Kenneth Nixon on “Baggage Claim” ‘I’ve never been a fan of talking about the meaning behind a song to the songwriter, because it’s a songwriter’s goal usually to write a song that someone can relate to themselves. It’s funny, though, because when people hear this song, they’ll likely have a much different takeaway than what this song means to us. This song was written about the stranglehold that music, and moreover, the music industry had on us 4 years ago when we first considered walking away. Just the feeling of wanting to change one’s identity, everything about oneself, to have a fresh start. Yet every time we tried to distance ourselves from music, it was right there; threatening to pull us back under.’
The first song “Puzzle Pieces” was released this summer and has already surpassed 2 million streams.
Details for Sumner Roots pre-order bundles will be available soon with the announcement of album artwork and tracklisting.
