How will you be spending New Years Day 2020? Drummer for Michigan-based The Accidentals, Michael Dause, is starting the new decade by releasing the first single from a forthcoming solo project album. Beat that! Ok, don’t beat that, it’s not a competition it’s about living your best life, and ‘Change’ is about just that.
Multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer Dause is facing his personal anxiety head-on, determined not let it control what he does. Many people, I’m sure, will see themselves in this spirited Emo indie-folk track. The pace and driving energy imbue a sense of optimism and clout. The guitar melodies are a glorious mix of The Cure’s gothic pallor and The Smiths winsome melodic jangle.
Start the decade with your best foot forward, as they (might) say. Treeskin are doing just that.
