On October 28th, alt pop band, Nightly, released their newest assertive breakup single, “Lose My Number.” The release is fresh off the band’s biggest show to date in Los Angeles at the Avalon hosted by MuzicSwipe. The Nashville-grown band also made a return to their roots last month as they accompanied The Band Camino for a performance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. “Lose My Number” is their third single released this year, after “lover/loner” and “a million pretty pieces” in collaboration with the musician Fleurie.
Reflecting on this new track, the band notes,
“It’s a different energy for out band that we haven’t tapped into since our song ‘Honest.'”
The song holds the same bopping melody they’ve mastered in the rest of their discography but with this one, there is an assertive definiteness to it. The instrumentation creates a vibration which courses through with the pulsating of the bass and strong beat of the drum. The upbeat tempo is paired with sharp lyrics that bluntly say “I’m done with you.” This isn’t a melancholic breakup track; rather it’s a powerful assertion of no longer putting up with someone’s toxicity and stopping them from pulling you through the wringer again. The chorus of “You just wanna rip my heart in two/I don’t wanna let you/ I just wanna (La-la, la-la)/Let you go we’re through,” is one that can be chanted with freeing liberation. To let go of all that negativity so then you can just vibe.
Since the release of their anticipated debut album in 2020, the band has solidified themselves in the alt pop world, garnering over 300 million streams throughout their strong portfolio of tracks. If you’re ever in the need for late night bops as you drive home look no further. This single along with the band’s vibing debut album, night, love you, are going to be your salvation.
