“I think we’re on to something new,” Canadian-born Mike Edel opens with on “Go With You,” his new indie-pop synth laden single.

Edel has been working with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) since sending demos to Walla, who was living north of the arctic circle in Norway.

The second single “31” is an “I Won’t Back Down” thirties are the new twenties anthem due out this Fall, and if the first two singles are a result of almost a full-year in the studio, we can expect more very soon.
