NIGHTLY – XO
Written by: Drew Phomvongsa
This indie pop anthem is one hell of a debut from Nashville-based duo, NIGHTLY. Perfect for a night out, this momentarily-love song is making huge waves after debuting on Nashville’s ALT 98.3FM about 2 months ago (yes, I’m sorry I’m so late, but I arrived to the party haven’t I?). The track pulses with dark synths, heavy melodic guitar, sweet bass-heavy percussion, and topped off by a silky-smooth, indie-rock vocal producing an infectious pop melody (my favorite being: “I can’t focus when you’re with me / I can’t sleep when I’m alone”). The chorus’s instrumental has hooks on top of hooks and it’s sure to be an irresistible tune.
You can check out “XO” below and add them to your summer playlist, or keep it on repeat just like I have. I’ll be waiting patiently for more, NIGHTLY.
