(Stunt Company) Coastal alt-pop queen Jack River (aka Holly Rankin) shares ethereal new single "Lie In The Sun," the latest taste from her forthcoming sophomore album Endless Summer - due out Friday June 16th, via Nettwerk Records.
"I wrote 'Lie In The Sun' with John Ryan, a hilarious New Yorker who I met at a writing camp in Byron. Over lunch, we were asking my publisher about her youth - what she got up to with friends in the suburbs, and what kind of slang they would use to describe going out and getting wasted with friends - she told us they'd say 'we're going to lie in the sun'. We were both fascinated and dreamt of a psych night scene, a fluorescent acid world of 70s youth. And so 'Lie in the Sun' was born." - Jack River
As Holly stated, she co-wrote "Lie In The Sun" with John Ryan whose credits include One Direction, Maroon 5, Dave Guetta and Harry Styles. The single was produced with Josh Fountain (BENEE, Alison Wonderland, Jarryd James) and paints the picture of an apocalyptic holiday, of blissfully floating in the sea while the sky is on fire around you. "Josh and I layered vocals upon vocals, reversed and twisted sounds, turned things upside down," Holly explains. "Within the production there is a story of obscuring what is real, so it doesn't feel as harsh anymore."
