Sounds | Wild Rivers, Long Time

Je zou denken dat ze België willen veroveren. Iemand kleeft op deze muziek de 'indie' stempel terwijl ik hier gewoon héél erg mooie, melodieuze countrypop hoor. Een zachtjes kabbelend nummer met prachtige harmonies zoals ze het de laatste jaren precies enkel in Canada kunnen produceren.Met een erg knappe video erbovenop. Sidelines verschijnt op 4 february via Nettwerk Music Group / V2 Records Luister ook naar Weatherman


First single “Long Time” embodies the notion that emotions often come with a timeline of their own. The band shares, ‘This idea came out of getting an unexpected call from an ex-lover. Your conscious, mature brain might tell you that you’re over something, and then in a moment, you’re right back to the place you were before.

With over 200 million streams and a number of upcoming sold out shows, Toronto’s Wild Rivers has established a devoted following with their eloquent and introspective lyrics, genre-fluid melodies, glorious harmonies and captivating live performances. Now the indie trio is set to release their anticipated sophomore album Sidelines (Nettwerk) on February 4th. Sidelines finds the band sonically and lyrically expanding their sound, which imbues pop, rock, indie, and folk into each song’s blueprint. Co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon van Etten) and Wild Rivers, Sidelines was recorded in Connecticut, Los Angeles and Kingston, Ontario (where the band formed). Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein [guitar, vocals, keys], Devan Glover [vocals], and Andrew Oliver [lead guitar, synths].

Wild Rivers first caught audiences’ attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their acclaimed EPs, 2018’s Eighty-Eight and 2020’s Songs To Break Up To.
