive headspace but as usual, ruminating on life with honest lyrics that cut to the bone and whimsy that flecks through his sunny instrumentation.
Candy has the unique ability to write bright tracks juxtaposed by uneasy topics and Everything In Motion is a testament to that. Familiar traces the struggles with dementia; forgetting who you are, where you are, and the impact on those around you. Feel sees him looking inward, with an underlying feeling of desolation, while Sorry, Sydney is his apology to all the trash he spoke about the city after living there.
Finding inspiration in usual places, the album title was came about after visiting a William Kentridge exhibition at The Gallery of NSW while on tour, Candy explains, “I really enjoy the notion that we're constantly moving and found it to be a good mantra.”
Everything In Motion was recorded in his tin shed in Thornbury, he’s since moved house relieved, “I’m glad I am out of there now cause there was A LOT of spiders and I was sick of sweating bullets.”
