Sereena releases funky "You Love Me"

On her new song "You Love Me," pop artist Sereena accomplishes two things: she sings her heart out with a ferocious yet sweet intensity, and blends jazz, R'n'B, and pop into a backbeat jam. There's a lot of interesting textures- a wash of synths, trap hats, a bold bass sound, and Sereena's intoxicating voice sits atop it all like royalty. The chorus is, simply put, anthemic, and will have you singing along in your head all day. Describing the "You Love Me," Sereena says: "I have trouble accepting love...if you can't tell." And I'll bet a lot of folks out there can relate. -Geena Kloeppel


Will Pellerin releases "Ain't Got The Heart"; plays the Basement with Charli Adams 8.13

 What did I say about male songwriters having a moment? Will Pellerin, who was the Deli's artist of the month back in June, released a single called "Ain't Got The Heart" back in June that demonstrates excellent storytelling, emotional complexity and humility. If you're looking to be shattered into pieces by a song, this is the one for you: "I'm not asking if you're coming back/ ain't got the heart for that," he sings, with a strange blend of fearlessness and sorrow that is simply painful. In a good way. Like, you won't be able to stop listening. Pellerin plays the Basement with another one of our favorite Nashville songwriters, Charli Adams, on 8.13. -Geena Kloeppel


Saint Nomad releases new single "River" from upcoming LP

 Saint Nomad may be Nashville-based, but, by-and-large, the band is international. Nikita, Ruslan, and Yan Odnoralov were born in Russia but raised in the US, which perhaps helps to explain the incredibly unique and complex set of electronic textures incorporated in the new singles from their upcoming LP Memento Mori. There is a rigidity in rhythm and tempo, but a playfulness in arrangement and vocals. "River" is pop, yet somehow not quite. There is a chorus hook to sing along to, yet I almost felt like a spectator throughout the song, watching three great musicians do their thing, thought without being invited in to participate. This listening experience was much different than with most bands, and to be quite honest, I loved it. Saint Nomad could play may me anything, and I'd be glad to just sit back and take it in. -Geena Kloeppel
