Riley Pearce Releases ‘Misplaced’

Riley Pearce’s gorgeous and morose release, ‘Misplaced’ is now accompanied by a beautifully simple and genuine new video that has already had backing from Triple J ‘Unearthed’ – receiving over 35k views in 24 hours. This latest release follows on from a notable 2017 that saw Riley play his first international shows in London, and pick up a WAM ‘Song of the Year’ Award in Australia and had one of his songs feature in the US hit show ‘Shadowhunters.’ Quite a tipping point for the quietly masterful young Australian artist already making notable waves.

Speaking on the track Riley states I wrote Misplaced early on in a new relationship. I was really anxious and unsure of what I wanted and whether it was all going to work out. It’s pretty hard when two people like each other but are so different. It’s a brutally honest song… probably the most from I’ve written.

With his debut ‘Outside The Lines’ EP (released early 2016) amassing over 6 Million streams on Spotify, Riley built a substantial amount of anticipation for his new release –  ‘Misplaced’. A fragile, layered and complex melody balanced by Riley’s raw style, keeps the bar set at very high for an artist that should be on a lot of different radars this year. Watch here
