Watch & Listen
On their new album Glazed, *repeat repeat deliver a batch of songs entirely true to the album’s title: sugary and sticky and impossibly shiny, all glistening harmonies and candy-coated hooks. But beneath the gloss lies something more jarring and jagged, a raw vitality generated by the Nashville band’s buzzy rhythms and blistering guitar work. Fortified by the distinctly thoughtful songwriting of husband-and-wife duo Jared and Kristyn Corder, the result is an album that finds an unlikely power in irrepressible sweetness.
The follow-up to 2017’s Floral Canyon, Glazed marks a period of major growth for *repeat repeat, who’ve spent the better part of the last few years touring, highlighted by a 2018 debut at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts festival that saw them lavishly praised by Rolling Stone, who hailed them as “Most Enthusiastic Rockers”. In bringing the new album to life, *repeat repeat worked closely with producer Patrick Carney (drummer for The Black Keys and producer for such artists as Arctic Monkeys, Black Lips, and Tobias Jesso Jr.), immersing themselves in a more rigorous songwriting and recording process than they’d ever attempted before.
Through the years, the duo’s singular dynamic has manifested in *repeat repeat’s magnetic stage presence, with Jared bringing a joyfully rebellious spirit and Kristyn channeling a subtle effervescence. “The music we make is really an extension of our life together,” says Jared. “A day on the road is no different from a day on our honeymoon.” To that end, the title to Glazed partly nods to a greeting card Jared gave to Kristyn on a recent anniversary. “It was a picture of donuts and the message said, ‘You’re a rainbow sprinkle in a sea of glazed,’” Jared explains. “I thought that was a really sweet sentiment, but there’s also a double meaning to it: the world right now has such a frenetic energy, and it makes people kind of glaze over after a while. We wanted to create something that takes you out of that reality—music that makes you feel hopeful and positive and empowered, and just completely leads with love.”
