Coming off the release of their highly anticipated debut album, Nashville-based band Nightly unveil the official music video for one of their most vulnerable tracks to date, “older.” Watch the official video HERE.
“‘older’ – this and ‘time online’ are by far the most raw and personal songs on the record.” explains Nightly’s frontman, Jonathan Capeci. “When I got the idea for this song, I just wrote tons of lines in my phone and on my laptop over the course of the weekend. By that Sunday, I had a couple pages of thoughts sifted through to create the verses. It was honestly very hard to narrow it all down. I feel like I could have easily made 3 songs with everything that I had written.“
“older” is on the band’s debut album night, love you., which released earlier this month. Featuring upbeat singles like “the car” and “you should probably just hang up,” to cinematic tracks “the movies” and “mess in my head,” Nightly, recorded and co-produced most of the album in quarantine with long time collaborator Keith Varon. Download/stream night, love you. in its entirety HERE.
Formed of cousins Jonathan Capeci and Joey Beretta, and drummer Nick Sainato, Nightly have released a steady stream of music since their 2016 debut honest EP, which featured the 10 million-plus streamed single “XO.” Having amassed over 100 million streams on their music across all platforms, the band is excited to finally have their first full-length album out in the world.
“From the beginning we’ve wanted to be an album band. ‘night, love you.‘ was the sentiment behind the band name, so in a way this is our semi-self titled debut,” explains Jonathan. “It’s deeply personal, and we couldn’t be more proud of this record. All of it was created in Joey’s basement which feels full circle from where we started, making songs in a tiny apartment. All of the songs were written this year with the exception of the closing track which is one of the first songs we ever wrote. We always knew that we wanted to save it for our debut record, now it’s finally yours.”
The music of Nashville band Nightly is made for moody introspection, for late-night daydreaming or driving with no real destination in mind. With their heart-on-sleeve lyrics and impassioned brand of alt-pop, each track feels as private as a secret and cathartic as confession. And in their sing-along-heavy live show—a highly visual event that adds new color and detail to the Nightly aesthetic—those songs take on a strangely unifying power, turning personal heartache into a shared experience.
