Gearing up for the release of her new album ‘(i think) i might be grown’, Mae Krell gives her fans a preview with the latest single “feeling too much”. Inspired by the emotions and revelations she and her girlfriend dealt with, the sentimental indie folk track is more than your typical love song. I have always been able to go on tour without worrying about my family and friends too much. I’ve built those relationships to be okay when I am away for a few weeks and not have anything change when I come back. This tour felt different because I truly just missed my girlfriend so much, and it was unusual for me that playing a show didn’t make that feeling of missing someone go away. It’s the first time that I really felt like I was risking losing someone to follow my dreams. Known for her exceptional lyricism, […]
Holy Roller Baby is starting the year off strong with an electrifying and bad-to-the-bone track filled with swagger and energy. “How To Love A Ticking Time Bomb” taps into the retro side of 70’s blues rock with fuzzy guitar riffs that will have your hair all in a mess from headbanging! Frontman Jared Mullins was inspired to write the track after witnessing a woman drowning in during a flood: I was driving in the country during a very bad thunderstorm–the kind you’re normally supposed to take cover for. I didn’t. I was dumb. I kept driving even as the water on the road piled up and eventually became too much for myself and a batch of equally arrogant drivers who thought they could weather any storm. Eventually the water levels rose so much it flooded my car as I came to an underpass. The bridge water was high and as […]

This song is the band’s first single of the year, the first of many leading up to the release of their new full length album later this Fall.

As we age, we all think about the “what-ifs” in life and how choices affect our future selves. In Mae Krell’s latest single, “who we said we’d be”, she explores past relationships with loved ones from her childhood and how paths in life affected those relationships: “I was scrolling through my phone late one night and a ton of my old friends had posted on social media around the same time. After having not seen much from them in a while, I suddenly noticed that they had moved away from the city and were still in touch, like we had always talked about doing… but it seemed like I was the only one who didn’t. I consciously know that I made the decisions that were the best fit for me considering individual circumstances, but sometimes when I see glimpses of where I could be if I had made a different […]
