The Indie Song of the Day comes from L.A. indie dance artist Tyler Garrett. He just released a new single and video called “Potential Love.”
Earlier, Garrett had dropped his first EP, now he’s dropped the title track for the EP as a single and released a video to go alongside it. For the EP, Garrett drew inspiration from a variety of life experiences and observations. The show lets Garrett show off his smooth vocal, his harmonies, and some cool lyrics too.
“I started the song with a haunting electronic arpeggio leading to a tapestry of minimalist instrumentation to represent the tangled and complex quest for love we all experience,” he said. “Love is beautiful, love is dark, love is full of potential for both joy and sorrow. This song attempts to capture the experience of exploring the possible future of a relationship and the tension that creates.”
The single’s video dives into the emotional world of the song through ambient lighting, synchronization, and moody camera work.
“The video brings out the darker elements of the song while still leaving the reminder that every relationship is built on hope for the future,” Garrett said. “Our goal with the video was to represent how a relationship can go in many different directions.”
Garrett, a Los Angeles transplant from South Carolina, has been writing melodic electro-pop songs and collaborating with other artists for years. Potential Love is his first solo release from Garrett, but expect more to come from him moving forward.
