When you start growing up and step into the "real" world, it can be a little bit scary and confusing, especially when you're not exactly sure what you want to do with your life (does anyone?). Philly band Littler's sweetly punk rock new single "Somewhere Else" (off their forthcoming album Of Wandering), is full of that transitional, inconstant quality. Over there is my career but I am not ready to grow up, sings the band's Madeline Meyer. It's a universal yet very specific feeling, and "Somewhere Else" "sums up a lot of what Of Wandering is trying to say about growing up, feeling a little lost, and the concern that when you're non-committal you're not building necessary roots," as Madeline said. Put simply, it's about figuring out who you are. Coming from Littler, the experience of finding yourself (and finding yourself on your own)—From here I get to miss you and have some things for me only—doesn't sound too bad at all.
