I received an email from Traffic Nightmare a while back that read, “My name is Kevin, I’m 20 and my tunes are mostly about death and Star Wars… I play guitar, banjo, bass, drums, ukulele, Fisher Price grand piano, and forks”. Needless to say, I was intrigued. And man… the tracks were so good! There’s something about his voice that sounds so young and good natured. The first track, “Strangers” is a minimal acoustic driven song with echoed vocals, a real bedroom recording, but for what it is it still sounds great. The other track is a Peter Bjorn and John cover of Young Folks. A song I hadn’t heard in a long while – but his version with a banjo is stunning. Listen, below.
