Jess Abbott is releasing her sophomore Tancred album in a matter of weeks. Titled Nightstand, the album follows up 2016’s Out of the Garden. Its lead single and today’s song of the day, “Reviews,” is powerful and introspective indie pop at its finest. A major departure from the music she used to make with Now, Now (who, now a duo, are releasing their first album in 6 years this Friday, May 18), the song bursts while Abbott screams out her insecurities. Abbott has previously said of the song: “This new album takes a step back from the energy of my last album to bring in a little more vulnerability. I wanted to reconnect with myself and these songs document that process. ‘Reviews’ felt like the right first single because it holds some of that same propulsion the last album had, but also opens a secret door into a more introspective vibe present throughout Nightstand. It's a deeply personal song for me and I'm happy I can finally share it.” Nightstand is out June 1 via Polyvinyl. Tancred will play Neumos on Sunday, October 28 with The Joy Formidable.
