The first single from Pictoria Vark’s forthcoming debut album The Parts I Dread, "Wyoming,'' out February 8 via Get Better Records, presents a power-pop adjacent trip through adolescence, contending with feelings of driftlessness and homesickness through neon-lit alternative rock stylings. Separated into two distinct passages—vignettes of a New Jersey childhood throughout the verses, which segue into a frustrated release on the chorus—the song instrumentally evokes the parallel emotions of nostalgia and estrangement Park experienced during its inception; glittering playing and cool vocals create a sense of nonchalant movement, slowing only momentarily to provide space for cathartic, distorted deliverance.

"As I spent time hopping between Wyoming, Iowa, Paris, and New Jersey, these places that inform where (and what) is home started to bleed together," Vark recalls. "I felt like I was missing New Jersey in Wyoming, and missing Wyoming in Iowa. It didn’t make any sense to me—this track is about that feeling."
