Middle Part Chooses Self-Acceptance in "Nowhere"
NY-based alt-pop rocker Middle Part, nee Andy Selkōw, unleashes his heart on his latest single, "Nowhere." The gritty pop track, the second single off of his forthcoming album Disruptor, showcases an artist willing to take calculated risks to expand his sound and pens a hopeful anthem all about self-acceptance, living in the moment, and breaking free from shame and egotistical desires.
"Nowhere" leads the way with striking acoustic guitars and an enchanting collection of synths serving as the backdrop for Middle Part's signature dreamy vocals. Decadent, jangly electric guitar, rich bass, and catchy percussion patterns together create a moody melody that melds the worlds of alt-rock and pop to create a gem of a track. Poignant lyrics like, "Take my dignity, comfort me, I'm killing off my pride/ Fall in love, to heal my shame/ Break apart, to feel something/ I'll be fine, I feel like I'm somewhere" cut deep into the listener and shows that he is ready to heal, embrace positive change and express gratitude.
"This song is a refrain from all the anger that populates a lot of the record," said the artist. "It's a confession of wanting to choose self-acceptance over continuously worrying about what others may think. Appreciating the present moment rather than placing oneself at the center of the universe is the key theme."
"Nowhere" follows the release of his last single, "Get Fixed," a spirited and rowdy anthem that could easily soundtrack any coming-of-age comedy set in the early 2000s. It effortlessly channels the angst of growing up while wrestling with the acceptance of aging and the weight of regrets. Both tracks will be featured on the artist's debut album, Disruptor, an immersive collection of tracks that the artist has described as "a depiction of insanity" that will explore themes like depression, self-acceptance, and the challenges of aging.
