Born in Brooklyn, NY, the name Candiria is synonymous with the kind of experimentation and genre-bending more often associated with freeform jazz and progressive rock than hard/metalcore music. Their original fan base, predominantly rooted in the well-knit NYHC second wave (Merauder, Madball, Burn, etc.), took to Candiria's balanced integration of aggressive unusual time signature'd dissonance with hip-hop, jazz (early bop as well as late period fusion), dub, and abstract psychedelic experimentation straightaway, a testament to the band's skillful musicianship and intelligent sonic aesthetic.
'While They Were Sleeping' is a concept album conceived by the band's lead vocalist Carley Coma. Telling the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City, 'While They Were Sleeping' aims to encapsulate a vision of the contemporary world, in all of its riotous and tech-driven complexity. Ambitious as such an idea may seem, it is part of Candiria's natural development, and has given birth to some of the band's proudest and most challenging moments.
