Canadian deep pop-rocker David Vertesi has released”Mountainside Part II,” his second single off of Sad Dad Cruise Ship and a continuation of last year’s “Mountainside.” While it still belongs to the same family of sound, this new track is darker than it’s companion. Vertesi’s deep, warbling vocals lead a quietly desperate track that eventually explodes in sound inspired by nature.

Here’s what David has to say on “Mountainside Part II”…

“Like another side of the conversation, ‘Mountainside Part II’ is a companion piece to its predecessor.  On its own it explores feelings of romantic isolation and suffocation, but in context you can see two very different versions of events.  In my experience it can be hard to know what is actually happening when everyone is busy struggling to validate their own suffering.” 

Sad Dad Cruise Ship is out on April 22nd.
