Pop-infused indie rock quartet Monowhales have reimagined their hit single “RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down)” with an acoustic version available today. Stream “RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down) (Acoustic)” below.
“We produced the song ourselves in Toronto. We wanted to take the upbeat vibrancy of the original song and create a version of it influenced by the difficulties we’re all facing through the COVID-19 pandemic,” explains drummer Jordan Circosta. “Through this process, ‘RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down) (Acoustic)’ ended up showcasing a darker, more somber side of the original, with acoustic guitar, piano, organ, and sparse percussion creating the backdrop for the intimate vocal performance Sally recorded in her apartment while self-isolating.”
MONOWHALES are keeping busy during self-isolation with various fun and creative activities. The band recently encouraged fans to join them on Zoom and take part in the live quarantine edition of the original song, alongside members of The Elwins, Bedhead, and Fake Shark. Check out “RWLYD (Really Wanna Let You Down) [Live Quarantine Edition] ft. YOU” on YouTube.
Breaking a commercial radio record is a huge milestone for this formidable 3-piece who have been working diligently the past few years on their songwriting, live show, and building their fanbase. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their new record with JUNO-award nominated producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Brave Shores).
