If you thought love was intoxicating before, you’ll get a real kick out of this: With his heart fully on his sleeve, Jordan Tyler’s passion-fueled debut single “Hungover” is an honest expression of unrequited love and aching desire with a spirited pop bounce.

i don’t remember last night
hiding away from sunlight
i don’t even wanna look at my phone
remind myself of how i got so alone
you’re not thinking the same way about me
there’s no wrinkles on my sheets where you should be
sometimes i drink just for fun, sometimes i drink to forget
but you’re the one thing, one thing that i can’t
Listen: “Hungover” – Jordan Tyler

Atwood Magazine is proud to be premiering “Hungover,” the official debut single from Los Angeles-based Jordan Tyler. Sporting a penchant for penning “infectious music” and with his sights set in the skies, Tyler couldn’t ask for a better introduction: “Hungover” is as playful as it is heartbroken, a weary but emphatically sincere song that gets stuck in your head on the first listen.

Hungover – Jordan Tyler

is this a heartache or is this a headache?
i’m so hungover and it’s all because of you
laying in my bed just wishing i was dead
am i hungover or just hung up over you?
it hurts to open my eyes
i’m wearing my ray bans inside
i’m just trying to go about my day
uh, i always look tired anyway

A light bass bops along as Tyler sings his pains and woes. It’s easy to draw comparisons between this song and lilting dance-pop we’ve received from Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen in recent years. At the same time, the light guitars jumping around the song’s foreground are reminiscent of the “indie pop” sounds of The 1975.

This is all to say that, sonically speaking, Jordan Tyler is in good company.

i can’t even get you in the same room
to tell you how badly i need you
ooh, even if my house is spinning
i don’t care, as long as you’re in it
is this a heartache or is this a headache?
i’m so hungover and it’s all because of you
laying in my bed just wishing i was dead
am i hungover or just hung up over you?

Lyrically, Tyler’s wit and poetic tilt drive him to great heights. He ought to continue making the most of clever wordplay, whether he leans into serious or comedic territory; likewise, the songwriter’s honesty creates a song of overwhelming sincerity and warmth. It’s hard not to root for him when he’s delivering music this enchanting.

i’m so hungover and it’s all because of you
