The Indie Song of the Day comes from four piece rock band Wake The Sun. The band is from New York and they play a blend of blues, southern stomp, psychadelia and soul – all rolled into one. They play vintage rock with New York City grit. Check out the band’s latest single “Tell ‘Em All Again” below.
The band chose not to sit idle while immersed in the global pandemic, opting to utilize modern technology to collaborate while social distancing. The results capture the core nuances, energy and musicianship define the band’s sound. There is a notion of vintage renaissance in the music and imagery, while also exhibiting a young artist channeling a reawakening of the soulful music that moved and shook generations historically during times of crisis.
This latest recording of “Tell Em All Again” was mixed by Mike Watts of Vudu Studios, while the accompanying music video was produced by Tom Flynn. The band’s Dillon Mealey shares, “The composition illustrates a call to break the cycle of what society deems as normality, and the notion that so many people are brought up thinking they need to get a 9-5 job to simply make money, eat, sleep, and repeat until you die. The lyrics are about discovering who you are, creating your own path, and finding your identity. Too often people get wrapped up in others opinions, media views and instant gratification through social channels. The song elucidates the importance of taking time to get away from all that and to find your own happiness. I chose to depict a character, who as the narrator has identified these sentiments and is living them, and is telling his / her friends you can do it too, if you want to. From my perspective, there’s a very real importance to sometimes get away from it all. Simply to make time for yourself, pursue goals and dreams, and think on your own. Nowhere is this more important than in today’s current climate, and its primarily why we feel this is an opportune time to release this song.”
