Trace Mountains, the project of New York’s Dave Benton, has shared “Eyes On The Road / Heart of Gold,” a sprawling pair of singles from his upcoming album, HOUSE OF CONFUSION.
“‘Eyes On The Road / Heart Of Gold’ is a road song about self-discovery & heartbreak. The two parts which are broken up on the tracklist of the record chronicle a late-night drive on the road far from home. It’s written from a place of remembrance & reflection, with the narrator sort of ‘talking it out’ trying to make sense of their past,” says Benton. “As with many of my songs, this one blends a lot of unrelated life experiences into a loose narrative that I hope is evocative & relatable. It feels very personal to me though, drawing on my own life – my time touring in bands as well as my friendships & romantic life. I hope that the song feels somewhat like a transformative journey, because things have changed so much for me & I really hoped to capture the essence of that in this song.”
HOUSE OF CONFUSION is available for pre-order now and due on October 22nd via Lame-O Records.
