New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth the premiere of “Goodbye Letter” by Nate Allen & The Pac-Away Dots. The song is a socially conscious stream of being in the rock and roll scene with the current state of affairs. With a slight western vibe to the song, it feels as if the narrator is in a duel with himself, trying to find a better way to place his voice in the world. Watch the music video below, and listen to the record Take Out The Trash!

“Elements of blues, punk and folk line the foundation of this rock and roll record. Written by an unemployed workaholic, Take Out The Trash covers the identity struggle between projecting a good image and actually being a kind person. The serious-but-hopeful lyrics are contrasted by a lighthearted beat, gang vocals and sometimes a kazoo, banjo or harmonica. Nate Allen (one half of the zany duo Destroy Nate Allen) is a white man in his 30’s taking a stern look in the mirror, acknowledging privilege and pain, and inviting you to Take Out The Trash.” – Nate Allen

Goodbye Letter was Directed, Filmed and Edited by Jessie Van Der Vyver.

The Pac-Away Dots exist in the cathartic space between plaintive indie rock, soul-bearing folk, blunt southern blues & jagged rock n’ roll. Their punk-informed songs are vintage heart-on-the-sleeve Nate Allen (of Destroy Nate Allen) and his merry band of Pac-Away Dots help to drive things home with an energetic and electric flair.
