Valley Maker has a new album coming up next month.
Valley Maker is streaming another delightful slice of Americana in the form of No One Is Missing, with his new album When The Day Leaves set for release on February 19th.
“The video for No One Is Missing was filmed on Edisto Island in South Carolina’s lowcountry by dustoftheground,” he says. “It’s a lush, isolated place.
“The beach where we filmed is only accessible at low tide and is full of dead trees. I felt like that tidal flow, combined with the generally surreal and outside-of-time quality of the landscape, provided a spatial and visual connection with where No One Is Missing is coming from as a song.”
“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.”
