Exclusive Stream: Nocturnal Me

With Nocturnal Me's Apparition Records debut Two Faced to be released soon, Review Rinse Repeat is glad to present a new song titled "Weeknd", the 'weirdest' song Dave Melilo has composed to date. As he said in our recent interview with the band, it's a song that's sure to "ruffle some feathers". Not only do we have the song for you, but also some Artist Insight from Dave himself - how the song came about and what it all means. Check it out, and be sure to leave your thoughts below!


Weeknd by apparitionrecords


"I always wanted a song that I could play before a night out on the town with my dudes. Something to put us in the right state of mind for the night of our lives. That's how "Weeknd" was born. I received the instrumental track from my friend Dave Siegel, a world renowned producer/composer from Miami, FL... The song was originally a reference track for Elijah King, but once he didn't bite on the idea I decided to rework some of the lyrics and melodies and turn it into a Nocturnal Me track. 

Now, I'm sure a lot of people will wonder if these lyrics come from experience. I've been known to be a sweet kid for most of my life, but there are a few times that I've been forced to break my mold and join the swag movement of the 21st century. Unfortunately, the feeling that inspires me the most during songwriting is heartbreak, and this song was no different. I wrote this song after being torn apart… Maybe a better title for it would have been "Rebounder"? Either way, this song is all about having fun, being with your friends and blacking out. Drink responsibly." 

 

Two Faced will be released July 19th via Apparition Records. Pre-orders can be found here.

Nocturnal Me also have their first two EPs available for free download for one week only on Bandcamp.
