Tempe, AZ-based three-piece Miles To Nowhere have created their own unique sound they dub “galaxy punk” and are sharing more of their signature style with the new song and video “Race Cars.”
The band—consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Kristen Taylor, vocalist and bassist Katie Grenert, and drummer Richard Duran—collectively have decades of experience in the music industry, less influenced by other bands and more so by life itself, to take listeners on a musically induced adventure.
The band released their new album, The RaceCar Phenomenon, on September 1, surging with upbeat vibes surrounding the often dark but insightful lyrics throughout the track list.
Taylor speaks more about the new track: “‘Race Cars’ is unique because it is the first acoustic song we have recorded. The song is actually about a race car painted on the side of the freeway several years back. It started as a skid mark on the side of a sharp freeway onramp that a graffiti artist took a spray can and turned it into an outline of a black, Formula One car. It was there for probably five years until one day, it was just gone. Strangely enough, the race car itself was big and eye-catching, but many people who were daily drivers of that route often don’t remember it at all.”
She continues, “So it’s fun to think about the possibility of it being some sort of Mandela effect right here in the town I live in. Regardless of if it is or not, it essentially doesn’t even matter. It is just fun to think about and makes an interesting conversation topic. The song also adds diversity to the album and shows a pure, raw side of Katie and I musically. She gets to change it up and play guitar on it, and of course, she slays the harmonies, as usual. I wrote that song while we were recording the rest of the album to kind of cap it off, which it does quite nicely.”
The band are planning a livestream show for November 14, followed by a show at the Marquee Theater in Tempe with Authority Zero on December 18.
