Americana singer-songwriter Kilough released her new single, “Follow Me,” on October 1. Accompanied by a simultaneous lyric video release, this is the final single preceding her upcoming EPexpected in early 2022. “Follow Me” is inspired by Kilough’s recent move to Nashville in pursuit of her music career, and ruminates on the importance of appreciating loved ones to the fullest extent. “When all is said and done,” she says, “friends and family are what give our time meaning.” Following recent singles "What If" and "Miles & Months," the Nashville artist captures the essence of the EP perfectly. Fans can expect varying palettes of textures and colors painting vivid imagery of love, youth, and change. This single embodies the last few years for Kilough, honoring the incredible people and refreshing change of pace that came with settling in Nashville. “Follow Me” is a tender declaration of appreciation for those that push us to be our best selves.
Kilough’s delicate, bright vocals lead listeners through a musical journey on “Follow Me”. The track transitions from openness and colorful chorditure in the first half to a pop-kissed finale embellished with powerfully stacked background vocals and rhythmic acoustic guitar. Kilough reflects on the creative process for “Follow Me” as “an incredible new experience, because it was an opportunity to work with new instruments and techniques that [she] had never featured.” The heartfelt single manages to deliver an undeniably catchy melody while capturing the full scope of Kilough’s experience relocating to Nashville. The dynamic sound achieved on this track is an enticing showcase of a never-before-tapped-into side of the singer-songwriter’s artistry. Characterized by sweetness fused with a subtle longing, the artist hopes fans find a bit of themselves in these personal stories.
