Transatlantic trio Raynes offer an ambivalent view of a relationship in “Second Thought”


Transatlantic trio Raynes earlier this year dropped their debut track Lemon Drop, an uplifting piece of classic Americana instrumentals with modern pop melodies that combined could easily put a smile on anyones face the second they hear the track. Now they’ve released their follow up single Second Thought, a more melancholy offering but still keeps their signature big instrumentals.

The lyrics of the track discuss scepticism and hesitance that can slowly over time destroy a relationship and deciding it’s time to deal with them and face the issues head on with the lyric, “I’d kill for a guarantee to make it easy to stay / And check the uncertainty or just take it away,” representing this perfectly. The vocals are solemn in their delivery effortlessly painting a picture of this troubled relationship with the bittersweet production of lush guitar melodies and measured beats adding to this ambivalent atmosphere further resulting in a fantastic piece of music.
