CT based Bonsai Trees have released one of their best songs to date on the widely thought to be magical date of 2/22/22. The band’s indie rock sound with emo influence shines through. Vocalist James Macpherson has the perfect vocal style to translate real emotion and passion. A line as simple as “goddamn I’m a piece of work” comes to life in a more complex way.
On the single, James says “It’s Gonna Be A No From Me Dog is a song about getting yourself wrapped up in the pressure of living up to people’s expectations while not even being sure if it’s what you want to be doing or if it’s even authentic. The chorus yelps “When you see that I can’t run, then you go and put up all the pressure of a gun” which outlines feelings of uncertainty in the situation, not being able to tell how I feel was a theme through this tune.”
