Okkervil River – Don’t Move Back To LA

Okkervil River’s new record is called In The Rainbow Rain, and is released on the 27th April.

Described as a buoyant and playful record spattered with starbursts of electric guitar, big blooms of synth, and a chorus of backing vocals, the first taste is Don’t Move Back To LA, the light-hearted midpoint of the album. Bandleader Will Sheff says the song “had a very straightforward impulse behind it: a bunch of my best friends all moved to LA and I was really sad about it so I wrote a song about how I didn’t want them to leave…I think the song is also kind of about my own deep and long-held desire to get the hell out of New York City.
