Singer and multi-instrumentalist Lou Canon has emerged as the vanguard of Toronto’s bedroom electronic movement. With her enveloping, downtempo music, Lou has created a vibe steeped in style and effortless mystique. Her album, Suspicious (co-producer Mark Lawson – Arcade Fire, Basia Bulat), was released via Paper Bag Records in April 2017. This is music for nighttime; roiling drumbeats and breathily expressive vocals that lead you through the dark corners of your innermost subconscious. Lou’s intention for each song was “to leave the front door, go south at the end of block, across the freeway, over the toll bridge, through the antenna, riding the waves, beyond the horizon, rising in the hot air, falling like rain, and reverberating in that space between an eardrum and your imagination.” Suspicious does just this—its songs surround and transport the listener, beckoning them down a labyrinth of alluring and synthful beats.
