In the midst of the Nashville music scene, Evan Castle and his band The Southern Tier release their fourth single, River. This single, along with the others released previously, are being pulled from a body of work that he and guitarist Tim Kelly, and producer and engineer Jordan Sloat created in summer 2018. Following the success of Evan’s previous offering, Drunk As Hell, River sets a grittier tone.
River is all about what it means to leave home and the issues that surround that. The new track talks about identity through religion and community and how these two different things can impact certain decisions. It's an interesting take on this subject and something that the track does very well.
River is being released as a means to explore more of the sound the group has developed. River flows with gushing guitar and cruising drum work, reminiscent of an early Killers record. The track is sat between traditional indie-rock and the roots of Evan’s Nashvillian surroundings, embracing Country elements whilst retaining a broader appeal.
