Every week, 88Nine brings you a new track from a Milwaukee artist. They send it to us. We post it here. You hear it before everyone else.
For this week’s premiere, we’ve got the latest from Milwaukee indie-rock veteran Myles Coyne. “Digital Age,” his first single since his 2017 album “Mouse Corn Vs. The World,” introduces a new direction for the open-minded songwriter, with synthesizers inspired by crossover prog-pop acts like ELO.
“The lyrics are peak Covid-era self reflections about streaming shows during the pandemic, not wanting to return to your boring day job, interacting with family and friends through technology,” Coyne explains, crediting the more optimistic tone of the song’s lyrics to his wife Isabel.
You can stream the song below ahead of its music video release on Monday, May 31. A pre-sale for colored 7-inches of the track is available on his Bandcamp page.
