Published Dec 15, 2016Cory Myraas makes music out of British Columbia's Okanagan Valley under the moniker Windmills — a name that conveys his ability to convert energy into songs. His latest is called "Sierra Nevada," and Exclaim! is bringing you the exclusive premiere.
The track takes Myraas's experiences from travelling through Central and South America earlier this year and turns them into a lush, moody, synth-driven tune.
"When I returned from my travels I was re-energized and full of inspiration and instantly began writing and creating," Myraas tells Exclaim! "'Sierra Nevada' is a product of that trip, specifically my time spent in Colombia at the end of it, and was inspired by beauty and heartbreak, high above the Sierra Nevada Mountains, hidden above Minca, Colombia."
You can hear Windmills convert that beautiful energy into an equally beautiful song by giving "Sierra Nevada" a spin in the player below. The track will appear on a 7-inch single due out in 2017.
