We are happy to premiere the new single by Detroit's Reuther, 'Let Go'. The song is taken off the band's new 5-song EP by the band called 'Letting Go,' which is being released on January 1st, 2021 on Get Party Records. The new batch of songs are a reflection on the current state of life in the US, both intimate and broad. Singer/guitarist/lyricist Jim Vee has taken direct inspiration from the hardships that many are enduring since losing their jobs at the beginning of the 2020 pandemic and prior. Reuther wanted to encapsulate these ideals into their new songs, relying on the deprivational experiences that many can identify with in America, especially now. The content of the lyrics are personal and at the same time, completely relatable. Themes of hopelessness after losing a job, struggling with depression, and the yearning for a new start and a new understanding are what you can expect from this record. Many new themes were being explored for the band, but they’re always mixed with Pop Rock ferocity.
About the song:
"If you've ever lost a job, you can relate to the words in this song. The deep feelings of hopelessness and desperation. Trying for so long to get anywhere and getting nothing in return. Staring at your phone, waiting for a call - one part hopeful, one part distraught. During this last year, since millions of us have lost work, this is all too familiar, an experience we all feel. There isn't a single person who either has personally experienced this or have someone close to them dealing with it. We're in an uncertain time, each day growing more and more uncertain. It's scary to look around the corner, to see what's next. Let's hope this coming year gets a little easier for everyone"
Having spent years together touring the US with their former bands, founding members Jim Vee and Daniel Stover ultimately wanted to continue the excitement and energy that reckless touring and performing afforded them. Their vision is to allow their penchant for catchy, poppy and infectious songs guide them while obtaining inspiration from their favorite bands The Loved Ones, The Flatliners and The Swellers. This combination of pop sensibilities and powerful melodies have been building Reuther’s name since their inception in 2013. After a series of demos and singles, they released their first full-length LP “Like a Ghost” in early 2018. It is available on Digital and Vinyl via Get Party Records and Too Hype Music.
