Rich Hil - Can’t Stay Away

Posted 5 years ago
Producer:
Delivery Boy
Album:
Ricky Goes to Rehab

This past April, we were introduced to Rich Hil, a Connecticut native with chronic girl troubles and a hazy sound reminiscent of one Won’t You Tell Me). Six months later, the artist’s romantic woes haven’t abated, but his aural palette has undergone a bit of a shift; new single Can’t Stay Away stands smack-dab in the middle of the increasingly blurry line between pop and alt-rock, with producer Delivery Boy‘s reverb-drenched electric-guitar crunch and pensive keyboard chords brushing up against a handclap-heavy percussion rhythm. Hil turns in a nakedly emotional vocal performance, switching between hoarse flows and heartbroken melodies as he begs a beautiful girl named Evelyn not to walk out of his life. Will she heed Rich’s words and return so he can “rock [her] zeppelin” (yes, that’s a line in the song – and no, I’m not sure what precisely that entails) once again? Only one way to find out; by copping the artist’s new, Don Cannon-presented Ricky Goes to Rehab street album, available now online.
