When we were all alone
Now the weathers cold
And I keep going places going places”
Following on from their latest single, Take Me Away; Places retains that classic sound and vibe we love from The Driver Era, of chilled out indie rock mixed with more up-tempo and grittier synth beats. Written and produced by Rocky Lynch, the idea for the song developed in the car while he was en route to see his girlfriend. The track kicks off with a soft, synth inspired drum beat, which continues throughout the track. With really mellow and easy-listening synth-rock sounds, the song embodies that relaxed Californian vibe; fading out to a stunning John Mayer-esque guitar instrumental.
It’s weird because I typically write songs about past relationships and experiences. But this time, it was about a current relationship.. it was a really weird feeling.Rocky Lynch on the inspiration behind Places
