Perth pop punk alt rockers NAUTICAL MILE premiere new lyric video “Where Do We Go”

Fresh off the recent release of their new EP “Embers” on Manic Kat Records, Australian pop-punk/alternative rock quintet NAUTICAL MILE are back to our pages with their new lyric video for the song “Where Do We Go”!

“”Where Do We Go” is similar to an internal monologue following a loss and the burning desire to be able to move on with your life.”, says guitarist Dan Ray.

“The song speaks about being angry with yourself and others in the wake of a tragedy or separation, and living in a state of denial and despair. The chorus speaks about being ashamed of these feelings and reflects how difficult it can be to open up and how unreasonable the anger welling up inside can feel. This track was one of the last written for the EP but we love the energy it brings and have a lot of fun with it live.”

Since 2018, Western Australia’s Nautical Mile have immersed listeners in an urgent and heart-on-sleeve sound, taking 00s alternative rock influence and splaying it with the best of modern day pop-punk. Nodding to the likes of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and fellow countrymen Trophy Eyes, 2019 saw the five-piece hit form at the first time of asking, with the release of debut full-length, ‘The Only Way is Through’.

Having already racked up over 1/2 million streams on Spotify, with just one album in the books, the Aussie outfit’s short term success has mirrored from record to live show, touring extensively nationwide and landing support slots with genre big hitters the likes of Hands Like Houses, Hawthorne Heights and Senses Fail.

Having spent the pandemic writing what would culminate in ‘Embers’, Nautical Mile caught the attention of US indie/punk label Manic Kat Records, with 2020 single “Purgatory” whetting the appetite for the blistering and emotive display of melodic alternative rock on the new EP.

“Where Do We Go” Lyrics:

Where do we go?

I’m sick of your lies. I know you don’t care, wasting time in thih despair
But you don’t know what’s going through my mind.
I’ve lost countless hours of sleep.
I’ve lost count of all the sheep, the thought of you wont comfort me.
It only brings me to my knees.

I wish I could forget your name, instead the words repeat until it doesn’t even sound the same,
Been trying to erase the memories of your face
You got me suffocating when I’m trapped in your embrace.

Take the anger out of me
the shame of feeling constant agony
And then you’ll know, and then you’ll know the real me.

Hiding my sins where nobody sees, the devil’s the detail that cures the disease
Been sitting alone, my mind running free, wondering what will become of me?
We plant the seeds, and watch them grow, learning the lessons to finally let go
Part of me wants to know, when we’re gone, where do we go?

I wish I could forget your name, instead the words repeat until it doesn’t even sound the same,
Been trying to erase the memories of your face
You got me suffocating when I’m trapped in your embrace.

Take the anger out of me
the shame of feeling constant agony
And then you’ll know, and then you’ll know the real me.

We plant the seeds, and watch them grow, learning the lessons to finally let go
Part of me wants to know, when we’re gone, where we go?
