NEW LP TIRED HEARTS OUT NOW VIA FANTASY
BAILEN, siblings Daniel, David, and Julia BAILEN, have shared a stunning new, in-studio performance video for “Nothing Left To Give,” recorded live by GRAMMY-winning producer Chris Tabron at Clive Davis Studios in NYC. One of the gems off BAILEN’s acclaimed new album, Tired Hearts, this special take of “Nothing Left To Give,” spotlights the band’s unique gift for live performance including their otherworldly vocal ability and brilliant musicianship.
Under The Radar, who is hosting the video’s exclusive premiere, stated:
“Unlike the studio version, the band forgoes the plaintive piano intro and soulful keys, replacing them with addictive guitar licks and a mid-tempo rock groove. The results once again recall the warm tones and sharp live musicianship of Fleetwood Mac, while also infusing the confessional lyrics with a live-wire energy.”

Julia Bailen on “Nothing Left To Give”:
“Nothing Left to Give” sprung from that feeling of abandonment so crushing, you no longer care if everything goes wrong. It’s a mantra to help me crawl out of a depression hole¾so I can clean my room for the first time in a while, call a friend when I need to talk, or keep an overwhelming day in perspective even when it feels like you won’t survive it.”
The next leg of BAILEN’s Tired Hearts Club Tour kicks off August 19 at The Glade at Little Island in New York, continues September 8 at the Moab Music Festival in Moab, UT and includes major festival appearances at XPoNential Music Festival in Camden, NJ on September 23 and Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, TX on October 6 and 13 before they heading overseas for a series of shows in the UK beginning October 29 in Manchester, England. Tickets available HERE.
On Tired Hearts, Daniel, David, and Julia BAILEN deliver an alluring set of songs that navigates the space between the heart’s expectation and the head’s sober reality. Produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee) and BAILEN, and mixed by Lars Stalfors (Soccer Mommy, St. Vincent, Local Natives) Tired Hearts’ taut, synth-driven tracks are centered around BAILEN’s radiant harmonies and adventurous arrangements furthering the group’s exhilarating avant-pop evolution. At times both intricate and playful, measured and elaborate, the album’s 12 original songs wrestle with an uncertain future where ethics and morality—both communal and personal—are constantly shifting.
Earlier this year, the New York City based group shared the album’s first single – the alt-pop gem “Call It Like It Is,” along with its cult classic style video – listen and watch HERE. The sparkling track, co-written by BAILEN and X Ambassadors’ Adam Levin and Sam Harris, is “an anthem for anyone who refuses to be taken advantage of,” the band stated. “It unmasks the ugly truth behind shiny veneers.”
The album’s numerous high points also includes the iridescent pop of “Nothing Left to Give,” the tender hushed intimacy of “These Bones,” and the piercing, lilting title track “Tired Hearts.” The moving “BRCA (Nothing Takes Me Down),” a title derived from the breast cancer gene Julia shares with her mother (a breast cancer survivor) is indicative of the band’s incredible range. Over a slow building rhythmic pulse, Julia sings of hospital gowns and uncertainty, untying a complex knot of familial anxiety, guilt, and acceptance, while embracing the determination to move forward: I’ll still live like I’m dying/But I won’t let it take me down. “It’s about finding ways to not be defined by these circumstances, and to move past them with resilience,” she affirms.
Known for their stunning vocals and sharp, literate songwriting, BAILEN have cultivated a passionate following and emerged in indie circles via word of mouth, robust playlisting and a stream of steady touring with artists such as Hozier, Amos Lee, The Lone Bellow, and Joseph, to name a few. The group’s acclaimed 2019 debut, Thrilled To Be Here, produced by John Congleton, has amassed over 25 million streams since its release.
