SUTHERLAND has released a brand new single entitled RAINMAKER. RAINMAKER is the first single and title track from their brand new EP coming in November 2018. Their previous single, Love Like That, was play-listed on commercial radio across South Africa and has spent a total of eleven weeks at #1 on the 5FM Indie Top 10@10 Chart. To date it still holds the #1 spot.
RAINMAKER was written a few months ago, inspired by a feeling of contentment and the start of a new chapter in the lives of each band member; the metaphor is the idea of fulfilling a ritual (music) to cause renewal or change, much like the effect of rain in spring:
“The song is about finding a new love for someone or something; a love so strong that it gives you a new lease on life and helps you realise that you’re happy right where you are.”
The single is a very light, bright, groovy and happy-sounding track with feel good lyrics. It features signature SUTHERLAND elements such as acoustic guitar, unique textures, interesting, upbeat drum lines and Misty’s voice, which ties the sound of the offering together.
“We believe anyone will be able to identify with this song. It’s fun and happy, and written with an emphasis on dancing like no one is watching. Lyrically speaking, it’s a song that anyone will be able to relate to.”
As with the upcoming EP, fans can expect another refreshing, honest and genuine take on SUTHERLAND from the single.
