If the name Nightly sounds familiar to you, it could be thanks to OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, who featured the group's song "XO" in a playlist he made for USA Today in October. The Nashville-based band released three other songs on their debut EP, Honest, last fall, and now they're premiering the video for "No Vacancy" on Billboard.
Frontman Jonathan Capeci's haunting vocals are accompanied by an equally affecting video, showing Capeci and guitarist Joey Beretta playing the tune in a dark room with flickering white and purple lights. While there isn't much to the visual other than a performance, it certainly brings out the emotion that "No Vacancy" presents -- while also bringing things back to where they all began for Nightly.
"'No Vacancy' is probably the most personal and intimate song on our EP, but I think it's that vulnerability that has made this song one of the tracks people have connected to the most," Capeci tells Billboard. "This video was shot in our garage in Nashville. It's a special place for us because in this garage we wrote our first songs, showcased for the labels, and signed our record deal."
In line with the "No Vacancy" video release, Nightly kicks off their headlining tour of the same name Thursday night (April 13) in Cincinnati. Saint Mesa will serve as the band's opener for this tour, and then Nightly will set out on a co-headlining tour with Urban Cone in May. Tickets for the co-headlining tour go on sale Friday.
"We're so excited to tour and bring these songs to life on the road," Capeci added. "The most gratifying part of being in a band is singing with and meeting fans."
