Florida native Brett Koolik is coming back with a new indie-pop single, “Paradise Valley Fault Line.” The track follows Koolik’s last release, “IDK.”
While Koolik has been writing songs since 14 years old, he attended Vanderbilt University pursuing a degree in biomechanical engineering. Koolik attributes this particular song as a reason for him pursuing music as a career. He took his talent to the mountains of Montana: Koolik wrote this latest single while staying in a house on top of a fault line in Paradise Valley.
“Paradise Valley Fault Line ” explores the blissful ignorance of ignoring problems in a relationship to an original and cheerful indie-pop tune. It has a perfect balance of head-nodding beat and a cinematic, symphonic build to the chorus, satisfying every want from a song. The track finishes on a strong note with help from horns and Koolick’s smooth vocals, as well as the anthemic lyrics, praising the paradise on the fault line.
It’s paradise don’t close your eyes
It’s always evergreen
Maybe I’m just holding on
Cause I need something to believe
