Kyle Pacey manages to pack musing on mankind’s decline, the death and end of the world we all love, and the optimism we should all consider sharing into catchy, pop-infused rock tunes that are layered in jazz notes, R&B bounce, and funk aesthetics from start to finish.
It’s all been captured clearly, horns and all, on Road Songs, Pacey’s latest 2023 EP release, where anyone ready can take a trip through the “sad days, mad days, and bad days” in our world that used to contain so much more hope that we currently have now. But the sounds of catchy, warm horns and driving, bluesy riffs can take you far away from wherever you are, with -infectious melodies and Kyle’s soulfulvoice planted firmly at the center, making it easier to see what’s possible, and how much better we can make this world.

Regardless of where you start, Pacey’s tunes are a warm reminder of everything that we all hold close, but his latest release, a double-A side single, really helps highlight his unique sound while shining a spotlight on deep themes that permeate across much of his sound and lyrics.
While ‘Sad Days’ brings us all through a song of hopelessness and an end to our world that seems eerily close and within reach, there’s also such a strong sense of togetherness, even if it is “the end for me and you” because it’s something we all share and feel. And in that, hope can be born.
‘Once Again’, the next single from the release, shines a light somehow even brighter on the end, while also focusing on the moments left, in a bouncy and vibrant chorus that continues on and on, even if it’s partially about how we all might not soon enough, as Pacey invites everyone listening to seize the day with him.
The release is a well lit path to Pacey’s inspired sound and the way he sees this world, a place he doesn’t just believe can be better; he can feel it, and you will too, as ‘Sad Days’ and ‘Once Again’ both paint a striking portrait of a world in ruin that can still be saved, while still reminding everyone that we can all have a good time together during the end of the world, if we stick together and try to make it all right.
Kyle Pacey is bringing a unique and smooth blend of rock, pop, melancholy, and blues to you. Give his tunes a listen to see why you need to make a live show after picking up his latest double-A side single release, containing ‘Sad Days’ and ‘Once Again.”
