Carter Reeves – Pay Day

It’s Friday and you know what that means – that’s right, it’s pay day baby! Time for the collective masses to cash those checks and fantasize over how to spend their hard earned money over the coming 72 hours. Maybe they’ll head downtown and hit the bars or hit the pier and get some game time in before catching those infamous West Coast waves, but either way, it’s the best possible outcome after a week of nose to the grindstone work. Work is obviously an essential part of life, especially if you love what you do like myself, but you’ve gotta go all in on things that make you feel happy and fulfilled during your free time too.

The carefree vibes on this new Carter Reeves’ new single absolutely nail the thrill of “making a buck or two” and the ever-relaxing kickbacks that ensue; from how I see it, “sand in my hair for the past four days” sounds like a dream come true. Reeves does a picture perfect job of delivering such a relatable story as you can hang on to every word and find an endless amount of ways to relate or simply throw it on in the background and mirror his experience in real time. While it’s totally different in sound and style, “Pay Day” is such an amazing follow up to “Fly High” that shows just how much versatility as an artist that Reeves has to offer. There’s no doubt I’m gonna try to hit the beach this weekend with “Pay Day” turned all the way up and good times in tow.
