River Whyless Premieres Video Full Of “Vivid Colors And Weird Visuals” Via NPR Music, At Newport Folk Fest This Weekend, Finding Triple A/Non-Comm Success
July 21, 2016 - River Whyless premiere their new video for “All Day All Night” via NPR Music today, who say the “vivid colors and weird visuals match River Whyless' delightful alt-folk sound.” The song is bright and driving, but also a little haunting, and the video uses the literal concept of day fading to night to convey the darker aspects of the song's glitter and gold. “All Day All Night” is from the Asheville, NC band’s new album We All The Light, out August 26th on Roll Call Records.

“All Day All Night” is taking off at radio as well. The single is getting support from over 25 Triple A/Non-Comm stations to date, including the nationally syndicated NPR program World Cafe, WFUV (NY, NY), XPN (Philadelphia, PA), KXT (Dallas, TX), WYEP (Pittsburgh, PA), KTBG (Kansas City, MO), WUMB (Boston, MA) and Open Air (Denver, CO). The track was recently named XPN’s “Gotta Hear Song of the Week,” and they say the song “simmers with passion buoyed by its hypnotic percussiveness.”
River Whyless will make their Newport Folk Festival debut this Sunday, where NPR Music says they are “guaranteed to share an amazing performance this year,” and Glide Magazine says the band will “no doubt leave with a whole new slew of fans.”
River Whyless’ current tour will also return them to the Americana Music Festival in Nashville in September, a full list of tour dates can be found here.
Produced by Justin Ringle of Horse Feathers, We All The Light is a stunning record that finds River Whyless fully utilizing the incredible sum of it's parts for the first time. All four members of the Asheville, NC-based band contributed to the creation of each of the album's eleven tracks, helping to tease out new sounds and sonic directions.
With three talented singers and songwriters, River Whyless consciously worked to blur the designation of a lead singer on We All The Light, deftly blending the three voices throughout the record. The trio’s vocals intertwine and layer together with gorgeous harmonies, rarely working alone. The vocal synergy is in many ways another instrument on We All The Light, adding additional colors and textures to the sonically adventurous mix.
