A.Dd+ premiered this video a few days back right before the release of DiveHiFlyLo which unless you’re in Dallas, you wont be able to get until February or March. The track itself is also featured on NickNack‘s State Machine, and you can check that out now on bandcamp.
Here’s a song that is from the forthcoming NickNack“State Machine” full length album that will be available at crowdcontrolrecords.com.
“What’s interesting about this song,” notes Slim Gravy, “was that I had written my verse and the hook without even telling Paris the concept, and his verse ended up matching perfectly.” And that concept, according to Paris, is, “the weight of petty issues and people, and how they can shape your perspective on life in a given moment.” The gist of the song, a melancholy track built around Nick Nack’s slowed, guitar-laden beat, is summed up in one succinct bar from Paris’ verse, when he raps, “The success turned me to anti-social socialite.”
