GS027

Blue Canopy's 'Mild Anxiety' is the debut EP from Portland-based multi-instrumentalist, Alex Schiff. Under the Blue Canopy moniker, Alex combines versatile songwriting chops and timeless, exuberant melodies to comprise four distinct pieces that utilize nostalgia as a force to move forward.

Formerly the keyboardist and co-writer for indie band, Modern Rivals, Alex has shared the stage with bands such as Ra Ra Riot, Stars, and The Black Keys. The EP's lead single, "656" enlists the four other members of Modern Rivals (performing drums, guitar, bass, synth and backup vocals) as an official send-off to a relationship that was a formative part of Alex's youth and time living in New York City.

'Mild Anxiety' was produced by Alex Schiff & Patrick J Smith (A Beacon School/Modern Rivals).

Track Name: 656
Accordion spring back to me
Golden opportunity


Driving into hurricanes
I know that you are over it
Crippling anxiety
There’s nothing left for you in this
Protected by parenthesis
I know that you are over it
Balance on your fingertips
I know it’s not enough 


Manhattan, cosmopolitan
Pleasantries, then let’s begin 


Flowers draped in history
Now that you are over it
Withered leaves of hickory
There’s nothing left for you in this
Your wings are barely fluttering
Now that you are over it
What’s the use in bickering
I know it’s not enough
