French rock sensation Cannonball returns with their much-anticipated second single, “Creeping Beauty,” under the banner of SODEH Records. This dynamic fairy tale parody offers a fresh perspective on the band’s multifaceted artistry. Evident in this composition are pronounced British rock influences, reminiscent of iconic acts like the Kinks, Blur, and the Arctic Monkeys.
In a departure from their previous work, Cannonball approaches a satirical exploration of societal imperfections, infused with a touch of humor. The narrative revolves around a young woman ensnared by the enchantment of a manipulative prince, leading her into a confining labyrinth. The central question looms: will she muster the resilience to break free from his grasp, or forever remain a possession of his desires? Within our consumer-driven society, individuals, especially women, can be commodified and exploited by those driven by cynicism.
Moreover, within our current disposable paradigm, once a person has been depleted and exploited, they are unceremoniously discarded, exemplifying a disheartening cycle. This very mechanism mirrors the dynamics of the drug market, whether viewed on a global scale, where societies are often sacrificed in favor of economic supremacy (as seen in the historical context of the British and Chinese opium war), or on a local level involving neighborhood dealers. Clients are tragically reduced to expendable assets, often ending up in what is poetically referred to as the “beautifully decorated human repository” known as a cemetery.
Beneath the captivating and lively surface of “Creeping Beauty,” lies a profound commentary on our somber societal landscape. Anticipate further revelations as Cannonball’s upcoming releases unveil additional dimensions of their artistic prowess.

Coming straight from Lille, northern France, this rock bomb is about to explode worldwide. As catchy as polemical, it will turn you to its side without you even noticing. Painting the world with raw colours, Cannonball’s songs target society’s wounds, intimate epiphanies or sheer non-sense : nothing is out of its range (no pun intended).
Born in the mind of Ian – a singer-songwriter active in different genres like pop, folk, electro, groove or swing – Cannonball gives him the opportunity of spitting his venom. Along with anger and frustration – main fuel of rock’n’roll for decades – a deeper analysis of our society is another key to unlock Cannonball’s safe. You’ll get food for your soul and your mind.
With influences from classic rock to grunge, power pop, pop-punk, indie rock, metal or french cancan, Cannonball’s watchwords are “melody” and “energy”. Ready? FIRE!!!
