I the Mighty‘s Brent Walsh has released “The Way You Seem”, the second single from his sophomore release Are You Even There at All?.
“The Way You Seem” finds Walsh exploring new territory as he mixing hip-hop beats and R&B melodies with lyrics focused on the insecurity of falling in love. The track initially took shape conceptually when Walsh found inspiration in a beat that his I the Mighty bandmate, guitarist Ian Pedigo, was creating on his computer. This presented the unique opportunity for these long-time bandmates and friends to collaborate in a new way, and the result is a bold creative direction for Walsh that exemplifies the tremendous range he shows on his latest EP.
As Walsh explains: “I was walking by the room of my house-mate and fellow guitarist of I The Mighty, Ian, as he was working on a beat. I immediately popped in to ask if when he was finished I could write to it for the solo record. The rap song on my first solo album became such a fan favorite that I knew I had to write another one and thus this “Justin Timberlake-esque” song was born.”
