Bailey Callahan is releasing her album The A & B Sides on June 4, 2021. Today she releases the music video of the single “City Lights.” Produced and directed by Logen Christopher for Storm Light Pictures, the clip was shot on the streets of downtown Nashville with the illusion of being in New York City.

“‘City Lights’ is the deepest song I’ve ever written,” said Bailey. “In the moment of writing it, I didn’t realize how much it matched up to what I was going through until after the fact. It’s not only the deepest song I’ve recorded, but also the most vulnerable. I think admitting you’re not okay is a really strong thing to do. This song was about me being lost and looking for a way to ease my mind/heart.” 

Bailey wrote four of the songs on The A & B Sides solo and partnered with Jared Anderson, Johnny Clawson, Davis Branch and Kyle Sturrock on the remaining five. The album was produced by Robbie Artress (Priscilla Block).

May says of the glittering new track, “I C” was built on a noodly little guitar riff I wrote–it’s one of the few more guitar-heavy songs on Easy Bammer. The lyrics come from a place of deep frustration, of wanting to get out of a situation I felt trapped in. Tony 1 was messing around and landed on those little whistles you hear throughout. I think the production throughout the album has a lot of humor.”

Produced by Tony or Tony and mastered by Sarah Register (Ariana Grande, Yaeji, The Shins), Easy Bammer is inspired in part by time spent touring with Poppies, as well as the year the world went into lockdown. On her debut solo album, May turns months of isolation into a curious & hyperreal reflection on memory of a time in New York City before stay-at-home-orders and lukewarm take-out—reflections on a time when staying at home & thinking felt like an unreasonable request of the cosmos. Easy Bammer gives its listener a chance to experience the warmth & quiet laughter of reflection; it does so in a time otherwise reserved for most as an endless cycle of waiting for new headlines.

The release also comes with the #TimesUpRemix competition, encouraging Black women and non-binary people across the world to submit their best verse for “Time’s Up.”

Miranda and the Beat announce their Third Man Records debut 7” featuring “Chillantro” and “Such a Fool” coming out on Friday September 18. The band began as a duo of Miranda Zipse and Kim Sollecito. They now include Dylan Fernandez and Mike Roth, as well as many guest stars. The band has a style that is retro R & B meets surf and soul.

“The world has been through a lot in the past six months, and the music and art that will emerge will certainly reflect the times,” said the band’s Miranda Zipse. “I am excited to see the creative ways that artists adapt and reinvent their mediums and processes due to limited resources. ‘Such a Fool’ was written before COVID, but I made the music video in quarantine at home in New York City. Being very limited in what I could do with the resources I had forced me to create something I would have never normally created.” https://www.instagram.com/miranda_andthebeat/
