The Indie Song of the Day comes from Linden, Alberta in Canada and it's indie/folk/pop artist Mike Edel.
Mike made his debut with The Last Of Our Mountains back in 2011. Since then he's toured across Western Canada and he's slowly built up a solid pass in his home country. Now, Edel is based in Vancouver but also spends some time in Seattle.
From his email blast, here's what Mike had to say about his new song, "Go With You" - the song we're featuring as the Indie Song of the Day.
In a season of both personal and social thresholds and change, I wanted to create an optimistic indie-pop anthem for 2018’s dwindling days of summer and beyond. I began working with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) after sending him demos while he was living north of the arctic circle in Norway. We quickly adopted a consistency is boring mantra with the new material.
“Go With You” is a song about change and vectoring forward into the unknown without regret. I love the synth lines and the hi-hat drums. It’s a departure for me, both sonically and rhythmically, and I’m very into it.
After splitting my time between Seattle and the mountains of British Columbia, and getting married, I’m taking my music in particular – and my life in general – across a threshold, through an open door, and into the unknown.
