“Bloom,” the first single from Itayil, the atmospheric-prog rock solo project of CanaItayil Reveals Debut Single, “Bloom”dian musician David Chunn, is available today. Listen to the song now exclusively via Sea of Tranquility here.
“This song reflects on the finite nature of life, and how nothing is constant,” Chunn says. “Just as quickly as we learn and grow, we forget and the light leaves us, similar to a flower in bloom.”
Translating to “in between,” Itayil is a word that resonates with Chunn on a personal level, both in terms of lifestyle and musical influences. A scientist by day and musician by night, Chunn blends sounds from various genres to create melodies that capture the meaning of Itayil.
In a swirl of ethereal soundscapes, with “Bloom” Chunn creates an immersive experience that ventures beyond sound and into the mind. Trained in piano and guitar, Chunn is a self-taught vocalist who cites Alcest, Tesseract and Tame Impala as influences.
“But I’m constantly trying to find new inspiration in any genre,” he adds.
Chunn previously served as vocalist for Calgary-based band Vallite and has appeared as a guest on tracks by Every Hour Kills, Depths of Titan and Gaia.
“Bloom” is available today via Itayil’s Bandcamp and major digital music providers.
