"'Waiting to Begin' is a song inspired by the constant struggle of becoming too busy or driven to live or enjoy life; whether you're an artist or working the nine-to-five, you've got to put things on pause once in awhile and appreciate why we're in this mess and how we can make the most of it," Patrick explains. "That's the feeling I wanted to convey, from my own perspective as an artist to everybody out there feeling the same fatigue chasing down lofty goals or obligations when we should really be living in the moment and doing what we love, day after day."

"Stay" a song from King Park speaks about the heartbreak of losing a loved one. This song was originally inspired by Murphy from Interstellar when her Father is on the other side of the galaxy. The chorus in the song “I watch our clocks move further away, I asked you to stay” alludes to the conversation between Murphy and her father before he leaves.
"We are proud of the songs ability to capture aspects of the movie while maintaining the much more real emotion of loss. I think that the movie itself does an excellent job of this - being such a grandiose film while hitting people on a very raw and personal level, we like to think our song does the same thing."
"Stay" is off their upcoming album ‘The Light I Can’t See.
Based out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Nick Anderson has a voice that takes you into the deepest parts of yourself. At the age of 17, he was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder that leads to depression. As he sat in his basement lost in the darkness of his own mind, a song came on the radio that made him feel like he wasn’t alone. This moment, along with the tools he discovered to manage his mind, solidified a career in music.
As a mental health advocate, and an honest writer, Nick Anderson plays reflective music that digs deep into the emotion of the millennial dreamer, pursuing a style that blends alternative, folk, and power-pop with deep lyrical introspection. His influence is drawn from the likes of John Mayer and James Bay.
His newest release, EPHREM I & II, is a six-track release that puts Anderson's lyrical and songwriting talents on display, backed by his band The Skinny Lovers. Nick wrote the release in an apartment in the basement of an old tire factory called Banbury Place that had a good price. It had one single window peering just above the sidewalk outside. It went on to receive a great response on radio, charting number 1, 12, and 18 in Florida, 8 in Massachusetts, and 24 in Iowa.
Nick has opened for Cartel, The Summer Set, This Providence, and The Millenium, as well as toured the Midwest with platinum selling rock band Saving Abel (Addicted, 18 Days). He has also secured sponsorships with Reverend Guitars and Dean Markley Strings, in addition to working with mastering engineers Emily Lazar and Randy Merrill (Foo Fighters, Beyonce, Adele, Bieber).
The new EP from Lunar Lander Dance Commander (LLDC) “Liquid Smooth”, is a Synth Rock synergy that showcases the band's personality to the highest degree with a captivating and natural texture in production, while retaining the grit of a modern rock band. Similar to artists like The B-52s or Metric, this eccentric and talented group will definitely leave a good impression and a desire for more.
"We are so excited to have released our debut EP upon the world! Fun fact: It is called "Liquid Smooth" because this was originally the name that Chris and Donny wanted to call the band. Steph and Steve didn't like the name so we all compromised and decided to name the debut EP this instead. We all agreed that Lunar Lander Dance Commander was a kick ass name for the band so we went with that in the end. Woo, team work!!
