Song: "Independence Day"
Album: High Wire & A Heart Of Gold LP
"'Independence Day' is meant to sound like a bit of a femme fatale love song on the surface, but is very much about the relationship I have with being an artist," Halsted's Ryan Auffenberg tells Rolling Stone. "I’ve been playing music pretty seriously for ten years now, and during that time, it has provided me some of the most satisfying moments of my life. But now more than ever, it’s a pretty risky business."
