The Band of Rivals Throwback to the Future with Two New Songs

Philly’s The Band of Rivals has been working on new music, recently premiering a pair of new songs for Throwback Thursday Philly.

Throwback Thursday Philly is an online publication started by music writer Caitlin Phillips which, in addition to “chronicling the city’s unique connections to the music industry,” highlights current artists by giving them a platform for interviews and new music.

The Band of Rivals played a pair of Den Sessions of new songs: “Her,” a low-key, groovy lament of days gone by, and “The Devil and Daniel Johnston,” an up-tempo foot-stomper that recalls the best of vintage country and folk. Both songs feature the five-piece at their tightest, with Sean Cos’s soulful baritone and Abbey Mertz’ versatile violin leading the charge on both tunes.

We’ve included the video for the latter below. For the full Throwback Thursday Philly piece, follow the link.
