Guyville, the Los Angeles based duo of Kat Hamilton and Emily Hulslander, have a natural talent for creating songs that combine elements of ‘90s rock, pop and country. As their name suggests, the legacy of Liz Phair brought these two powerful women together in songwriting bliss, and together, they strike the perfect chord, combining Hulslander's intelligent pop approach with Hamilton’s confessional lyricism.
A once in a lifetime connection, the pair’s sound is perfectly illustrated in their debut single, ‘Nothing’, which arrives recently alongside its official music video. A classic ‘end of summer jam’, the single combines elements of indie rock and ‘90s girl anthems with a sprinkle of Shania Twain. Celebrating that wonderful post-breakup feeling of having absolutely nothing for your ex, ‘Nothing’ is relatable, personal, and wonderfully charming.
Together, both artists explore the powerful theme of moving on from an unhealthy relationship and reaching a place of indifference, where you feel nothing for that person anymore. Featuring spirited vocals, vintage guitar riffs, and an intoxicating melody, it's the ultimate rock jam of the summer.
Alongside the single, the music video features Hamilton and Hulslander frolic in rose gardens and dance along sandy beaches. The result is a bubbly, tongue in cheek ode to getting over it and moving on. Check it out below.
Guyville was formed during your usual Los Angeles writing session in the Valley. What was unusual, was the easy flow and chemistry between the two prolific writers. Within a few hours, the duo had written their first song ‘Should’ve Never Dated’. Emily Hulslander had already made a strong name for herself in LA songwriting circles but was struggling to find another writer with who she could relax into the process. Kat Hamilton was newer to LA but felt unfulfilled as a writer. On that pivotal day, Emily and Kat found common ground in their failed relationships, artistic journeys and the women of the ‘90s.
