"No More Dancing" is a sweetly melancholic Americana tune by Five Islands

"No more dancing in the evening / you are free, no longer mine" is one of many bittersweet images in Five Islands' new single "No More Dancing." A fiddle skillfully weaves in between lyrics like a third singer or a memory, threading the different sections of the song together. The whole thing makes you wanna sit back, reminisce and let out a little sigh. Be sure to catch Five Islands when they play the Local on 8/19. -Geena Kloeppel

Sereena releases funky "You Love Me"

On her new song "You Love Me," pop artist Sereena accomplishes two things: she sings her heart out with a ferocious yet sweet intensity, and blends jazz, R'n'B, and pop into a backbeat jam. There's a lot of interesting textures- a wash of synths, trap hats, a bold bass sound, and Sereena's intoxicating voice sits atop it all like royalty. The chorus is, simply put, anthemic, and will have you singing along in your head all day. Describing "You Love Me," Sereena says: "I have trouble accepting love...if you can't tell." And I'll bet a lot of folks out there can relate. -Geena Kloeppel


Will Pellerin releases "Ain't Got The Heart"; plays the Basement with Charli Adams 8.13

 What did I say about male songwriters having a moment? Will Pellerin, who was the Deli's artist of the month back in June, released a single called "Ain't Got The Heart" back in June that demonstrates excellent storytelling, emotional complexity and humility. If you're looking to be shattered into pieces by a song, this is the one for you: "I'm not asking if you're coming back/ ain't got the heart for that," he sings, with a strange blend of fearlessness and sorrow that is simply painful. In a good way. Like, you won't be able to stop listening. Pellerin plays the Basement with another one of our favorite Nashville songwriters, Charli Adams, on 8.13. -Geena Kloeppel
