The Indie Song of the Day comes from Like Lions, the indie project headed up by songwriter/producer Patrick O'Neill.
Like Lions began in 2009 as a project that O'Neill wrote with a dozen songs that he wrote in his latter teenage years. The project released it's debut album, All Be Fine
in 2013. The project isn't the same thing that it started out to be, but it's still a very autobiographical body of work from O'Neill.
O'Neill is based out of Seattle and his new song is called "Older." It's a shiny synth-driven, indie-pop track with an emotional vocal edge, nostalgic lyrics and a hip-hop beat. It's big on melody and even bigger on thoughtful lyricism.
The song is being released alongside O'Neill's 30th birthday, and it's a very reflective piece that's highly relatable to anybody over the edge of 30.
