Of the video Garbus says,
“The song and the video for ‘nowhere, man’ were created under conditions of feeling squeezed and pushed to the brink — relatively, of course. I wanted to ask, ‘How loudly do I have to shout and sing before I’m heard?’ And the video asks, too, ‘What am I not hearing?’ We hope the music brings energy and a strong wind of encouragement to those who are shouting and singing loudly for justice right now.”
‘nowhere, man’ follows the release of Tune-Yards’ 2018 fourth album i can feel you creep into my private life. Exploring Garbus’ place in the world, the album ruminated on race, politics, intersectional feminism and the environment, and was called “dance-pop at its most polyglot and polemical,” by The Sunday Times, “bright, vital and surprising,” by Gay Times and “an entertainingly disruptive blast of a record with a mirrorball lure,” by Uncut. That same year, Tune-Yards scored Boots Riley’s film Sorry To Bother You and released a critically acclaimed collaborative song ‘Mango’ with actor Lakeith Stanfield’s musical project Moors.
