Amherst, NS (Aug 23/2020) North Of Nowhere, a high-energy rock upstart from Nova Scotia, Canada, have made the most of their time in isolation and return with the blistering new single “Memories” .
The band wrote the song in March during the height of isolation, drawing on memories of pre-pandemic times and the happiness found in simple liberties. The band members used each other as bubble-mates as soon as the first allowances were announced, and started working out new material immediately.
“This recording means a lot to me, but we just had fun and tried to keep spirits light about the whole situation” says singer, Dylan Ellis.
With rumors of the local bubble expanding to allow travel to the neighbouring province of New Brunswick, the group booked some fingers-crossed studio time. Masks and paperwork in hand, the band spent a day in Moncton, NB, recording the single with friend and producer Don Levandier ( The Motorleague ). “It was important to us to feel like we captured our energy and kind of in-your-face mentality with this recording.” Says guitarist Matt Dorey about the recording session. The song was produced and mixed by Levandier and mastered by Harry Hess ( Monster Truck, Arkells ) in Toronto, ON.
“The world is a dark place lately so it was important to try to figure out what our message was, and what we wanted to use our voice to say; Find your motivation. Find your Happiness. Cling to it, to get you through to better days, and don’t give up.” Says Ellis.
