This Week’s New River Music

Title: Overexcited
Artist: Guster
Album: Look Alive
Released: 2019
This new single is off of Guster’s upcoming album, Look Alive, to be released on Friday, January 18th. The song won’t be available online until Jan 11th. The song gives off 80’s techno vibes, unlike the usual stuff we’re used to from the band. It’s upbeat, fun and we think it’s a great new add for the new year!
They’re playing at the House of Blues Boston on Saturday, January 19th, with local opener Tall Heights.

Title: 99
Artist: Barns Courtney
Album: 99 – Single
Released: 2018
“99” is Barns Courtney’s first piece of new music since his debut album in 2015. This uplifting new indie anthem is a throwback to the glory days of the late nineties.

Speaking of the track, Barns comments; “This is the first song where I’ve ever been able to inject my true personality. I was born in England and grew up in suburban Seattle playing video games and watching Pokémon. 99 has got genuine sadness, but it’s got playfulness, and it references the nerdy parts of my personality where I’m in Seattle in the late 90s with my friends in front of a TV screen playing Nintendo 64. It’s got the silly playfulness where I reel off a list of dated games consoles at the end. That sense of poking fun at yourself. The universal goal is that to be successful is to have shiny status symbols, so there are people who’ve grown up and got the house and the Ferrari, but here I am clutching my old Sega Megadrive.”
