Bringing pop melodies and that oh-so-famous country twang together in perfect harmony, Richlove drops their brand new single “Close Enough” and it’s sending us right back to the middle of June. Notorious for dropping tracks that embody summertime and warmth and sunshine, this up-and-coming five-piece pop-country band is at it again as we approach the cold.
On Friday the band dropped their brand new single which depicts a story of appreciating what’s right in front of you, instead of always looking for something more. Coming together earlier this year, lead singer Chloe Hendrickson wrote the single with fellow country musician, Dylan Brady.
We sat down with Chloe earlier this month for a little chat that wound up covering everything from ice cream flavors to amusement parks, from writing inspirations to touring, and traveling, and new music.
As far as ice cream flavors go, the country-pop singer says Richlove is actually most comparable to sherbet! “[…] because you get a little bit of everything and it tastes like summer.” It sure is fitting, when you consider their personalities and sound, which happens to just be what they naturally fell into: “We all really enjoy the writing in country, we all really like songs that have meaning behind them. [But] We’re all pop kids who love our pop.” So the two loves came together and created this magical force.
Stream “Close Enough” now!
Here at HQ, we’ve been jamming to Richlove nonstop and we’re kind of stoked about the idea of new music and tours from these guys. After a bout of touring and releasing four stand-alone singles, Richlove is determined to get back in the studio to focus purely on writing as much as they can. However, this doesn’t mean we’ll be getting an album or EP soon. “Not right now, unfortunately. We were thinking about it, but we want to focus on writing and creating a bunch of music first.” We’re bummed to hear it, but ready to see what becomes of them in the coming months and years!
Keep an eye out, they’re a fun bunch with a lot to give to the industry! And if you ask them what they want everyone to know about them? “We’re more than the music. It’s more than just writing and we want to meet people. We want to create connections with you.”
