Raynes releases a heartfelt alternative tune, entitled, “Second Thought”

Raynes is a transatlantic trio made up of two Americans and a Brit. Not too long ago, they released a heartfelt alternative tune, entitled, “Second Thought”.

“‘Second Thought’ is about the dissatisfaction, hesitation, and ambivalence that can slowly destroy a relationship. It’s literally about having second thoughts and trying to deal with them. Should they be ignored and repressed, or confronted and worked through? Or is it too late to even try and save it?” – Raynes

‘Second Thought’ follows on the heels of Raynes’ debut single, entitled, “Lemon Drop”.

The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses lush instrumentation scented with an alternative-pop aroma.

Raynes consists of LA-based Mat Charley and Joe Berger (both from North Dakota), and U.K. native Mark Race. The trio met via Instagram after an extensive search for the final piece of this project.

Their sound has been compared to the arena-filling choruses of Coldplay and the Americana instrumentation of Mumford and Sons. Also, the harmonic complexity of the Beach Boys.

The band labeled their sound—“expensive folk”—folk instrumentation which incorporates very obvious elements of pop production, ultimately creating a slicker and shinier sound than straight-down-the-middle folk.
