Singled Out: Cold Shoulders (The Ready Set/Dresses/Plug In Stereo)

Cold Shoulders, featuring Jordan Witzigreuter of The Ready Set, Jared Ryan Maldonado of Dresses, and Trevor Dahl of Plug In Stereo, release their self-titled EP on April 12th. To celebrate we asked Jordan to tell us about the single "Wasting Away". Here is the story:

This was the first song Trevor and I had written together, I think I had just gotten home from a tour with The Ready Set and we decided to give it a shot. Both of our other projects at the time were way different than this stuff, I know I personally hadn't had the chance to work on anything non-electronic and not super pop, so I was really stoked about doing something like this where we could kind of just do whatever and not over think it.

To me personally it's about feeling trapped while waiting for something good to happen and how mind-numbing that can be. I definitely channeled a bit of frustration about a label situation I was in during the time we wrote this- I think it's really the only time I've made any reference to that in a song. It was super refreshing getting to be open about things like that in a way that isn't just complaining.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
