Americana four piece River Whyless will release their new album Kindness, A Rebel in June.

Excellent new single Born In The Right Country is a political folk song, like a descendent of some of the great ’60s and early ’70s protest songs.

Frontman Ryan O’Keefe describes it thus, “Born In The Right Country speaks both through the eyes of our president and the narrator. In the song, vanity seems to trickle down much more freely than money and you can see it take root in the middle and lower classes as we strive to live like the upper. The dominant class is built on the idea that anyone can, and should become like them. We were raised to call this the American Dream. It’s imperative to the success of the upper class that the American Dream stays as it is, a dream. Sure, there are people that break through, in our country especially, but the rich generally stay rich and the poor generally stay poor.
