You could be mistaken for thinking that Market Junction hail from a particular place in the USA. Hell, the hints are right there in the lyrics: “Unless a man’s in love with wind or dust or corn / There ain’t no reason to stay in Nebraska / I’d go home, but I don’t know / If a place like that exists anymore.” So. You’ve guessed it ? You haven’t guessed it, because Market Junction are a Texan band.
You see what we have here is a song, not biography, as singer Matt Parrish explains: “Home is not a place. It is a connection to another person. When you lose those people, you feel uprooted, disconnected, and lost. Being out on the road is hard on a relationship, yet the constant war inside us wages between the dreams we chase and the people we love. Sometimes the road wins and we are left with nothing but our own wanderlust.”
‘Nebraska‘ came out the end of last week, and is taken from Market Junction’s album ‘Burning Bridges’ which is out on August 7th
