Picture this: two people meet in small town northern Ontario on a Saturday night as summer is coming to an end. A chance encounter that eventually will define the narrative of the rest of their lives. That is both the story that runs through the music of Summersets, and also how the new duo’s members, 2014 Polaris Prize nominee Kalle Mattson and Andrew Sowka, met growing up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
Last week, the pair release their first single, “anywhere you go”, which you can buy/stream here or watch below!
“I first started writing this project as an exercise in writing character-based songs, specifically these two characters living in small-town Northern Ontario. The idea behind ‘anywhere you go’ was to have it be an introduction into their backstory and how badly they want to change their lives and their surroundings.”
“At its core it’s just a love song about escape. It weaves in and out of daydreaming both lyrically and musically, really taking influence from Kodachrome meets Born To Run.”
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
