This Week’s New River Music

Title: Joy
Artist: Bastille
Album: Joy – Single
Released: 2019
This new single will be on their upcoming album, Doom Days, set to release on June 14th. The overarching theme of the album, as you could’ve guessed, is the idea of an apocalyptic party. Lead singer Dan Smith explains the track – “Joy is the moment at the end, almost that moment of redemption when you wake up on the kitchen floor and all the anxieties come flooding in. Something as simple as a call or message from somebody can you bring back at that moment…make you feel ridiculous for the state you were in”. The band also experiments with gospel choirs for the first time on this track, and they consider it a “relatively happy song, the first in ALL the albums which is vaguely positive”! They’ll be at Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion on September 17th – which is the second stop on their Doom Days Tour Part 1.

Title: Heart
Artist: Rainbow Kitten Surprise
Album: Mary (b-side)
Released: 2019
This is a song the band wrote years ago and have performed live many times, but never put it on any albums or EP’s before now. The day the song was released, the band made this statement: “Written before many of the songs you now know by RKS, these tracks never made it on our original EP’s Mary or Seven for various reasons, but today is the day. May we present: Mary (B-sides)”. The other song on the EP is called No Vacancy. The band is playing Boston Calling on Sunday, May 26th!

Title: You And I
Artist: Barns Courtney
Album: You And I – Single
Released: 2019
This English singer/songwriter has released his follow up single to 99. The song is upbeat and will end up being a song of the summer – mark our words! He’s coming our way to the Paradise Rock Club on September 10th!
