SONG PICK: Valley Maker – No One Is Missing (Video)
“Tell me, people make you angry, People are your puzzle, Trouble begets trouble” – after yesterday’s events in Washington, D.C., these words become a whole new meaning. They are the opening lyrics of “No One Is Missing,” from the new single by Valley Maker, announcing his new album “When The Day Leaves”. Of course, the South Carolina singer/songwriter had something completely different in mind when he composed and built the gorgeous song. Austin Crane aka Valley Maker says about “No One Is Missing:”
I wrote the track as a way of grappling with the partiality and temporality of how we connect with one another, I guess as an attempt to collect and reflect on recent experiences of loss, love, leaving, returning, missing, etc. On that theme, while recent months of social distancing have often felt isolating, I’m continually grateful for how music and the natural world can remind us we’re not alone.
We love the mellow and comforting feel of the song, its deliberate instrumentation, and pacing. The accompanying music video is a work of sheer loveliness. Watch the beautifully contemplative video, directed by dustoftheground, and check out our Song Pick of the Day:
