“A catchy journey through denial, nostalgia, and acceptance, ‘I Do’ captures the heartrending ache of longing through charming harmonies and poignant, relatable lyricism.” — Atwood Magazine
Folk-pop foursome Wild Rivers join Nettwerk’s label roster and immediately dazzle with new single “I Do,” available everywhere August 9th. “I Do” showcases the band’s trademark male/female harmonies to convey the self-inflicted emotional rollercoaster following a breakup. They are in the midst of ongoing summer shows, including this weekend’s Edmonton Folk Festival. Tour dates are listed below.
Of the track, the band says: “‘I Do’ is about everything you tell yourself after a relationship ends. There’s a denial that happens, when you convince yourself and your friends that you’ve moved on. Over time, you can get to a place where you come to terms with the fact that you do still care and miss these things, and there’s a certain relief in that.”
Wild Rivers first caught attention with their 2016 self-titled debut, followed by their acclaimed 2018 EP Eighty-Eight, which received praise from the likes of Rolling Stone Country, Earmilk and No Depression, and saw the band surpass 73 million combined streams on Spotify. Having supported artists like The Paper Kites, Donavan Woods, Jake Bugg and Alvvays, Wild Rivers has built a dedicated live following thanks to their charismatic stage presence as evidenced by sold out headline shows across North America, including major cities like New York, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Toronto and more.
With exquisite harmonies, gorgeous melodies and emotionally charged, tightly crafted lyrics, the Toronto-based band deliver their unique blend of folk-pop songs that are at once inviting and infectious. Their sound is an amalgamation of their various influences, from contemporaries like The Lumineers, Bahamas and Kacey Musgraves to the iconic storytellers of the 70s, like James Taylor, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac.
