[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] KiND Slay the Dance Floor with “Conquer”

kind-2017-620

When we last heard from electropop outfit KiND, they released their very own ’80s inspired workout tape. The crew are back at it with an electro house banger called “Conquer,” and we’re thrilled to bring you the premiere. The bassline prowls around the beat while synths rip across the track with melodic abandon. Seductive South African grooves get us in the mood to mount an assault on the dancefloor.

Vocalist Gabe Vitek says, “‘Conquer’ is about fulfilling aspiration by persevering through fear and doubt. This song started with the bass line. We sampled an old battery powered Casio keyboard and transposed the sample down 2-3 octaves. The lyrics and melody were written during a camping trip on the Fiery Gizzard trail.”

KiND are set to release more singles throughout the rest of the year, but no show plans are currently scheduled. Listen to “Conquer” below.

[NO COUNTRY PREMIERE] Trevor James Tillery Unveils Expansive Pop Single “Equilibrium”

trevor-james-tillery-620

Indie pop songwriter Trevor James Tillery is a boomerang resident of Nashville that our city is lucky to have back. After living here from 2010 to 2014, Tillery moved to Los Angeles to pursue his musical career and explore life outside of the South. While on the west coast, he released the In Moonlight EP in March 2016, a dreamy and oftentimes dark exploration on religious detachment, sexual awakening, and modern relationships. Tillery made the move back to Nashville in October, so we’re excited to exclusively premiere his new single “Equilibrium.”

“Equilibrium” is the first track in a collection of monthly single releases called Together.Alone. The song showcases Tillery’s penchant for creating intimate melodies that bloom into wide-eyed, sweeping soundscapes. “Equilibrium” feels like the stepping into the light after being in the dim tunnel that In Moonlight explores.

“I wrote this song with one of my best friends of over ten years, Austin Ryan,” Tillery tells No Country. “It’s a song about yearning for inspiration and hope and then that joy when you find it again.”

Listen to Trevor James Tillery’s “Equilibrium” below.
