Listen: Reigning Sound’s breezy new song “Never Coming Home”


    Our first glimpse of Reigning Sound’s forthcoming album, Shattered, came in the form of “Falling Rain”, a punchy, alt-country gem featuring an organ line that recalled The Band’s Garth Hudoson. With their latest single “Never Coming Home”, the Memphis-based band ditches the organ but keeps the twang, while also adding summery strings and scratchy folk inspiration. Listen in below (via Noisey).

    Shattered is out July 15th via Merge Records.

    Shattered Tracklist:
    01. North Cackalacky Girl
    02. Never Coming Home
