Noah Gundersen Ponders On The Modern Existential Crisis With ‘Dry Year’ [Stream]

Former indie-folk now alt-rock singer-songwriter Noah Gundersen, just released his long-awaited third full-length album White Noise, to fans curious to hear his new sound. Many were pleased to see that even with his departure from quieter-folk songs to more cranked up rock-and-roll jams, the feeling and authenticity of Noah Gundersen is still heard all over the album. While there are a variety of different alternative and rock influence-driven tracks on the album the twelfth track, “Dry Year”, is definitely proof that Noah is not saying goodbye to his old sound altogether.

“Dry Year” is a gut-wrenchingly honest and confessional view at thoughts that make up an existential crisis in today’s age. With a melancholic stripped-down acoustic guitar Noah vulnerably asks questions like, “are these my feet going through the motions/ are these my feet learning how to dance?” showing us the balance of dwelling in the mundane while still trying to inflict change. The culmination of all of these thoughts and observations leads up to the one of last lines, when Noah sings “tell me where all of this is going to?” As you listen to this song, you begin to ask your own questions or just realize that you have the same ones as he does, which is one of the many reasons we love Noah Gundersen so much.
