LA singer-songwriter Patrick Park shared with American Songwriter “Dust and Mud” from his new LP Love Like Swords, out April 22.
Speaking to Songwriter, Patrick:“This is one of my favorite songs on the new record, and one of my favorite songs to play live,” Park says. “I like playing it because every time I do it’s like a little reminder for me to just let shit go. I remember I was driving around Los Angeles one day, and (this is not uncommon), I watched these two guys get out of their cars and start screaming at each other. There was no accident or contact between their cars or anything, but they obviously both perceived that some injustice had been wrought against them by the other. I was watching this and it just kind of hit me that their anger and frustration toward one another, actually had absolutely nothing to do the situation they were in, or with each other.”
