Pop Artist Kyle Reynolds Wants More Than the Weekend on “Friday Saturday Sunday”

kyle-reynolds-620

Weekend dates are great, but what’s so wrong with grabbing a Thursday morning coffee at Dose or squeezing in weeknight drinks at Rosemary? It’s the sort of question Nashville pop artist Kyle Reynolds asks with infectious single “Friday Saturday Sunday.” The beautifully produced anthem tackles convenience culture in the dating world, since love isn’t as easy as grabbing a Lyft or ordering from UberEats, right? The single is an exciting follow up of “Natural,” his 2017 collaboration with Russ Macklin.

Reynolds says, “I wrote the song with Sam Ellis in Nashville, TN, who’s one of my favorite people to write with. It was produced by him and another dude in LA named Daniel Weber. The song is pretty much about someone who just wants to hang out and mess around on the weekends, but can’t commit to a real relationship and show up on the weekdays.”

Listen to “Friday Saturday Sunday” below. We promise it sounds amazing any day of the week.

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Watch Kellie Besch’s Dreamy Cover of Sylvan Esso’s “Die Young”

kellie-besche-620

Forward-thinking indie pop duo Sylvan Esso saw the release of their second full-length album What Now accompanied by low-humming single “Die Young.” Local synthy songwriter Kellie Besch tackles the track in a live cover video exclusively premiering here at No Country for New Nashville. We loved Besch’s expansive pop sound on her debut EP, which makes for a thrilling fit for “Die Young.” Her succulent-adorned keys give the cover a prickly spike when the chorus hits, and Besch’s vocals do Sylvan Esso vocalist Amelia Meath’s original lines justice.

Besch elaborates on why she chose the cover, saying “My producer Nathan Gamble and I are obsessed with Sylvan Esso. I think they’re one of the most innovative bands out there right now. Nick Sanborn’s production is so complex and fun and completely marked by analog synthesizers (my favorite), and Amelia Meath’s vocals are downright dreamy. The combo of those two and the way they play with rhythm and syncopation is incredible. Exploring their music has always been a way for Nathan and I to learn new techniques and gain inspiration. ‘Die Young’ is my favorite song off of their new album What Now, released at the end of this past April,” Besch continues. “It’s really deep, lyrically — I had a lot of fun diving into it as we worked on this cover and finding new meaning each time I sang it. It’s sweet in a kind of cheeky way.”

Sylvan Esso play The Ryman on Sept. 22, but in the meantime, watch Kellie Besch’s live cover video of “Die Young” below.
