Kyle Craft “Exile Rag” – Listen

The country-tinged “Exile Rag” is the delightful new single from Kyle Craft’s “Full Circle Nightmare”, his forthcoming second album available on 2nd February worldwide on Sub Pop.   While working on a farm in Northern California, Craft coined the term “Exile Rag” for the little tunes he’d pick out on the guitar while everyone slept. Back in Portland, he developed feelings for a woman that in the end weren’t reciprocated. He’d sit alone in the farm’s workroom, dreaming of his life back in the city and asking himself, “What if?” When he belts out the line “By the time that her doors closing, and you feel like you’re imposing on that brand new boyfriend she has, she’ll be rolling in new love and you’ll be singing on the Exile Rag,” the song’s feeling of unrequited love is captured perfectly.
