Everest Premieres Video for New Single, “Let Go” On Spinner Today

At the heart of it, Everest is composed of five singer-songwriters, which may explain why bands like Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Neil Young have all enjoyed taking them out on the road with them. When it comes to Everest’s actual songbook, having too many cooks in the kitchen doesn’t hurt, either — it just adds flavor.

Frontman Russell Pollard tells Spinner that, of the batch of songs that form their new album ‘On Approach,’ the lead track ‘Let Go’ was originally the odd man out. “It started off as a riff Jason [Soda] came up with and over time we kept tweaking it and it kept morphing,” he says. “We then added a second drum kit and the song developed into what it is now. It’s become our favorite to play live … for me especially, since I get to return to my roots as a drummer and play alongside Davey [Latter], while singing.”

As for the video, like Everest themselves, there’s a lot going on all at once. But the end result is a feast for the eyes as well as ears. Check it out below.
