Kicking of what promises to be an exciting Friday full of premieres, we have the always awesome Dan Miraldi who’s back with the release of his highly addictive new single “Every Day of the Week,” a tuneful, bittersweet love song, with Beatles-esque harmonies, barroom piano, and jangle-pop guitars. Written in his Greenwich Village apartment and produced in Cleveland by the Grammy-nominated Dave Douglas (Relient K), the song is equally inspired by XO-era Elliott Smith and ‘60s psychedelic pop—dreamlike, but with a formidable stomp.
On the song, Dan comments ““’EveryDay of the Week’ is a song that is musically optimistic and uplifting but lyrically explores the darker themes of an unbalanced relationship. It’s about falling in love despite knowing that you shouldn’t get too attached. I wrote ‘Every Day of the Week’ after three caffeine-fueled days of working on music alone in my apartment. I was getting ready to leave my place and return to society when the chorus melody hit me. I wrote quickly and completed the song in one sitting.”
The former frontman of Dan Miraldi & the Albino Winos and a former member of the dearly departed Silver Liners, Dan was a fixture of the Cleveland rock scene before relocating to the Big Apple in 2014. Last year, he released his latest album Chaos, Destruction & Dancing, which boasts “Junkie Friend,” a finalist for Best Folk Song in the 2015 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. This past summer, he performed at the LaureLive festival outside of Cleveland, opening for acts such as Grace Potter, Elle King, and Panama Wedding.
