Chat with R,ILY

So last week I had the opportunity to catch up with R,ILY front man Rob Lindgren and chat about their recent album release, We Chose To Go To The Moon.

If you haven’t listened to this album you’re missing out on a pretty unique experience. In just the first few tracks it’s obvious how much Rob Lindgren and Jason Reynolds have grown together as a band on this album. Lindgren commented, “Jason and I really considered this album our chance to expand on and more fully realize the whole indie rock/dance beats concept of our first EP, Noise. Pop. Deathray. We widened our range to include more ideas from across the pop spectrum” From the Interpol inspired guitar harmonies in “Anxious Smiles” to the manipulated vocal samples and drum polyrhythms influenced by Aphex Twin in “I Won’t Be Still” and “There Is A Light”, R,ILY has created some serious new sounds to be reckoned with.

Last week R,ILY made a radio appearance on Delaware Valley’s Hometown Heroes 93.7 WSTW, and is continuing to get airplay in other areas. Lindgren commented, “We are getting airplay all over the country right now, and sometimes in the strangest places...Nebraska, Colorado, Oklahoma, Illinois, Wisconsin. It's just weird to think, for the first time, that my voice is coming out of someone's radio in places that I've never been, and I might not be anytime soon. Or ever. I don't have any plans to visit Wisconsin at the moment, Haha”. If you’re bummed about missing the Hometown Heroes appearance, the guys will be on a New Music Inferno podcast next week. We’ll supply the link, don’t worry.

R,ILY will also be at the Wilmington World Café Live in Delaware on October 7 if you want to get the full live music experience (I recommend it!). Buy tickets HERE.
