Florida psych-folk outfit, Someday River, turned a lot of heads with the release of their critically-acclaimed EP, Sleeping Sideways, in 2016. They cemented their reputation last fall with the debut of “Over The Weather”, and today, with the premiere of “That Thing”, the second single from their upcoming debut full-length, the band has taken yet another tremendous leap forward creatively. “That Thing” is a smooth, ethereal piece of indie rock that soothes the soul with its carefully orchestrated horns and dragging percussion that serves as the sonic equivalent of a southern drawl. The perfect companion for enjoying a sunset beer on the back porch, “That Thing” brings an early hint of Spring healing to this arctic February while tackling some serious subject matter (highlighted below). You can stream it now on Soundcloud or Spotify.
From Greyson Charnock:
“I’m not always the best communicator, be it with friends, family, or even myself. Sometimes writing songs can help me communicate; it is a mostly freeform process; the underlying themes and meaning of a song will often come to light in a retrospective way.
This song is about seeing someone you love continuously fall into a cycle of addiction, and the feeling of helplessness that goes along with that. For me, “That Thing” produces a space for healing; I hope it can create that same sense for other people.”
