With their debut 7″ The Passenger available for preorder as of yesterday, the Philly-based psychedelic indie band The Interest Group gave us a peek at its slow and swaying b-side, “Vagabond Dreamer.” Listen as the softly-plucked ballad strings together delicate harmonies, whispering Spanish guitar and poetic lyrics about an autumn love. “The thing about ‘Vagabond Dreamer’ is that lyrically it was written through stream of consciousness, yet it’s a story,” songwriter Yohsuke Araki tells Interview Magazine. Read how both Araki and songwriting partner, Marissa Lesnick, interpret the song here. Purchase a vinyl or digital copy of The Passenger 7″ here. Listen to “Vagabond Dreamer” below.
