Today, singer-songwriter Mav Karlo (the solo project from Toronto’s Menno Versteeg), is sharing “Wirewalker“, the final single from his upcoming debut album, Strangers Like Us, out tomorrow, October 16, on Royal Mountain Records. Menno elaborated on the meaning behind the track: “Relationships are hard. We all know that. Sometimes, when a person you are close to is experiencing pain, it’s a battle they must fight on their own and there is nothing you can say or do to help them win it. Still, it can be excruciating to watch from a distance. It takes a certain kind of bravery to give them the space they need and have faith that they will come out the other side.” He continues: “I like to imagine Philippe Petit on that grey and cloudy day that he set up his tightrope between the Twin Towers. This song is about the desire to achieve that kind of calm belief in oneself. That ability to push forward, unflinching and confident, knowing that to fear the storm is human, but no human can change the weather.“
