“Radiating with vibrant energy, Päter’s latest offering, ‘Something // Way’ (pronounced as ‘Something in the Way’), is an alt-rock anthem that bursts onto the scene with undeniable personality and a driving force that’s impossible to resist. Embracing the age-old struggle of stop-starting and getting caught in one’s own path, this track captures the essence of raw authenticity, backed by a production reminiscent of early 2000s indie rock legends like The Strokes and The Killers. A music video is set to accompany the release, promising an audio-visual experience that amplifies the song’s essence.
As summer blazes on, Päter is on a creative spree that shows no signs of slowing down. Following the release of two singles, ‘Four Walls’ in June and ‘Nicotine Hallelujah’ in July, each accompanied by self-directed videos, Päter has now unleashed ‘Something // Way’ to the world. This alt-rock gem shines as a testament to the artist’s multifaceted musical journey.
‘Something // Way’ marks a distinctive pivot into the realm of alt-rock, leaning into Päter’s early influences to create a sound that’s both nostalgic and fresh. Drawing inspiration from icons like The Strokes and The Killers, the song kicks off with an ethos that’s palpable from the very first note, unleashing a cascade of sonic waves that thrash and sway in perfect rhythm.
Reflecting on the creation of ‘Something // Way,’ Päter explains, ‘I wanted to channel the indie and alt-rock vibes that shaped me while infusing a playful touch. This song delves into the complexities of stop/starting, feeling trapped in your own path, and wrestling with self-doubt. It’s a celebration of the underlying fury that accompanies the act of pushing forward despite the challenges.’
Collaborating with Vancouver-based co-producer Howard Redekopp, whose impressive repertoire includes Tegan & Sara and Mother Mother, Päter brings a polished edge to their irreverent songwriting. As the second release from this dynamic collaboration, ‘Something // Way’ is a testament to Päter’s dedication to crafting music that resonates with unfiltered emotions. Keep an eye out for more from this exciting partnership as the year unfolds, promising an intoxicating mix of sonic exploration and artistic authenticity.
