Maybe it's everything going on in the world—plunging from an apocalyptic standstill into endless mayhem seemingly overnight. It can be overwhelming. But Night Traveler's new song hits just right.
The Austin duo made up of Adam Fischer and Hunter Glaske released their new single "Put Your Money on Me" on Thursday, and it's just so damn good. With a sense of emotion simmering underneath, it's bursting with nostalgia, reminiscent of late-night drives, summer road trips, or coasting along the highway just to get away from the world, with flares of The War on Drugs and Real Estate surfacing throughout.
"Pursuing dreams takes so much sacrifice. It’s late nights, no sleep, financial risk, your loved one sleeping alone," explains the band. "And often, this burden falls on the people around you. 'Put Your Money on Me' is about asking the ones you love to hold on a little longer. To keep believing in you. It’s a song about looking them right in the eye and being damn sure when you say, 'I’m not letting you down.' We chose this track as the lead single because it's not what people would expect from us. In fact, it’s not what we expected. When we went into the studio we never imagined this coming out. And that’s exciting to us. It has a new kind of energy to it."
"Put Your Money on Me" is the first single from the duo's upcoming debut album, from which they'll be sharing more music in the coming months.
