Half Hadley – “Rivington”


“Rivington” is an anthemic rocker from Half Hadley, released today. The NYC-based act formed in October 2018, and features Scott Rainaud (Lead Vocals), Benji Arnold (Guitar, Vocals), Troy Johnson (Guitar), Forrest Klawunn (Bass) and Winston Vargo (Drums). They draw influences from a variety of rock-based styles, including alternative rock, metalcore, psychedelic rock, punk rock, pop punk, classic rock, post-grunge, and emo.

The track centers around a soaring chorus, with fluid guitar riffs coexisting with driving distortion. “This city will swallow you,” declares Half Hadley during this section, per the band “an ode to the backdrop and circumstances that brought together five strangers,” — while also celebrating victory along the way. “Rivington” is a fun rock track from Half Hadley.

“Rivington” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2019’ Spotify playlist.
