Wellington-based singer/songwriter Miles Calder follows up his recent single with another atmospheric reflection "Lake Geneva", ahead of a three-date tour next month.
Written at the same time as "Take Me Back To How It Was" when feeling “lost and isolated” while living in Geneva, Switzerland, the new track is delivered as a knowing sigh of acceptance.
With melancholic verses that give way to reverb-drenched choruses, "Lake Geneva" is about surrendering to the inescapable march of time and change - “Saw the darkness in the deep, oh lord / I swear Lake Geneva rose right over me,” resign Miles' echoing vocals, recognising the coming flood, before crying slide guitar and watery synth crash in.
After a striking re-emergence to the local music scene, Miles will perform three shows across Wellington, Auckland, and Tauranga next month.
Joined by his 5-piece band, including long-time collaborators Nick George (drums) and Steve Moodie (bass), along with electrifying recruits Chris Armour (guitars) and Dayle Jellyman (synths, electric piano), audiences can expect a diverse range from chomping rock ‘n’ roll to flooding ballads.
