Nashville singer/songwriter Carter Vail is taking over the indie-pop music scene with new epic single ‘Nancy Again’
The song is reminiscent of Dr. Dog, The National, and Catfish & the Bottlemen, and is for long road trips and driving with the windows down.
Carter Vail released his debut single, “Melatonin.” Though unsigned and unknown, the song was placed on Spotify’s ‘Dreampop’ playlist, quickly gaining a grassroots fan base. After releasing several more singles, culminating in his debut album Red Eyes, Carter solidified his trademark feel good indie-rock anthems, drenched in chorused guitars & distorted synths, placing him sonically between Mac Demarco and The Killers.
The Interstellar Tennis Championship, the concept EP blended lo-fi, disco, indie rock, and bossa nova to tell the story of a boy traveling to space. Though light-hearted on the surface, the EP touched on themes of love, loss, and growing up. Carter began making short-form comedy songs in the Spring of 2021. Originally intended to showcase his production for other artists, these songs have since gained several millions of views on TikTok and Instagram, and have developed a cult following on social media.
Carter writes and records his music at his home studio in Nashville, along with his band, consisting of drummer Garrett Fracol, keyboardist Andre Bernier & bassist Reed Gaines. In 2021, the group signed to APA are currently touring the west coast. Fans can expect a new EP in late 2022 as well.
