Remy Reilly has today released her new single titled ‘What Do Ya Know’. Happy hook filled pop with a fusion of lush instrumentation that explodes into an unexpected chorus.
‘What Do Ya Know’ is a song that you leave not expecting what you just heard. Decadently deep and delicately decadent with a mix of pop and accessibility to make the medicine go down a bit smoother. Don’t let that fool you, though. This is a song that will last long after the next and next singles and whatever hit the ‘spotiverse’.
About ‘What Do Ya Know’
“What Do Ya Know” is a joyful celebration of new love and diving in head first. Committed to seeing the good in others, Remy Reilly decides to keep her heart open and fall in love, no matter what happens in previous relationships. Produced by fellow Dallas native Jonathan Tyler, the song creates an infectious euphoria, overflowing from the breezy, carefree pop-rock rhythmicalities to Reilly’s distinctive gentle soul rasp that she’s known for. Beneath the upbeat, lively exterior made to dance along to, “What Do Ya Know” reflects a newfound wisdom, one as blissfully open to possibilities as a happy ending in a film.
Instead of beating herself up for disappointments caused by other people, in “What Do Ya Know,” Remy Reilly reminds herself of the power of authenticity and staying true to yourself after experiencing heartbreak. “I was annoyed that I still saw the good in people after they had done bad things, but then I realized it was a wonderful property to have,” she comments. “There are going to be bad people in your life, but you choose whether you change it and take it as a lesson. I never wanted to change my personality or light way of looking at people just because one person wasn’t kind to me.”
The Texas-based indie-pop artist is constantly evolving in her sound, blending a plethora of musical influences with her poignant, vivid songwriting and soulful vocals. Pushing herself beyond the boundaries of genres, Remy Reilly’s distinctive sound is refreshing and innovative, made unique also by her commitment to authenticity. “What Do Ya Know” marks Reilly’s first single since her 2022 EP Avalanche. Touching on topics like self-love and female empowerment, and drawing from her and her friends’ experiences, Remy Reilly reflects on the trials and tribulations of teenagerhood with innate curiosity and authenticity. She has established herself as an emerging voice in the Dallas music scene, opened for several big-name acts, has been nominated for four Dallas Observer Awards, winning Best New Act, and has received praise from champions such as the Dallas Observer, Music Connection Magazine, Elicit Magazine, and Prelude Press.
