Citing bands like Pinback and Explosions In The Sky as two of their influences, Minnow, which includes Nik O’Hara (vocals), Kenny Tye (guitar), Madison Megna (guitar), Daniel Campos (bass), Curtis Baxter (percussion), and Alex Onate (drums), spent time with engineer and producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, Whirr) at his studio The Atomic Garden in Palo Alto, CA this past year creating a record that was tracked live in a way that it was "able to capture all of the nuances and impact of their live sound," says guitarist Kenny Tye. "Having two percussionists in the band, we knew it would be extremely important to capture the feeling of them playing in the same room."
As the last day of Summer announced it’s departure recently, Los Angeles’ Minnow is offering an alternative to the almost non-existent weather change in true California fashion with their brand new song "Indian Summer".
"Indian Summer is me coping with death," says vocalist Nik O’Hara. "There was a period of five months where someone I loved had died each month. I got the tittle from my grandmother who was telling me a story a couple weeks before she passed about a killing frost in her hometown and how she would pray for an Indian Summer. It was the first time I understood this politically incorrect phrase and realized I too had been praying for an Indian summer."
