Wild Rivers have released their new single “Better When We’re Falling Apart” off of their forthcoming album Sidelines out February 4. Listen to the track here.
“Better When We’re Falling Apart” is a poignant ode to a toxic relationship, which focuses on a couple who are always on the verge of a dramatic breakup. The song’s introspective lyrics and melodies also reflect the band’s journey, as they continue to navigate new experiences and adapt to adulthood.
The single was co-produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Sharon Van Etten) with Wild Rivers, and recorded in Connecticut, Los Angeles, and Kingston, Ontario (where the band formed). It’s a record in which Wild Rivers draw upon a spectrum of sounds, imbuing pop, rock, indie, and folk into each song’s blueprint.
The band commented, “When you’re on the sidelines, you’re watching life go by, and maybe wishing you were wanting to play a different role. There’s a sense of detachment from the experience, which makes it challenging to be present in the moment. On the other hand, only time and space can offer a renewed context that’s otherwise difficult to see while you’re caught up in it. And we’ve literally been sidelined for a year to take it all in. In these songs, we’re making sense of it.”
