Parts & Labor :: "Nowheres Nigh"

Indie bands have been courting arena rock in a flirtation we haven't seen since 5th grade. "So ... I mean, do you want to ... like ... I don't know ... .... date? Like go out? Forget it ... I shouldn't have said anything. " Too often people are afraid to ask for exactly what they want and too often little bands are afraid to admit just how big they might want to be. But sometimes, sometimes people don't wait and they don't mumble. Sometimes bands aren't afraid of making the biggest song they can. Sometimes you should just look Julia Briggs in the eyes and say, "I have a huge crush on you and we should be together forever. Or least until the end of science class." 

Parts & Labor have made, "Nowheres Nigh" and it's the biggest song they have in them. The guitars chase a simple keyboard progression and it all collides in a buzzy, churning chorus made for fist pumps and zero gravity. Despite an awkward key change in the last half, this is as big an indie rock sound as you'll hear this year. The band's new album, Receivers is due October 21 but we're happy to bring the first single right. now.
