If you didn’t know where indie-pop quartet Maritime (featuring Davey vonBohlen and Dan Didier of the Promise Ring) were from before today, one listen to their new song, “Milwaukee,” will tip you off. In it, vonBohlen confesses, “Milwaukee, Milwaukee/You’re my one-horse town.” The track is being released today, April 14, because apparently today is Milwaukee Day? (Learn something new every day, I guess.) It will presumably be on the band’s currently untitled fifth album, which is being released on Dangerbird Records this fall.
