Dirt Nap is the second single from Brooklyn-based duo Passenger Peru who are soon to be releasing their self-titled album.
The melodies and arrangements on Dirt Nap float delicately above the clouds, however, the song itself contemplates what happens when you are six feet under the ground. The music juxtaposes the crashing realisation of the meaning of this song. It’s a marvelous track which is very Elliot Smith inspired – chirpy melodies against dark lyrics. As Justin Gonzales’ guitars soar and migrate, lead singer Justin Stivers ponders where our bones will end up and asks, “Will anyone care that your buried and gone?/Will anyone celebrate what you accomplished in your life?/Or will they just eventually build a highway over you and leave you forgotten?”

Passenger Peru is also offering four free albums (digital) from their former band, Pet Ghost Project, if you pre-order the cassette.
