After playing to packed crowds across the country opening for friends and fellow Midwesterners Yam Haus, Minneapolis singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Landon Conrath delivers another indie-pop gem, this time with the textured and experimental new song “November.” Landon plays around with acoustic atmospherics, drums loops, and even auto-tuned vocals, showing his ever-evolving production skills.

Landon explains: “November is about the absolutely soul-crushing pain of deciding if you are going to stay or leave a relationship. The chorus focuses on the immediate regret when the main character has “traded their gold for silver.” The song adds on to the overall project theme of wondering if the pain of regret will be bigger than the pain of staying where you currently are.”

Since making his debut in 2020, drummer-turned-songwriter Landon Conrath’s distinctive hook-laden guitar-pop has become a viral sensation leading to millions of streams and high-energy sold-out performances across his hometown in the Midwest and beyond.

2022 saw the release of his debut full-length, Nothing Matters Anyway, an 8-song expression of the growing pains of youth and all the pitfalls that come with it. The release received attention from The CurrentMSP MagazineMinnesota DailyEarly Rising, and more, cementing the 23-year-old as a leading voice to emerge from the Minneapolis indie scene. He’s written and produced alongside fellow Minnesota musicians like Jake Luppen of Hippo Campus and toured the world as the music/production director for fellow Minnesota indie-pop artist Ber. Landon most recently finished up a run of tour dates supporting Windser and Yam Haus.
