Kevin Holliday — “Regrets”

Independent anti-pop hero Kevin Holliday makes twisty pool party jams, experimenting with various pop fusions steeped in funk sensibilities. The Brooklyn-based artist’s 2019 full-length Space Cadet housed fan-favorite “Grassblade Love” and laid groundwork for a series of singles drip-fed to listeners across the following two years.

Kevin Holliday’s latest single, “Regrets,” is prime summertime fare. Holliday’s delivery basks in the lounge-singer cool of restrained vocals. You can imagine him holding an old-timey mic, working the makeshift stage at a backyard party. The romance of the track is cheeky and elegant. Holliday’s writing has a slyness to it: simple images that have populated all our lives. Fingers running through hair, the push and pull of coy love—it’s all here.

“‘Regrets’ is about that feeling you get when you’re infatuated with someone, and you don’t know whether or not you’re going in too deep,” Holliday tells Audiomack. “It’s a good and a bad feeling, but it was really beautiful to see the track come together, ‘cause it was very natural. I was working with the same core group of creatives I’ve been working with since the beginning—it was very smooth.”
