Last month, Man Overboard’s Nik Bruzzese officially announced his solo project, Casa Loma, as well as the release of the project’s debut EP, This Is Coping, due out 5th June, 2020 via Pure Noise Records. Nik Bruzzese is premiering the third single off of the EP, “Olivia, Marley, and the Duck Pond,” via Brooklyn Vegan.
“Olivia, Marley, and the Duck Pond” follows the release of “Travelers” and “Famaglia” all three of which are off of the six-track EP, recorded at The LumberYard, the New Jersey recording studio Nik shares with Ace Enders of The Early November.
Bruzzese shares on the single, “After years on the road, I bought the house I grew up in from my mom. The name of the neighborhood is Duck Pond, and now I get to live there with my wife and daughters, Olivia and Marley. On the surface, this song is about giving my kids a home and how much it sucks for them that I know all the house’s secrets, because I spent almost a decade trying to sneak out of it. But on a deeper level it deals with darker stuff; me trying to give them a song, a message, for the day I’m not around.”
