Australian singer/songwriter/producer Kayle Butler, also known as JVLY, is known for his unique blend of R&B/Soul music with indie-dance and alternative-pop influences. After the success of his recent release ‘ambien,’ which collected over 40k streams on Spotify alone and received airplay on Triple J’s Home & Hosed program, JVLY is back with his latest single ‘tacit.’
The elegantly soothing single, featuring the melodious Una May, explores the unspoken connections between two individuals. As JVLY explains, “It’s a story of rekindling or reviving something if you look at it directly, but what I found most interesting, and what I was trying to shed light on, is the instance where two humans can have a complete understanding of each other’s thoughts without a single word exchanged.”
The word ‘tacit’ means ‘understood or implied without being stated,’ and the track delves into the strange and often confusing language that happens between two people. The song talks about that moment of instant understanding that can occur between strangers, friends, or loved ones. It’s a wordless but powerful connection that can’t be explained, but it’s felt deeply.
Una May’s special guest appearance adds another layer of magic to the already mesmerizing track. She previously featured on JVLY’s 2018 single ‘milk&honey,’ and her soulful voice blends perfectly with the song’s soundscape.
The instrumentation and production on ‘tacit’ are exceptional. The song’s mellow and dreamy vibe transports listeners to a world where unspoken connections are celebrated, and emotions are felt deeply. It’s a song that will make you want to close your eyes, take a deep breath, and immerse yourself in the moment. The wavy background synths also help add to the tranquility as well.
It goes without saying…JVLY’s latest release ‘tacit’ is a wordless ode to unspoken connections. It’s a song that captures the essence of those moments when we feel understood without having to say anything. ‘tacit’ is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates soulful music that touches the heart.
Give it a listen, and as always, turn it up.
