About

For a short but potent period, Micah Visser have been calmly positioning themselves to make a serious impact on Canadian music. After showing promise with 'ok night', a sleepy folk record that “soundtracks the restless, suburban night walk of almost any dreamy teenager.” they spent the following months touring and fervently crafting a new sound.

What resulted was 'Forward'. A five song EP of stilted indie pop that manages to be both anthemic and claustrophobic. It shows Visser pushing far outside his comfort zone, and even further outside what is expected of a solo artist. Tracks like 'Keeping Up' and 'Water' provide a slick, 80s synth pop exterior for songs that are lyrically intimate as ever, while title track 'Forward' demonstrates a newfound confidence in his collaborators, drawing upon previously unexplored influences and ending in an extended, brooding instrumental.

Thematically, 'Forward' sees Visser chronicling the strange, fearful step into adulthood. Visser’s year on the road has clearly taken a toll on him and signs of this turbulent new chapter in his life are ever present in Forward. Emotional lyrics and atmospheric instrumentation of 'ok night' remain, but 'Forward' takes the sound a step further—the highs are higher and the lows more devastating.

Forward marks the beginning of a new chapter for Micah Visser. Sonically reinvented and more confident than ever, they are spending the fall touring and continuing work on a full length.
