The final phase of the Nothing Nest self-titled record is available.
This is the first song that I composed in its entirety that I felt could go somewhere. It has been quite a long journey up until this point and it feels surreal at times. I've been doing everything in my will to perfect this track. With the help of my main dude Michael James Stipe, we were able to achieve beyond what I had expected. This is my baby, I've nurtured it over and over again. Have a listen, have a cry, realize that you are part of this world, no matter how terrible things can get. It's a complete and utter coincidence that we released 'Tarnished' this week during this insane war of words in our country.
Tarnished is a song that was created to talk about how the negative beings of mankind are bringing the world down and seemingly closer to its end. Even with the endless greed, war, corruption, power trips, arrogance, ignorance, religious intolerance, and bigotry, no one truly knows when this world has had enough.
With the subject matter being so real and so dark, the message of this song is meant to show that there are many great people that want life everywhere to operate in a constantly smooth fashion. It's an endless battle, good versus evil, right versus wrong, but all we can do is live one day at a time while trying to change things for the better. Forget about what brings us down that we cannot change and continue to do your parts and being decent human beings every single day.
When's the end of everything? We don't know, we'll never really know, but we need to let go. In the end, evil will lose, even if it brings the rest of us down.
Thank you to everyone who has listened to us so far. Nothing Nest went from being a fun side project to a beautiful reality. We'll be coming to you live soon enough!
Things are heating up down at @thebrightsidebris! @ravenslair_brisbane kicked off the night with some beautiful acoustic tunes, Periapsis are now taking the stage by storm, and we have @mercurysky_band and yours truly to follow! Though we're missing @flynneffect, this has been a great show so far - better get down here and join us! 🎶🎹🎸
