An adrenalized, American Pop-Rock band from Lexington, Kentucky, Rags & Riches is the musical concept of brothers Tanner & Peyton Whitt. Having spent the last two years exploring their unique sound, identity, and aesthetic, the band is excited to be introducing their debut EP to fans. Arrival comes after their debut single “Speed of Sound” clocked over 650,000 Spotify streams in less than three months. A three song EP, Arrival establishes Rags & Riches as an upbeat, pop-rock, duo with a sound reminiscent of bands like Judah & The Lion and Imagine Dragons.
The title track, “Arrival”, serves as an unforgettable introduction to the EP with its optimistic lyrics and contemporary sound. Electronic synths fill the gaps between lyrics as the upbeat vibe instantly makes this track a nominee for ‘Best Summer Anthem’. The EP takes a turn with the second single, “X”, that emits a mysterious vibe with its minor chordal sounds. Showcasing the diversity of the duo, “X” is an excellent representation of their diverse sound. “War Cry” brings the trio of songs to a close with a classic indie-rock anthem displaying the vocal range of the brothers. Powerful, soaring vocals are the pièce de résistance of the final track in Arrival.
Listen to Arrival for yourself and get to know Rags & Riches on their first headlining tour this fall.
