California’s TRAILS AND WAYS released a brand new track today. Titled “Border Crosser,” it’s a dreamy, weaving indie rock track with haunting whistles and keen, cutting beautiful guitar work during the chorus. According to the band, it’s about their immigrant grandparents and “dedicated to immigrants everywhere.” It’s a moving subject — and one that almost all of us can relate to — and the four-piece portray it well, with sounds of howling, chugging trains, lyrics sung in a different language, and lines about an immigrant’s complex journey of leaving home for an unfamiliar place: “Will you follow me across? / You know I have to think about it.”
“Border Crosser” is the lead single from TRAILS AND WAYS’s forthcoming full-length, Trilingual. Free download via the band’s Facebook page.
