We recently checked the stunning new single from Rutherford Royal “Back Burner”
Nashville based multi-instrumental , producer and singer/songwriter Rutherford Royal delivers an absolute gem in “Back Burner”
We were captive by “Back Burner” because Rutherford Royal was able infuse so many styles into one song . We heard Americana influenced guitars , dark pop hooks and tantalizing bass lines that gave “Back Burner “ an intoxicating southern goth feel.
On the single, Rutherford Royal confides, “The boy has been waiting for the girl to fall in love with him as he watches her burn through several brief, meaningless and destructive relationships. Despite clear signs that he should move on, he is determined to die on this hill. Often it feels like the right thing to do is take the side of love and wait for the one you know you’ll never get over. This can be the single most destructive decision you ever make, but half measures will only lead to a life of ‘what-ifs.”
Like catfish being caught on a steamy lake we are hooked on Rutherford Royal and his absolutely one of a kind sound .
