Every other week, Anthony Kozlowski pens the Atwood Magazine column Tunes & Tumblers, pairing new and classic albums with cocktail recipes. He quickly found however that drinking alone is a sad business. So he invited his friends into a recording booth to aid in mixing delicious drinks and to discuss the music that they all love. Strap on your headphones and enjoy a cold one on us.
Overnight sonic extraordinaire Stacey Ryan joins us in the studio this week to sip on something that’s sweet as love and sour as heartbreak as we talk TikTok, situationships, and her newest single, “Over Tonight.”
words by Lilly Eason
We’re back, back, back again baby!
And what a way to start 2023, than sitting down with Quebec’s own Stacey Ryan. Since well before her meteoric TikTok virality, Ryan’s sticky-sweet soul pop has told tales of unaligned love. Tonight at the bar, Ryan and the regulars sip on a sweet and sour concoction imbued with her newest single, “Over Tonight,” now streaming. Spoiler alert for: Tales of tricky situationships, green onion obsessions, and trigger warning for: Mention of Shia Labeouf.
