Indie pop duo All The Rest are back with a new playful track titled “Gentleman.” It’s unapologetically cocky but in all the feel-good ways. If you don’t know, All The Rest announced an indefinite hiatus last year. But fortunately, the duo decided to continue songsmithing together and this time they’re back with a sassy piece that brings back the All The Rest vibe. “’Gentleman’ felt very left field for us at first. But we knew we needed something up beat and not too serious. As soon as we wrote the hook line we all kind of looked at each other and went ‘yoooooo!’ The lyrics are definitely a little cocky but who cares. It’s fun to be cocky sometimes,” shared All The Rest.

On their decision to come back, frontmen/singers Caleb Smith and Baylee Walle explained: “As for most, 2020 brought it’s fair share of challenges for us as both individuals and a band. Last summer we announced All The Rest would be on an indefinite hiatus. Covid alone may have been enough to kill off a lot of our pier’s bands, but for us it went a little bit deeper than music. None of us were in a great place and there was a lot of internal resentment. Somewhere along the way we let our passions undermine our personal relationships. Then life got crazy. From rehab and recovery, to major breakups and family crises. It was a hell of a year but it was a time we desperately needed to focus on ourselves. Flash forward to 2021, all in a much better place, but still asking ourselves ‘Are we really done? Is that all we have to say?’ For some of us, sadly, its true, but All The Rest still has music to write and a story to tell. We’ve always poured our hearts into our music and we believe this new song is nothing short of that.”
The track is from their upcoming self-titled EP, which they’ll be sharing more details soon.
