No Home

Album: Lead to Light (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Nico Vega formed in 2005 in southern California and released their self-titled debut four years later. They are led by frontwoman Aja Volkman, who is married to Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds. The band got a helping hand from Volkman's husband on their Lead To Light album; Dan Reynolds co-produced the disc along with Tony Hoffer (Beck, Fitz and the Tantrums) and Tim Edgar.
  • This anthemic track was inspired by Volkman's move from Oregon to Los Angeles in the mid 2000s. She explained to MTV News it is about, "feeling alone in the world and sort of finding your home and making that home wherever you are."

    "There's a lot of people that feel lost and broken-hearted," Volkman added. "[The song] speaks to that - that part of each person that needs to create their own home to feel a space and a place in the world."
