The Minneapolis group The Millenium are one of the hardest working bands on the road today. Showing no signs of slowing down, the guys released their new single, “Interstates” today, March 31st, 2016.
The track opens with a riff from Kyle Culver’s familiar sounding bright, but soothing acoustic guitar. Kyle Featherstone’s piano dances lightly around the edges, shortly followed by Matt Hasenmueller peaking in to start his first bold lyric, “I never want to see you again.” Continuing a comparison of a cold relationship and the Midwest weather, Matt confesses the awful feelings that are accompanied by the ups and downs of this roller coaster we call love.
Punching drums and chanting gang vocals widen out the chorus as Matt belts yet another solid anthem chorus, which starts with a catchy rhyme that rolls right off your tongue when you sing along, “Autumn should have taught him you would go. The city couldn’t take the cold.”
Featherstone says, “The foundation of this song, now four years old, is rooted in so many different monumental life changes for all of us. Written in all four seasons multiple times over has made it slightly ambiguous. Ever growing, ever reeling. The meaning has turned from a personal inquisition we once fondly knew, to a play-by-play of a character we’re not exactly familiar with anymore.”
Check out the new track below, then catch The Millenium on tour, beginning April 1st, 2016 at The Garage in Burnsville, MN!
I never want to see you again
You’re just like any other sin
I cover up with a grin
The barrier wears thin
We go up and down and rally round we go
But it’s still too slow, it’s still too slow
Autumn should have taught him you would go
The city couldn’t take the cold(no) x2
I’m sorry I
I didn’t catch what you just said
In the dead of night, a firefight we’re throwing lead
Stalled on the road I’m on empty
Stare at the message you sent me
Liquor and nicotine spin me, but it’s too slow
It’s still too slow
