Bixler and Stolte Look To Break It Big

On Remind Me Where The Light Is, Solon Bixler and Rachel Stolte are not afraid to delve into darkness. “We took a lot more risks by entering uncomfortable territory that wasn’t touched on the last record,” Bixler says. “We dug deeper into the unpleasant, which helped us to find the beauty.” Wishing to expand their sound, Bixler and Stolte began working with producer Michael Patterson (Beck, BRMC, Beck) and Nic Jodoin. The results being upbeat, guitar-driven songs, yet with the familiar layered vocals and sweeping, panoramic sound.

Great Northern take bigger chances on this album; “We are content to be learning as we go,” Stolte says, “trying to overcome the fear of changing ourselves, constantly redefining ourselves as artists, and never creating the same thing twice. We hope the people who hear our music will relate to this next chapter of our lives.”
