Earlier this week Cory Myraas, the mastermind behind Windmills, released a stunning new video for his latest single What Do We Talk About (When We Talk About Love?) which invites us to enter the world of Cory’s life experiences turned into a beautifully compelling musical and visual art.
“We shot the video over 5 days on a road trip from Vancouver, BC to Los Angeles, California. We shot in 25 plus locations and compiled hours of footage, hard to believe we made a 4:40 video. We used a fraction of what we captured to create a visual companion to the song. One that highlights the chaos and energy of the music, the theme of the lyrics, and the new direction for Windmills. Aaron DeSilva filmed and edited something amazing; we’ve known each other for 6 years and have performed on many stages in the past. Working with him in this type of situation was a dream come true.”
The track is taken from his upcoming record Death Of A Ladies’ Man.
“It is the most honest and autobiographical record I’ve ever written. The songs all attack me, my experiences in love, loss, and trying to navigate some bitter truths about myself. I’ve split it up in 6 parts, with 2 “transfigurations” that serve to create warmth and tension in the listener. My goal is to show a progression in my history of love, where I’ve been, what I’ve been to certain people, and how I’ve come out on one side or the other because of it. Have these experiences shaped me to becoming a better man? You’ll have to listen and find out. “
For the first time ever, the new album will be pressed on a limited run of 12″ vinyl, out everywhere on September 29th.

True artists who create music that makes you feel something are rare these days, but if you pay a close attention, you’ll find such talents producing music that will leave a mark on your soul, send chills down your spine and leave you longing for more. Windmills has always had such effect on me. Back in 2012, I spoke to the man behind this project, Cory Myraas, about his unique musical ways and creating a sound that takes you to a special place. Windmills, based in The Okanagan, BC, have kept moving ever since, evolving graciously through Cory who has been pouring his life experiences and challenges into his writing and music. His latest single, Sierra Nevada, about which Cory talks in our following interview, is a track loaded with beautiful melancholy, and him expressing each heartfelt emotion through the soul-stirring vocals that flawlessly compliment the magnificent soundscapes.
I spoke to Cory not only about his new single and the continuous growth of Windmills, but also about his travels, favourite shows and plans for next year.

Their new upcoming album Radiogeist promisses a bunch of original and well crafted tunes coming from the band’s eclectic music taste and passion for experimenting with different sounds. So watch out! MGMB spoke to Sam (vocals) about the single, album, songwriting and more interesting stuff about Volcanoes.
