The Pit / The Lock UpSundayTBA
Somewhere, in a cluttered basement in rural Vermont, you will find “nothing,nowhere.”creating in solitude. In this very basement – a socially anxious kid has ironically managed to reach not only the rest of the country, but the globe. Since creating the project in April of 2015, the project surpassed a million plays on SoundCloud in just 10 months and has found a home within the new wave of internet music. It’s midwest emo meets southern trap; heart wrenching guitar riffs with unapologetic 808s and lex luger hi-hats. Forget a genre, it is what it is – and nothing,nowhere. wouldn’t have it any other way. The project’s first album, the nothing, nowhere lp, appeared in June 2015, followed by the EP Bummer later the same year. Working on some of the tracks with producers he’d met on SoundCloud, the latter was recorded in his parents’ basement in Vermont around the time he committed to pursuing music full-time. The EP Where Are You? followed on Synergy Records in early 2016, and in 2017, the single “Clarity in Kerosene” arrived via Pete Wentz’s DCD2 label and Equal Vision Records. And now he has just released the latest single “Ruiner” on Fueled By Ramen/DCD2 Records.
