Wilderado Release “In Between” Single & Video Today

“‘In Between’ is one of those songs that fell out while struggling to write several other tunes. We paused in a moment of frustration while at the studio and found a riff Justin (drummer) had written several years back. The song appeared as a reprise in the space caused by exhaustion, writer’s block and imposter syndrome. There’s an easy nature to it that seemed to form itself. The lyrics came in with the melodies and all we really did was sit around and enjoy it. Then we had to go back to working on the others.” – Max Rainer, Wilderado
