Trails and Ways – “Mtn Tune” [Video Premiere]

3 years ago written by

Trails and Ways have surfaced from nothing and taken the blogosphere by storm, dominating the HypeM charts and giving indie writers ample reason to feel giddy. Why haven’t you ever heard of them? Probably because they’re working off of only a handful of song releases, have a small fan base, and still haven’t released an album of any sort. Yet, despite this, they’ve managed to track in the Top Ten of the charts on numerous occasions, and two weeks ago they were the number one followed band on HypeM for over 5 days straight (ahead of people like The Shins, Grizzly Bear, Twin Shadow).

For anyone who knows anything about something, looking at Trails and Ways’ rapid success raises an eyebrow. It not only sparks curiosity over their future works, but has me convinced they’re setting themselves up for some sort of major breakthrough, and I am in eager wait for that moment to arise.

Their video for “Mtn Tune” is certainly a bit odd, with the dynamic color scheme and all, but it’s a solid sidekick for an already impressive track. If you’re an outdoor person, I can say from personal experience that this video will make you sad that summer is almost over. There’s nothing awe-inspiring about it, but rather the video floats along and serves its role as a visual aid, nothing more or less than an impressive complement to the music. Check out the EARMILK Premiere of the video below, and drop a follow on these guys’ social media outlets for sashes of HP (Hipster Points).

Upon this day, I declare that Indie music is leaps and bounds more pure than anything else, and the Term "Indie" means not that a band isn't mainstream, but that a band has been able to hold on to its roots, even through fame and fortune. While the wonderful thumps and womps of electronic music gets me grooving, it will always be the Alternative Indie Rock that guides me to the homeland. And for that -- I both thank it and applaud it -- for it has brought me great pleasure in the past and will so in the future.

    Ronnie Evans, this video gave me the colors I needed for the day. Sometimes I get sick of looking at New England brown and green. Cheers
