Fiery like Florence, dark like Dacus, Medley crafts drama and whimsy with "Buzz," released March 2020 through Elektra Records.
Plucking strings layered over xylophone evoke imagery of the childish danger of tiptoeing across lava floors. Constant tension in the chorus, "Please get too close to me, when I push away, let me push away, please," haunts alongside alluring echoes. If young, profound love can be articulated, this song is in the running.
As any Nashvillian, like 22-year-old Medley, knows, March was detrimental. An F-3 Tornado ripped through cherished neighborhoods, decimating one of the most beloved live music venues. Not one week later, the pandemic required other venues to shut down. Before March, Medley won fans through her chilling performances. Despite live shows laying in a COVID coma, Medley's most recent release gains steady streaming momentum. One can only contribute her thought-provoking poetry and enchanting tone to promising success.
