Americana duo Michigan Rattlers have released a new track, “Illinois Sky,” off of their upcoming EP. Lifelong friends Graham Young and Adam Reed capture the intersection between country, folk and rock in their music, while simultaneously capturing the feeling of the end of an era filled with youth and wondering about the uncertainty they’ll be faced with in the future. It’s a relatable song no matter your location. Check out “Illinois Sky” below.
Here’s what Graham Young had to say about the track:
“Illinois Sky” is a reflection of the time I spent in Chicago. I wrote the song for a friend. It marks the end of a chapter in our lives and celebrates the next one.
They’ll be playing two shows in L.A. soon — one at the Hi Hat on 7/20 and School Night at Bardot on 7/25.
