The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Monday, August 24
What’s a gigging musician on-the-go to do, but swipe right for companionship?
Jaymes Brass knows the feeling. The Arkansas native wrote “The Tinder Song” when he was a regular on the cover band circuit, where late nights and noisy bars led to a low period filled with loneliness.
As these difficult emotions became more pronounced, Jaymes decided to put what he was feeling on the page, creating a relatable narrative on a lo-fi backdrop for anyone who has ever searched for love in the 21st Century.
“When I sat down to write this song, I tried to throw everything that I knew about songwriting out of the window,” said Brass about “The Tinder Song,” which serves as a sonic departure from his typical blend of funk, rock, and soul. “I used this really battered 1950’s Kay acoustic guitar. Some of the frets are naturally out of tune because of how worn they are, but it has that certain oldies sound.”
If you’ve ever swiped the night away (right or left), this one’s for you. Catch the vibe of “The Tinder Song” below!
