Cleveland's the Lighthouse and the Whaler.
Just today, the local indie rock act the Lighthouse and the Whaler released its careening new single, “Way Back.”

The band also recorded a music video for the track, a jittery pop tune with percolating synths and heartfelt vocals.

"When I first started writing 'Way Back,' the chorus lyrics were the first thing to come out," says singer Michael LoPresti in a statement. "It became this song about the odd ways we complicate relationships and the oftentimes circular nature of life. I think that life moves in circles especially in relationships. We move and pass one another and sometimes we say what we mean, but I find there’s a weird orbit we maintain that often finds us coming back to people important to us."

The group performs on Oct. 8 at the Beachland Ballroom. Tickets to Lighthouse and the Whaler's concert at the Beachland are on sale now.
