TRAVERSE CITY, MI – Female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) are set to self-release their newest single, “Heavy Flag”, on November 2nd. Produced by Grammy-award winning producer John Congleton (St.Vincent, Lana Del Rey, The Decemberists), “Heavy Flag” is a focused combination of edgy indie rock, intelligent arrangement, and deeply compelling lyric.
Buist muses, “I wrote “Heavy Flag” thinking about our future, the weight and responsibility of our generation to care for our resources. While I was writing the song, I had a book open to the famous photo “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima”. The weight of that flag being both physical and psychological struck me as a powerful statement. The time for that statement is now.” “Heavy Flag” speaks to the cost of societal apathy and invites the listener to find their own voice. It’s a timely call to action from a group that Texas Lifestyle Magazine calls “defiant, young – powerful, and undaunted.”
The Accidentals kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut label album, Odyssey, on Sony Masterworks garnering praise from NPR, Huffington Post, Billboard, and more. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring the entire United States, seventeen festival performances, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies and FOX Sports, and a RAM Trucks BandVan #tourtough commercial. Determined to share “Heavy Flag” with the world before the mid-terms, the band has chosen to self-release the song.
They are currently touring nationally, and their music can be found online, on all streaming platforms, at Barnes and Noble, and at their shows.
