Song Of The Day: Shannon Lay – Nowhere

Shannon Lay’s “Nowhere” opens up with lyrics that sound like either some kind of nonsense riddle or some super deep philosophy. Or maybe a bit of both:

Nowhere soon
Soon we’ll get to nowhere
And we’ll talk to no one
And not meet them

The trippiness of the lyric is well matched by the music behind it. In “Nowhere,” Lay offers up the perfect piece of mellow, folky psychedelia to soundtrack this trip to nowhere. Lay has described the track as being about “the importance of enjoying the journey” and one wonders whether that journey is a physical one or one of a more metaphysical nature. Or maybe a bit of both.

Shannon Lay’s August is out August 23 on Sub Pop Records. Check out the video for “Nowhere” below.
