Murfreesboro, Tennessee-based indie rock outfit Mountains Like Wax, comprised of Mitchell Taylor (vocals, guitar), Samuel Katz (guitar), and Preston Vaughn (drums), will self-release their phenomenal debut EP, Tetraology, on November 6th. The first single from the four-song record, “Contingency Theory”, features Taylor’s emotive tenor against the backdrop of Katz’s searing guitar work and Vaughn’s rhythmic anchor behind the kit.
“I wrote this song in the fall of 2013 after my brother and I had moved into our first apartment together after college. Very quickly into the year, his presence in my life was gone. The only thing that was left, it seemed, was this idea of a person. I was living with a ghost. The song’s bare bones are about wishing something was there that simply isn’t. Being lonesome can just be a part of growing up,” explains Taylor.
