Spec Lab musician, Nick Brode, is passionate about traveling, and he brings that subject to the forefront in his latest piece, "Let's Get Out of Here." The mood of the song is a wistful, bittersweet one, with music evocative of 1970's singer/songwriters such as Cat Stevens and James Taylor. The crisp, autumnal sound of the acoustic guitar, ukulele, and 12-string, combined with Nick's yearning yet fluid vocals set the right atmosphere for a good road song. Of course, this would be a "road song" for those sweet and sentimental times you feel like you miss something or someone from far away, not a fast and furious "Born to Be Wild" type of road song. From the very first verse, during which Nick sings, "Getting bored. Need someplace new," he makes it clear that he has a thirst for adventure. Sights, people, food, nature, you name it! Nick mentions it all in this song, and he is ready to explore the world beyond his home and all the riches it has to offer!
