Ohio native Elisa Nicolas has released the music video for her exciting single “No Answers,” featured on her deeply emotional sophomore album, Year Of The Locust, released last month.

The single is an inspiring anthem. Featuring Nicolas’ soothing and comfortable vocals, the lyrics encourage listeners to accept unchangeable truths: “I read the news / But it’s yesterday’s / Today I’m finding out I still want tomorrow / So much to lose / But much more to gain.” The song ends on uplifting, orchestral violins; catchy lyrics and warm, melodious guitar make “No Answers” an unmissable single. 

The accompanying music video features raw footage of Nicolas herself singing the song in the studio, along with the guitarist playing a remarkable guitar solo. Her soulful aura resonates with the audience throughout the video. 

“No Answers” is one of eight stunning tracks that will appear on Nicolas’ second solo album, Year Of The Locust. The album debuts after a 12-year hiatus during which Nicolas collaborated with various artists on more than 45 notable projects. The experience she accrued over the years is illustrated throughout Year Of The Locust. The album is strung together by the recognizable and comfortable guitar and her beautiful voice. 

Fans of Joni Mitchell, Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann, and Sharon Van Etten should check out Nicolas’ music video and album.
