Rising Vermont pop punk band The Silent Mile didn’t lose momentum through the pandemic, recording a number of new songs, and now, they are on the way to releasing new material, premiering their new track and video, “Better Days.”

The song’s lyrics reflect themes that are all-too-relatable surrounding the pandemic and struggles with mental health. Specifically, it explores the idea of mental illness being a taboo subject that people cannot open up about and the expectation that we’re always doing well if we’re asked, “How are you?”

The song was a fully collaborative effort, beginning with chords Hunter wrote, Meghan’s upbeat and catchy lead riff, and Tyler’s energetic drumming that sets the tone of the EP, complete with lyrics written and sang by Conrad.
