There’s nothing more natural than a cowboy in space.
“Collide” is a space Western, featuring a lonely desperado piloting a rocket ship, yearning for a love lost long ago. The production nods at classic psychedelic country with slide guitars and keyboards shimmering over a finger-picking background.
This song captures something special about what David Madras wants his music to be. He loves writing about nostalgia and loneliness, and what’s lonelier then outer space? In these days of social distancing, the lonesome plight of an astro-cowboy-naut is especially relatable.
