Midnight North Shares ‘Good Days’ Single
Midnight North shared a new single, “Good Days.” The track is the first from a studio album the band plans to release “in the coming seasons.”
Midnight North wrote and recorded the tune pre-pandemic and after all its members went into quarantine around the country, the group decided to “fast track one specific tune from said new record for immediate release ahead of the rest.” The result was “Good Days,” which vocalist and guitarist Elliott Peck spoke about in a statement:
I had the chorus of “Good Days” in my head a few weeks before I sat down on my parent’s porch in Charleston and worked out the melody and lyrics. The picture in my mind was of a small rustic cabin, where two people were sharing their time, and were happy enough with just each other’s company that they needed nothing else. The song touches on how we are a culture always in wanting, and when we really think about our happiest times, it was the simplest ones, when the company of someone was all we needed. Grahame [Lesh] filled out this story with his lyrical ideas on the verses, and Nathan [Graham] added the exclamation point with the phrase about the birds.
Peck, Lesh and Graham wrote the music and lyrics for “Good Days” and all three sing on the track as well, with Peck handling lead. Peck and Lesh played acoustic guitars with Lesh adding 12-string acoustic. Nathan Graham provided drums and banjo while Connor O’Sullivan put down bass and mandolin. The track also features piano from frequent collaborator Jason Crosby.
