KANDIA - "Quaternary"
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to welcome Kandia, an alternative metal band from Portugal, to the label’s growing roster of young talent. The band’s label debut, „Quaternary“ is scheduled for release in 2022. Kandia is also one of the first bands signed through the Frontiers & Beyond initiative, which was launched by the label with the intent to sign bands who will be part of the next generation of hard rock and metal.
“We are excited and very eager to work with Frontiers,“ says the band. „The label is passionate about music and we are proud to be part of the family. „Quaternary“ definitely has our established identity, but we always like to experiment with new things. These hard times that we are going through gave us much inspiration, so this record is filled with different emotions.“
Kandia started in November 2007, founded by singer Nya Cruz and guitarist André Da Cruz. They decided to name the band Kandia – to obfuscate, to blind by light – as they felt it would represent the positivity they wanted to radiate. Influenced by progressive rock bands such as A Perfect Circle, Tool, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, and metal giants like Metallica and Pantera, the band was able to find a unique sound joining all these influences in their songwriting. Musically, Kandia create raw, melodic, and sensual music that delivers positive messages while not leaving the aggressiveness out of the music.
Kandia has released two full length albums thus far, both produced by Daniel Cardoso (Anathema), and one EP. At the end of 2019, once again partnered with Cardoso to begin writing a new album. In May 2020, they released the song “4 Walls” as a taste of what’s to come. Now, with „Quaternary“, the band is prepared to continue their sonic journey and spread their music to global audiences.
