Track of the Day: Milq “Summer Again” (2020)

Although summer seems far away, Canadian indie-pop band, Milq’s latest single “Summer Again” gives us those nostalgic feels for warmer weather and young love. Extracted from their self-produced debut EP, tired. this track is the quintessential tune for reminiscing on our youth and past experiences of infatuation and lost love.

The tone of the song has a dreamy atmosphere with a subtle 80’s electro spin. With a built up climax near the end of the track, the hard hitting and heartfelt lyrics echo through powerfully with “You’re never really gone, I feel you in the air, you’re the only one, it’s never been so clear, and all I really want is to so give this a chance, to pretend it’s summer again” giving us a wave of electric shocks.

Milq explains the inspiration behind the track and their EP, tired.

“Summer Again embodies a nostalgic vibe sonically, with guitars that enhance the lyrics’ story. This track almost entirely came together in a single day. With tired., we have created our first holistic statement as a band. Most of the songs were written during a short time period in a very organic group environment. The songs on tired. celebrate our inspirations and display the full breadth of our work, from upbeat synth-pop songs to ambient, soundscape inspired ballads.”
