Get to Know: Hey, River!

It took me a bit longer this year but I finally found my feel good song of the summer. I found it late one night on the internet, gave it a listen and thought “Oi, this is catchy…” A few minutes later I found myself going back to it and within an hour I was totally hooked and listening repeatedly.

Run Boy is the first single from South African band, Hey, River!  This indie pop band consists of Frans Van Wyk, vocals/rhythm guitar, Johan Cornje-Lead guitar, Henk Labuschagne bass/vocals, and James Robb on the drums. They have a retro sound that still manages to be up to date and fresh.

Stealing words out of my blog partners mouth–They sound a bit Two Door Cinema Club meets Passion Pit. I think they just sound fab, with all their ” Gots ” at the very first of the song and the CRAYZEE way he pronounces crazy. They are busy recording  their album ” A Dinner and A Show for Those I Have Lied To” and it should be released sometime in 2014.

Lets hope that while we wait for 2014 and the album to come out, Hey River! will release a few more tunes to make the wait bearable.
