Kingston band Willy Nilly dropped their newest single today, ‘Misbehave’ – a heady rock song about questioning the norm and fighting back against it.
“We initially planned to release it on a later EP but I felt the themes present in it were somewhat relevant to the protests and movement gripping the world,” explains singer Owen Fullerton. So the band pushed its release forward and will donate all BandCamp sales of the single to BLM and NAACP.
Fullerton added that ‘Misbehave’ is a lot more up tempo and heavier than their normal sound, which he admits makes it more challenging to sing but he’s happy with how it turned out. The group promises another new single “that sounds nothing like this” in two weeks time.
Willy Nilly – who made their debut show as a band almost exactly one year ago today at the Mansion – compare themselves to and draw inspiration from artists like Dr. Dog, Frightened Rabbit, Gang of Youths, Dan Mangan and Father John Misty.
