After initial success followed by a band break-up, rehab and a global pandemic, Caleb and Baylee, the duo behind All the Rest, decided that they still had music to write and couldn’t afford to call it quits just yet. With an album insight, Gentleman, the band’s second single this year showcases their ability to write unique and catchy indie-pop songs and is a real testament to their resilience. Gentleman is a fun-filled modern-day bop that sees the duo sing about assuring their lover that they’d “Never do bad to you” even “If I’m a little messed up.”  

When asked about their new formation and the decision to come back, Caleb and Baylee explain: “As for most, 2020 brought its fair share of challenges for us as both individuals and a band. Last summer we announced All The Rest would be on an indefinite hiatus. Covid alone may have been enough to kill off a lot of our pier’s bands, but for us, it went a little bit deeper than music. None of us were in a great place and there was a lot of internal resentment. Somewhere along the way, we let our passions undermine our personal relationships. Then life got crazy. From rehab and recovery to major breakups and family crises. It was a hell of a year but it was a time we desperately needed to focus on ourselves. Flash forward to 2021, all in a much better place, but still asking ourselves “Are we really done? Is that all we have to say?”. For some of us, sadly, it’s true, but All The Rest still has music to write and a story to tell. We’ve always poured our hearts into our music and we believe this new song is nothing short of that.”

“’Gentleman’ felt very left field for us at first. But we knew we needed something upbeat and not too serious. As soon as we wrote the hook line we all kind of looked at each other and went “yoooooo!”. The lyrics are definitely a little cocky but who cares. It’s fun to be cocky sometimes. “
