Nommo's new single, "Rainbo Sno," is an ode to the many facets of life in New Orleans. It highlights one of the few respites from the heavy heat of summer, the snoball. Defend New Orleans and Nommo have come together to present this enamel pin, our first wearable song, as a token of this tradition.

Lyrics:

I just take it as it goes
Melting hands and rainbo sno
Underwater mountain peak
Move your body move your feet
 
Metal arches domes of wood
Ancient ghosts misunderstood
Calico cats kneading dough
I just take it as it goes
I just take it as it goes

Whole house half full of foam
Broken bricks and roots of trees
Concentration skinned up knees
 
Charismatic in your hood
Even if it's bad it's good
What will happen? No one knows
I just take it as it goes

 

Written, Recorded, and Produced by Joshua Edward Bennett
Mastered by Michael He-Man

The three-day event celebrates the arrival of thousands of migratory birds from their winter homes in South and Central America. Grand Isle is often the first strip of land the birds come across during their long journey, and witnessing their mass migration through Louisiana was time well spent.
