JVLY drops new single ‘here’

Australian singer/songwriter/producer Kayle Butler (A.K.A. JVLY), has released his third single of 2023.

Over the last few months, Kayle has been busy working on a collection of new music which he’ll be sharing with us throughout this year. So far he’s given us two exceptional singles — ‘ambien‘ and ‘tacit‘ (featuring Una Mey). This time around the Australian music maker slows it down and envokes his r&b/soul side.

“As a songwriter and a producer, I think ’here’ is the most complete song I’ve made so far. When I first started playing this on the night I wrote it, before I had lyrics, to me something about the feeling of it seemed to perfectly capture the mood of that in-between state of one foot moving forward but the other a bit stuck in the mud of nostalgia. The chords and the whole groove just felt so sentimental, but not in a gloomy way, more like just a reflective feeling I think. My friends Max (Golden Vessel / 1tbsp) and Tom (from my live band) came in to add some extra magic which really lifted it too. I don’t really write lyrics down anymore; I tend to overthink it when I do. I always have my demos with me on the train or walking around the city or wherever, and I have these headphones that almost seem to mute the world, something about just seeing the faces and everything going by while listening seems to help me find what I’m trying to say.”

‘here’ is out now.
