Internet if you thought you were crushing hard for The Henry Millers before, just you wait for their newest Single, "Simple Thing". Lifted from their upcoming sophomore album, Posies, out September 16th.
"Simple Thing" is unbridled indie-pop at its best - a melody that is all consuming, driving guitars, wild synth play and a hook big enough to land Moby Dick. We had a quick chat with The Henry Millers and its clear where that burst of energy came form, "I used to love swings and merry go rounds and see saws like crazy, swing, saw or round, I loved running around playgrounds. I was thinking about how I used to spend such so much time doing so and the incredible joy I would get from that experience. Growing up in New York can be very claustrophobic so going outside to the park and being let loose to just run around and be a crazy kid was extremely liberating. I think I was really trying to recreate that feeling of joy in the process of writing this song. I wanted it to be fun and upbeat from beginning to end."
