Briston Maroney Announces Indiana EP, Out May 17th on Canvasback Music

With today's release of new single and video "Caroline," Briston Maroney announces Indiana, his next EP on Canvasback Music out May 17th. Recorded in rural Kentucky's Thunder Sound studio and defogging the haze of dual upbringings in Knoxville and Amelia Island, Indiana presents a new beginning for the 21-year-old finally finding his footing in Nashville.

Stream and share "Caroline" in an Origins feature at Consequence of Sound, where Maroney discusses how Michael Cera, Grandmas, Birds, and The East Room inspired the song and its routinely unorthodox visual:

Across the four tracks and artwork featuring a girl trying to dress up like the older sister she idolizes, Maroney meditates on the sobering disparities between adolescent dreams and adult realities. In what quickly became the most fleeting, restless point of his life, he dropped out of college, floundered back to one of his homes – a story recounted in the heartrending "St. Augustine" – but returned to Nashville with some of the most visceral and vulnerable rock n roll coming out of the city's DIY scene.

On Indiana, Maroney says, "My choice of using the photo of the young cowgirl was an attempt at symbolizing how much we all wish we were something that we are not. The songs on this EP touch on this idea exactly. The essence of each is the underlying dissatisfaction with who you are in comparison to who you want to become."

Steeping the rootless poetics of his hero Townes Van Zandt in the sweat of the basement sets and house parties where he was eventually discovered and signed, Briston Maroney emanates an "invigorating vibe" (NPR), unwavering whether he's performing for hundreds or completely alone. His last EP, Carnival, has amassed millions of streams, and amid the release of Indiana, Maroney will join Liz Cooper & the Stampede and Wallows on tours spanning the US and Europe, with more dates to come – find them all below.
