After an extended hiatus where they spent their time away from the touring circuit, travelling, writing and recording new music, Pierce Brothers have announced the release of their new single Kanko. A mellow acoustic, harmony based single with a driving beat, Kanko calls to a freedom found in the mountain air, reminiscing that free feeling will come again after this time of isolation. Co-written over a weekend with singer/songwriter and producer Garrett Kato (Ziggy Alberts) who has recently released another co-write with Julia Stone (Breath It In), mastered by Joe Carra at Crystal Mastering (The Tesky Brothers, The Cat Empire) Kanko has catchy hooks and an uplifting message. For fans of the chilled folk vibes or Angus and Julia Stone, Ziggy Alberts and Garrett Kato, Kanko is a smooth, beat driven track that calls out to easier times to come.
