Zimbabwean-born alternative artist So Kindly returns with his latest offering, ‘The River’. A beautifully written track, ‘The River’ shows off So Kindly’s deep, raspy vocals, impeccable songwriting and heartfelt lyricism over a simple, guitar-led, minimalistic beat.
As his first release of the new year, ‘The River’ marks So Kindly’s return to music following a brief, two year hiatus after the release of his EP Nothing to Noise. Looking to 2021 with a positive energy and focused drive, the year is sure to be a great one for the budding singer-songwriter who plans to hit stages once again with an all-new storming set of soul-stirring songs.
Speaking on the message behind his latest drop, So Kindly shares:
“The River deals with the painful yet beautiful reality of being a human. Sometimes we find ourselves at a fork in the road of our lives. That moment comes with hard emotional decisions that need to be made. This track is about that decision-making process internally and emotionally. Sometimes we have to cut ourselves some slack and accept that we are not always in control of the way things pan out.“
An expert blend of So Kindly’s empowered attitude, bold lyricism, and stunning vocals, ‘The River’ perfectly encapsulates his newfound sound that sits comfortably between electronic-influenced dance music and indie-folk.
