The power of the chorus lift is foreshadowed by a mid-tempo punk-shuffle, along with some electric guitar to punctuate the changes. A big vocal harmony and some double-hits on the kick drum keep the energy flowing, while thick power-chords create a seething backdrop for the lead vocal that navigates between whisper and shout with finesse.

Sorry, I'm busy, the latest single from Nashville’s The Harmaleighs, is a serious look at the ways we freeze up when life catches us in the spotlight.

Nashville indie duo The Harmaleighs (Haley Grant and Kaylee Jasperson) present Sorry, I’m Busy - a frantic, beat-driven track about Haley’s deeply personal journey through anxiety, depression and mania. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
