Seeker (due out October 25, 2019 on Merge Records) is Mikal Cronin’s fourth and finest full-length to date. Recorded live with a crew of close friends and engineer Jason Quever at Palmetto Studios in Los Angeles, it finds Cronin pushing his often devastating power pop into darker territory. “Fire—specifically its cycle of purging and reseeding the landscape—is a central theme to the record. Death and rebirth,” says Mikal. “I was looking for something: answers, direction, peace. I am the seeker.”
Cronin is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles, CA. Since 2011, he released three full length albums under his own name, alongside contributions to various recordings with artists such as Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, Shannon & the Clams and many more. He has been playing bass in Ty Segall’s touring band for the past 8 years. Mikal lives in Los Angeles with his cat Ernie.
