Following the success of their 2018 EP, Eighty-Eight, which received praise from the likes of
Rolling Stone Country, PopMatters, Earmilk, and No Depression, Wild Rivers is set to release “I
Do” on August 9, 2019 an immediately anthemic track that showcases the band’s trademark
male/female harmonies to convey the self-inflicted emotional rollercoaster following a breakup.
“I Do” is about everything you tell yourself after a relationship ends. There’s a denial that
happens when you convince yourself and your friends that you’ve moved on,” the band
explains. “Over time, you can get to a place where you come to terms with the fact that you do
still care and miss these things, and there’s a certain relief in that.”
Wild Rivers is Khalid Yassein (vocals, guitar), Devan Glover (vocals), Andrew Oliver (guitar, bass) and Julien Laferriere (drums).
