Much of Dawes' time between the release of their last album North Hills and the creation of their latest endeavor Nothing Is Wrong was spent constantly touring, and as any musician will tell you, life on the road can get quite lonely at times. Being away from family and friends for an extended period of time was evidently hard on the band, as this hackneyed theme of not really knowing where home is anymore makes itself present many times throughout Dawes' new record.
