RNZ Music is delighted to present the new single and video from Wellington singer-songwriter Miles Calder. ‘Lake Geneva’ is the second solo release from the former frontman of Miles Calder & The Rumours.
Almost four years since Miles Calder & The Rumors’ last release, Miles Calder is stepping out on his own.
After living in New York and Geneva, Miles has returned to New Zealand with a new band and new sound.
He wrote ‘Lake Geneva’ while feeling “lost and isolated” living in Geneva, Switzerland. The song was written at the same time as his previous single ‘Take Me Back to How It Was’, and carries the same melancholic charm.
The accompanying video was directed by drummer/director Nick George and follows Miles trudging through hometown hills and coastline, inexplicably gaining more and more baggage. Ultimately, he’s left to shoulder his burdens, and press on.
Miles is heading out on tour (tickets here) with a five-piece band, including frequent collaborators Nick George, Steve Moodie (bass), and new recruits Dayle Jellyman (synths, electric piano) and Steve Moodie (bass).
