Trace Mountains, the project of New York’s Dave Benton, has announced his new album, House Of Confusion, with a video for lead single “AMERICA.” The album is out October 22nd via Lame-O Records.
“‘AMERICA’ is a road song written from a place of disillusionment & desperation,” says Benton. “My guitarist Jim Hill created this video inspired in equal parts by Easy Rider, Wayne’s World & The Lord of the Rings to mirror the themes of the song in jest. Writing & arranging this song was a real journey for us, with lots of rewrites & changes. I almost cut the song from the album at one point because it was torturing me so much! I wanted it to be real but also lighthearted & upbeat. I think Jim captured that energy perfectly in his visual interpretation of the song.”
