Okkervil River played new single “Wake and Be Fine” on Jimmy Fallon last January. It’s now available as a free/legal mp3. If you liked what you heard from the live performance, than you’ll love it’s recorded form. It appears on Okkervil River’s upcoming album, I Am Far, which is due May 10th via Jagjaguawar.
“Wake and Be Fine” is a strong song that totally suites the bands style. Each listen improves upon the last, revealing the song in a new light. You will notice pop influenced layers that you didn’t notice at first. Keep it on repeat folks, it does the song well.
Will Sheff has mastered the craft of indie rock. This is my kind of music.
