Nicholas Krgovich will release his forthcoming album, The Hills, in March, and today he’s sharing its latest single. “The Place Goes Quiet” is an upbeat number that follows “Backlot Detail,” which we premiered back in December. Krgovich explained where and when he wrote the new song:
This song was written May 13th, 2010. I was up at my aunt and uncle’s lake house for a week writing songs. I remember it was sunny out and the grass in the yard looked long so I stopped whatever I was working on and cut it. This song happened out of the satisfaction of the lines in the freshly cut grass, looking out over the low picket fence around the yard and out onto the lake. I felt like making something breezy and lite. I started imagining a shopping excursion on Rodeo Drive in the mid to late 80s. Like the photographs of shoppers by street photographer Anthony Hernandez. I didn’t mean for this to be like a D grade “Steppin’ Out” but that’s what I ended up with. Now I mainly just enjoy hearing Karl and Marissa and Terry sing all the weaving counter-melodies. There’s always something.
The Hills is out 3/4 via Tin Angel Records.
