With their new album, Kindness, A Rebel, set to be released on June 8, 2018, Indie Folk band River Whyless recently released their socially charged single off the album, “Born in the Right Country”.
Drums and guitar build up the opening as O’keefe sings and electric guitar enters. As the chorus sets in, the drums and guitar hit a consistent stride, while O’Keefe harmonizes with band member Halli Anderson, their voices a perfect contrast to each other.
Known as a group with multiple, talented songwriters, their latest single was written by band member Ryan O’Keefe, who says that, “at its core ‘Born in the Right Country’ is about innate luck. Cosmic luck, that of an individual, born into a country or society which accepts them as that unique individual…We were raised to call this the American Dream. It’s imperative to the success of the upper class that the American Dream stays as it is, a dream.”
