Midnight Miles want to assure you it’s all good in their new single Like You Wanna Do — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The old-school Montreal rockers’ latest vintage-sounding release is a soul-stirring rock ‘n’ roll anthem with electrifying sound, raw emotion, and relentless passion. “In writing Like You Wanna Do, we wanted to encapsulate the longing to feel unburdened,” said lead vocalist and songwriter Ryan Setton. “Many of us are just trying to be the truest versions of ourselves, and nobody should ever feel like they’re being judged or prosecuted for that.
“Like You Wanna Do is all about living in the moment and having the integrity and courage to do your own thing, your own way, in spite of any resistance you may encounter… it’s meant to inspire us to embrace our individuality.”
Like You Wanna Do is the followup to their spring release Steal Away, an EP that highlights Midnight Miles’ diverse range of influences and styles. Each track on the record embodies an original sound, resulting in a melting pot of R&B, soul, blues, and jazz elements. Produced and mixed by the band’s drummer Justin Wiley, the EP captures the essence of Midnight Miles’ musical prowess and their collective commitment to creating a sound that is clearly their own.
The uniquely quintet consists of Setton, Wiley, Shaun Ryan (bass), Jesse Ray James (guitar/backing vocals) and Peter Grant (guitar/backing vocals). Armed with soaring vocal harmonies, loud guitars and upbeat infectious grooves, they’re on a mission to take listeners for a wild ride.
