Liverpool's So, Reverie revitalise post-punk with new single 'Sentimentality'

  • 2 min read

Liverpool's music scene has always had a knack for producing bands that challenge traditional sounds, and So, Reverie is the latest act to carry that torch. Born from the ashes of their previous project, Avalyn, So, Reverie's Andy Power and Cain Garcia are injecting fresh energy into the post-punk landscape.

Building on the initial success of debut single 'Decaying', the band's latest single is the sign of a band well on its way to carving out a dedicated following. Titled 'Sentimentality', the song arrives as a perfect introduction to the washed, dream-pop duo, and perfectly ignited their first-ever sold-out headline show in Liverpool at the Kazimier Stockroom.

Throughout the song, Power's songwriting draws inspiration from indie rock icons like The Smiths and Echo & The Bunnymen, while Garcia adds another dimension with his love for Bill-Ryder Jones, The Strokes, and Iceage. The result is a post-punk concoction that isn't afraid to embrace a hint of pop, channelling a new wave of post-punk and new wave brilliance that is sure to leave you entranced.

Speaking about the new single, the band shared, "'Sentimentality' is an extremely personal song to me that is very close to my heart. I instrumentally wanted to create a melancholic and upbeat song with the guitars which inspired me to write the lyrics in the way in which I did. It’s a sad song which I guess you could say is about the realisation that you have suddenly lost someone you loved. The song was very floaty and melancholic until Cain wrote the drum beat you hear on the song which really gives it that upbeat feel it needed giving it that depth which took the song to a whole other level.”

While the band's debut single proved their potential, racking up thousands of streams and garnering them coveted airtime on BBC Introducing in Merseyside, it's this new single that has really put So, Reverie on the map. As the band said, "We believe it’s one of the best songs we’ve written so far and with the relatable heartfelt lyrics it will hopefully resonate with a lot of people."
