David Madras - Collide - Indie Music Contest April 2020
“Collide” is a space Western, featuring a lonely desperado piloting a rocket ship, yearning for a love lost long ago. The production nods at classic psychedelic country with slide guitars and keyboards shimmering over a finger-picking background. This song captures something special about what I want my music to be. I love writing about nostalgia and loneliness, and what’s lonelier than outer space? In these days of social distancing, the lonesome plight of an astro-cowboy-naut is especially relatable.
