In Their Words: “This song came when I was feeling really stuck inside during the pandemic alone, and wanted to move some energy. I was learning some old-time clawhammer tunes, and was playing in Double C tuning a lot. I had just bought a Telecaster electric guitar and was getting some big fuzzy tones out of it that I wanted to capture. The arrangement just kept growing and growing, as I kept hearing and adding more instruments — accordion, piano, shakers, glockenspiel, drums — anything I could get my hands on. I think I just wanted to experience big sound again. Lyrically, I had just heard news of a close friend passing away during the pandemic, a former bandmate of mine whom I loved dearly. He clearly made an appearance. I still hear the desire for freedom and expansiveness in there.” — Travis McNamara
