Mike Krol – “I Wonder” (Feat. Allison Crutchfield)

In January, Mike Krol is releasing his latest album, Power Chords, the follow-up to 2015’s Turkey. We’ve heard a few tracks from it already: “An Ambulance,” which was included on a 7″ with B-side “Never Know,” and “Little Drama,” and today Krol is sharing a new one called “I Wonder.” It’s fuzzy and freeing, and Allison Crutchfield joins Krol on the back half. “Time can move so fast/ When you forget about your past/ We were never meant to be more than that,” they sing together.

“‘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.”
