Kelly Hoppenjans releases indie pop digital single "Every Which Way"

Those who know indie pop songstress Kelly Hoppenjans from her 2017 release Dreaming Is Easy will love her new digital single Every Which Way, which The Deli premieres today. The two new songs on the release -- which drop officially on November 2nd -- showcase Hoppenjans's sound, with which fans of Ingrid Michaelson and Cat Power will fall in love. Both tracks on Every Which Way come from collaborations with other Nashville singer-songwriters: Hoppenjans worked on the title track with indie artist Natalie Royal, and the B-side "From Where I Stand" enlists the pop-folk lyrical skills of Jilian Linklater. Every Which Way precedes what's to come next for Hoppenjans, which includes a full-length album in 2019. Listen to "Every Which Way" below. - Will Sisskind


Safari Room plays The East Room on 11.02

Safari Room have been active since 2016, but they've spent the past year in a fervor of recording frenzy, putting out their single "Antelope" in June and then their EP Actual Feelings in July. The versatile indie pop group stems from the musical and lyrical brain of Alec Koukol, who employs the help of friends and fellow Nashville musicians Simon Knudtson, Emma Lambiase, and Nathan Gamble to help bring the songs to life. Safari Room have continued to track songs in the studio throughout the summer and fall, meaning that new music could be on the way. They'll play what they've been working on at The East Room on 11.02 with Luke Krutzke & the High Tides and Willix also on the bill. Take a listen to Actual Feelings below. - Will Sisskind

Gracie & the Valley release new singles in November ahead of LP

Gracie & The Valley have a sound like Sara Bareilles; light but cinematic, carefree while holding back a constant dread that threatens to bleed through the sheet music. Their latest single "Serotonin" speaks of chasing dreams and getting lost in the process; their upcoming tracks, which come from their soon-to-come LP Chrysanthemum, dabble in subjects just as heartwrenching. "Doorbell Dixie", which drops 11.02, speaks of nostalgic and unrequited love; "Did I Stutter", which follows on 11.09, chronicles an argument which showcases the vulnerability of love. Chrysanthemum releases on 11.16; Gracie & The Valley will mark the new LP with a show at The Basement. Take another listen to "Serotonin" below. - Will Sisskind


Freddy & Francine release video for "Half a Mind"

In July, we spoke at length about the track "Half a Mind" by Freddy & Francine, a soulful indie pop groove from the duo's latest EP Moonless Night. Just last month, the singer-songwriters released a music video for the song, which showcases their humor as well as their fine lyrical chops. Since we're a week or so away from Halloween, featuring a video that included ghosts -- as well as the symbolized facing of said ghosts -- seems appropriate. To give credit to the filmmaker: Danielle Mulcahy came all the way from Massachusetts to direct, film, and edit the video; she's the perfect choice, since she's known for her work with paranormal and extraterrestial subjects. Watch the video for "Half a Mind" below. - Will Sisskind
