TUNE Jaunt - Nostalgia For The Present Moment
Toronto-based six-piece Jaunt opens the New Year with “Nostalgia For The Present Moment,” the lead single from their forthcoming full-length debut album. Recorded over three years and engineered in collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD drummer Alex Sowinsky and Louie Short, their newest collection serves to celebrate connection, creativity, and adaptation through the lens of home cooked pop and an endearingly adventurous spirit.
The title of the song, Nostalgia For The Present Moment, came well before any of the actual lyrics were written. However, the idea of being aware and in the moment helped to guide the overall theme of the song. It is about being open to change and how such an openness can foster new and better habits. The lyrics are a kind of post-mortem of past negative thought and behaviour patterns. It is about looking back with a sense of gratitude and calm that one no longer thinks or feels that way. It is a celebration of how we learn and change and forgive ourselves and others. - Tom Helliwell (lead singer/guitarist)
“Nostalgia For The Present Moment” will be self-released and available across digital formats on January 23rd 2020 with their debut album following in Spring.
