Shannon Vetter “Boundaries Baby” – you left me, remember?

Boundaries Baby‘ is the latest recently released single from Shannon Vetter, taken from their upcoming album ‘Holding Pattern‘ out March 1st.  The album finds the masc-presenting non-binary Vetter trying out a wide palette of musical styles from folk and Americana to the saxophone featuring semi-jazz of ‘Boundaries Baby‘, a song which tackles serious topics of setting limits and acknowledging self-respect in what could quite easily be taken for a light-hearted manner.  We dare you not to smile listening to this.

There’s the sense of a backstory of heartbreak and sorrow to this song, with a period of personal growth and then a successful time of moving on – to the extent that when the Ex’ reaches out and suggests a reconciliation the response is neither diplomatic nor so vague as to be open to misinterpretation “You had too much life to live / zero fucks to give / Didn’t care what I did with my life / I don’t care anymore what you do with your life.”  Well, yes, that does seems clear enough.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
