Indie Alt-Rock Band Wyland Drop Anthemic New Single "Nowhere Now"
Formed in New Jersey just a few years ago, alt-rock outfit Wyland have tackled indie music scenes from New York City to Ireland, creating explosive performances that stun audiences every time. Today, the band has released their latest single, “Nowhere Now,” a testament to their far-reaching talent.
“Nowhere Now” opens with a shrill swell before the rapid-fire layers of percussion come in, these slaps and shimmers rolling over one another in quick, steady bursts. The vocals follow — gruff with both a strength and a pang of something you can’t quite identify, but you know it’s rooted in vulnerability and nostalgia, those raw themes that abound in the lyrics, like when Wyland confesses “I just wanted to feel something that’s real.”
For the remainder of the song, the band goes all in with an impressive instrumental camaraderie, every element — from the melancholic wail and reverb of those electric solos to the speedy percussive smacks to so much more — firing at maximum skill but with a finesse that allows the song to come together so completely. “Nowhere Now” is a searing alt-rock anthem flavored by subtle sparkles hiding in the melody and the urgent push-and-pull of its high-powered arrangement sprinting to that final dynamic climax.
