Gritty and soulful in all the right places, Nashville-based Michael McQuaid’s “RERUN” begs to be listened to. With a dash of his Texan roots, McQuaid fuses blues, soul, and pop genres to bring a comforting familiarity to his also modern sound.
A definite ear worm, “RERUN” focuses on the passivity of a relational merry-go-round. Of the track, Michael McQuaid gives:
“I co-wrote ‘RERUN’ with an amazing artist/songwriter and close friend of mine in Nashville, Kat Saul. We wanted this song to be centered around this theme about a girl who comes over every week… for one thing only. 'Like clockwork everytime. Returning my jacket, then taking it back.’ Just like reruns on TV…They come on at the same time, you’ve seen them before, but there is a familiarity and comfort to it.
This song also creates an opportunity for some really cool visuals. I LOVE old school reruns. The 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air,’ 'I Love Lucy,’ 'Family Matters,’ 'Full House,’ 'Hey Arnold,’ 'Sister Sister’…so many good ones. Flipping through the channels late at night and seeing one of these on is the best! I’m working with artist/director Alison Geodde on the visual elements and we have some crazy ideas that I can’t wait to bring to life! Stay tuned.”
