This review was originally published in April of 2018.
River Whyless always finds a space between Folk and Pop and drives a hook right down the middle. Born in the Right Country is a study in understanding privilege and what we have to fight for. Folk elements of acoustic bass and electric guitar weave together with a very interesting groove and a message about the lottery of destiny.
Most importantly, it also seems to touch on why we might need to prioritize peace above all else.
We remember River Whyless from our CHILL NEW vol 1 playlist.
River Whyless is excited to announce they will be releasing a new album, Kindness, A Rebel, on June 8, 2018 via Roll Call Records.
