Following the recent release of her critically-acclaimed new single “Drag You Down” from her highly-anticipated forthcoming album, singer/songwriter Aubrie Sellers shares an acoustic live performance of the track. Directed by Chloé Aktas and captured in one take, the video features Aubrie accompanied solely by her guitar atop a convertible at sunset, offering a serene departure from the brazen, gritty aesthetic of the recorded version. The video is the first in a series of acoustic performances that will accompany the album, and Aubrie reveals that they’re “meant to feel like little snapshots of life, or little movie scenes pulled for a bigger picture. We tried to keep them as raw and real as possible, with life still going on in the background.” People exclaims, “the stripped-down track showcases the songstress’ powerful vocals.”

“Drag You Down” was released via Soundly Music to rave reviews, with Rolling Stone declaring it a “first sizzling taste of the long-awaited follow-up to her 2016 debut,” Billboard pronouncing it a “rollicking jam that will soar in the live setting,” and Nashville Scene highlighting it as a “fresh track.” The Boot asserts “the song injects some garage rock power behind Sellers’ trademark country twang and soaring vocals,” and Sounds Like Nashville proclaims the single “a femme-fatale anthem filled with swagger – and more than a little bit of aggression.” In its first week following release, “Drag You Down” has been featured on Apple Music’s “Breaking Country” and “Best of the Week Pop” playlists, Amazon’s “Fresh Folk & Americana” playlist, and Spotify’s “New Music Nashville” playlist.

Since the release of her 2016 debut album New City Blues, Aubrie has quickly become an artist to watch by outlets including Rolling Stone, Billboard, ELLE, NYLON, Cosmopolitan, SpotifyPandora, and CMT’s Next Women of Country. Aubrie effortlessly transcends genre with the directness of her lyrics and swaggering confidence, creating a compelling picture of an artist paving her own path and coming into her own.
