There’s a line in the press release that describes this song as ‘the most fun panic attack you’ll ever have’ and sure enough, ‘No Vision’, the debut single from Brooklynite artist and producer Jack Ladd under the guise of Guy Blue sounds like he’s on the verge of losing his shit. In a cathartic or destructive way, we’re not sure. Maybe both.

Ladd’s typically forthright in his explanation of the impulse behind the song: “I wrote No Vision when I was knowingly making a lot of bad decisions in my life. I was trapped in a self-destructive loop, and that spiraling momentum definitely found its way into the tracking. I think it’s a story a lot of people will relate to. We’re all compelled by destructive urges that have real consequences for those around us.”

It’s a fragmented, deliberately overloaded song that serves as the first taste of the forthcoming debut Guy Blue EP Arms Wide, arriving Friday June 3rd. We’ve got your first listen – get acquainted below.
