Highway Anxiety

Merge Records
This song from William Tyler’s much lauded ‘Modern Country’ LP was apparently inspired by an attack of agoraphobia back in 2013 in which he drove off the interstate he was travelling on and onto small back roads in search of some respite. You may expect the song therefore to relay a certain sense of urgency, tension or discomfort. Instead this beautifully gentle, dreamy and emotive guitar speaks of calmness serenity and beauty. Americana of the highest order.
