Even the title, India, Seattle feels like a story on its own. Victorias Mike Edel couldnt have named his sophomore release more poetically.
Part of growing a little bit older, a little bit wiser is the awareness that comes inside growing spaces. Nearing thirty, on the exhaust of a brutal four year touring schedule, Edel settled inside these spaces to create his finest work yet. Theres a quiet here, even in the literal spaces in the record that speak loudly.
Theres something about the way Edel presents personal experiences in a way that project universal understandings. Love and beauty, pain and confusion, the knowledge that all precious things are only precious because they can be lost. It feels a little bit like growing up - like the moment when everything that felt so close as a young person is all of a sudden so far away. Its the comfort in finding that you arent alone. Theres a humanity in these discoveries, and listening to India/Seattle feels like watching Edel discover it for himself, and the product is a little bit of each of us.
