Nowhere to Be Found

HM is proud to premiere the music video for “Traverse,” a new track from Nowhere to Be Found (NTBF) featuring the vocalist of Memphis May Fire, Matty Mullins. The song comes from an as-yet-untitled sophomore release scheduled for this year.

We spoke with vocalist Tiago Duarte about the track:

“‘Traverse’ is about an abusive relationship, whether that be a friendship, relationship, or even religion/lack of religion. Although the lyrics can fool one into thinking it’s a love story, it’s about someone in a toxic relationship who refuses to change for the benefit of both and still lures the other one into sticking with the relationship. It’s about deceit. We’ve all been there, right?”

In addition, Mullins joins the track for the second verse. The Portugal-based band described working with him as a “sheer display of artistic kindness,” elaborating that he gave himself to the track despite the band being relatively small with no record deal and no agency. “Matty gave himself to this song without the demands an artist like himself could ask for,” Duarte said. “He liked the song and he went for it. Not many guys in the industry would do that. His voice is so good and the harmonies he created from scratch are so beautiful.”

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
