Make You Mine embodies the feeling of summer, with its bright, energetic tone and its memorable hooks. The song is built around catchy and fun melodies, drawing inspiration from 1980s sounds and combining it with the modern pop and indie sound that Flynn Tanner has developed throughout his past releases. Tanner’s experience writing and producing dynamic and lush songs comes through in this track through its narrative of falling in love at first sight. Make You Mine is the perfect song for the summer, as it evokes both a unique nostalgia and lively energy.
Flynn has spent the past four years living in Boston, studying songwriting and production at Berklee College of Music, and returning back home to Toronto during time off. Now nearing graduation from Berklee, he has been working hard throughout the spring and summer of 2021 on writing and recording his debut EP, which will contain new unreleased tracks written and recorded by Tanner. Make You Mine, released on July 30, is the first single from the EP.
Flynn Tanner is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He has recently embarked on a solo venture, after years of performing within the Toronto music scene, playing clubs and festivals.
Flynn’s new music combines a variety of sounds, blending together alternative, indie, R&B, and modern pop influences. As a result, he has developed a unique and exciting sound, which feels catchy and direct, yet nuanced and authentic. At the age of 21, Flynn has been producing, mixing and recording his own songs for ten years already, and has developed a sound that will captivate and engage fans of artists ranging from the Beach Boys to John Mayer and Vance Joy.
