Progressive indie rock outfit Molehill has shared “Reverie,” a brand new track which is the second single to be released from their latest EP, Hearts On Fire, out May 12th. The track tells the story of losing someone who had a big influence on you. The synth-heavy song follows in the vein of their 2015 EP Tin God.
Vocalist Peter Manhart opened up about the song, saying: “The lyrics are about my father, who died when I was 6 years old. Throughout my life, I have met many people who had stories about how great a man my dad was, how smart or funny or kind he was, how he helped so many people, or how he was this amazing piano player. However, to me, his legacy is more than just a story – ‘you left them a story to tell, but you made me the person I am’.”
Manhart also commented on the song’s creation, saying: “It started as a 3-chord bridge in one of Greg’s (keys/vocals) other ideas which I really dug and turned into its own song. After cycling through many treatments for the song, we finally settled on this organic/synth hybrid – which is a direction we find ourselves taking more and more.”
