EXCLUSIVE: The Tuesday Crew Drops Their Dreamy New Single "Summer Lovin'"
You know those warm summer nights when you're lounging in the pool, floating endlessly as the sun starts to go down, and you're surrounded by your friends and everybody's just being, just existing together, and it feels like nothing you've ever felt before?
We're not sure if there's a word for it -- "bliss" comes close -- but there's definitely a song for it. Made by a couple buddies for you and yours, "Summer Lovin'" is the warm jazzy anthem you didn't know you needed. That's all thanks to The Tuesday Crew, comprised of two of the most delectable Nashville voices you'll ever hear: Jordy Searcy and Stephen Day. Teaming up with their friends Jude, Scooter, Andy, and Thomas, the guys drummed up this little tune on a Tuesday in May in Andy's basement, decided it was "pretty nifty" (their words -- we'd go so far as to say it's very nifty), and built their brand new band around it.
We're damn glad they did because "Summer Lovin'" is a dream. The track opens with woozy, slow-rolling instrumentation beneath Jordy's sweet croon followed by a falsetto harmony bopping as the percussion grows. Next come Stephen's gravely soul vocals, gruff at first, then holding its power high. From then on, the guys toss verses to each other, a beautifully sultry vocal collaboration that soars above zippy piano sparkles, percussive shimmers, and drunken strings. "Summer Lovin'" sizzles with soft summertime energy, a late-night anthem drowning in soul and languishing in the sonic paradise that The Tuesday Crew have sculpted.
Mimicking the drowsy bliss of its audio, the music video accompaniment (which you'll get to see coming up super soon -- stay tuned) directed by Drew Bauml (who is definitely part of The Tuesday Crew, btw!) has more of that sugary soul, but with a vintage twist. We watch Jordy and Stephen crippled by boredom on one of those endless summer days before they commune for a good ol' Tuesday Crew sailing expedition in the pool, because, you know, where else would they possibly go sailing? Drew's work on the cinematography is gorgeous, coloring each scene with light-tinted palettes for that dreamy retro effect, effectively creating a fun, hazy visual for an equally bewitching track.
