Exclusive Premiere: Nashville Singer-Songwriter, Ryne Norman, Releases Dynamic New Single "LA // TN"
Last month, we gushed over Nashville artist Ryne Norman's vibrant single, "Stranger Things." Lucky for all fellow fans who are craving more 80s intricacies from him, Ryne is already back with a second single called "LA // TN."
When asked about the track, Ryne had this to say: "LA // TN" is sort of an ironic song. It’s making fun of the stupid conversations and problems that come with living in an over-saturated creative city. Masked in a feel-good (and sort of cliche) sound, it's presented in a way to remind us all to make fun of ourselves sometimes. I wanted to create something someone could dance to while realizing that maybe we don’t all have it figured out."
From the musical mastermind himself, this description of "LA // TN" rings true once you hear it. Wild, vivid percussion opens the song, shimmering and jangling beneath an animated guitar line. Ryne's pop-punk delivery effortlessly switches from airy falsetto to in-your-face howls, singing tongue-in-cheek lines like "If all your lips could talk about / Our fame and fortune / You got nothing good to say." Coming in at just over two and a half minutes, the track is a high-energy blend of futuristic synth tones and flashback 80s elements. On "LA // TN," Ryne Norman packs a punch, disguising a superficial and ironic subject matter through outbursts of skillful pop-rock instrumentation.
