Perth-based alt-folk artist Riley Pearce delivers new single "Bottle It Up," with a sizzling guest vocal performance from Greta Stanley. The two have also announced a co-headlining Australian tour, starting August 21st in Sydney and ending September 4th in Busselton.
Riley’s honest and approachable style of songwriting has resonated both in Australia and overseas, with more than 60 million streams to date. He often writes about his love-hate relationship with nostalgia, expanding on the ever-present human need for connection with equal parts introspection and appreciation for life and companionship. After a long lockdown in Melbourne, Riley moved back to his hometown of Perth with his long-term girlfriend and their new puppy. His latest EP "Love and All That Stuff" moves in a new direction for Riley, as he steps out of his comfort zone to showcase a different style — with an endearing collection of love songs. "Bottle It Up" captures the joy and effortlessness of early attraction with alternating lead vocals from Greta Stanley, a bouncy acoustic guitar, and a lyrical theme that puts trust and communication at the center of a burgeoning romance. Each detail resonates with heart-happy determinism as we rejoice in the arbitrary perfection of every little thing.
