Daily Dose: Mike Krol feat. Allison Crutchfield, “I Wonder”

Daily Dose is your daily source for the song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team.

Mike Krol has released “I Wonder,” featuring Allison Crutchfield of Swearin’. It’s the second single from Krol’s forthcoming album Power Chords, due out Jan. 25, 2019, via Merge Records.

“I Wonder” is a scuzzy, sugar fuzzball of a love song—or, according to Krol, more of a breakup song. ”’I Wonder’ was an attempt to write an apologetic breakup song, rather than the ‘It’s all your fault’ route I normally take,” Krol said in a statement. “I wanted to write something that was more mature in approach following a mutual breakup, or one that maybe stung at the time but years later you can admit it was for the best and wish that person well.”

Krol said the concept of a breakup song came to him while he was considering breaking up with music in the midst of an existential crisis following the release of his last album, 2015’s Turkey. His journey back to power chords and punk included recording at the studio where Neil Young made Harvest. Power Chords stands as Krol’s longest release to date at 34 minutes—keep scrolling for more details.
