Miamigo released a new catchy uptempo single that will make you push the gas pedal a little harder. The band says this about the new track ‘What I Want’: “It’s about a restless wait and the virtue of patience that battles inhibitions and alter-egos, dreams and delusions.” The duo released their ‘Hard To Love‘ EP in June with support from The 405, Hilly Dilly and DIY to name a few. The track has already garnered 8,000+ SoundCloud streams.
