Mo talks to Beehive Candy about “On The Roof”


By Beehive Candy

Background – This is the year that Mo Kenney plugs in, quite literally. Known for her smooth vocals and fearless lyrics, the Canadian singer releases the fast-paced On The Roof, due December 8th, & taken from new album The Details.

Mo has released two records with long-time producer and Canadian rock mentor Joel Plaskett since 2012. With her third album, Mo comes fully and completely into her own as an artist; she swaps her trademark acoustic guitar for a Fender Mustang, tracing her own strange, devastating, and ultimately hopeful trip through the trials and tribulations of booze-fuelled breakdowns, clouds of depression, and disintegrating relationships.

“I began writing “On The Roof” during a solo tour in the US. I had a day off in Syracuse, NY, and wrote the chorus for the song that day. When I sit and think of all the negative things in the world it can get me down, because there’s a lot of it. I go down that wormhole often, as I’m sure a lot of people do. The song is about being in that mindset and not being able to shake it. ” Mo Kenney

On each of The Details’ 14 tracks Mo unflinchingly confronts her annihilation and eventual redemption, leaving nothing out. Combining elements of bruising rock ā€™nā€™ roll, vivid psychedelia, and haunting, left-of-the-dial pop, Kenney navigates the darkest waters in her life with self deprecation, genuine soul baring, and typical black humour.
