Gimme My Soul” is the emotive new single from River Boy (solo project of Narayana Johnson from Willow Beats). It follows on from his releases earlier this year “Before I Forget” and “I Never Knew”, both garnering 4-star reviews from triple j.


River Boy commenting on his new single, “Gimme My Soul” begins with lyrics about losing touch over your agency in life, feeling like you’re being carried along without making any meaningful decisions of your own. It’s asking the question “When did I stop believing in myself and can I ever get that belief back? The chorus is an affirmation though. It’s demanding that agency back “Gimme my soul, gimme my spirit and bone”. The song is ultimately about re-finding inspiration, purpose and self-love. The cheesy midi flutes introduced in the final chorus are nostalgic for me and inspired by the Super Nintendo game, Donkey Kong Country. They’re introduced as a throwback to a time when the world was full of potential and magic. It’s a reminder to bring a childish curiosity and wonder into adulthood.”


Gimme My Soul” fuses the watery elements of his work as one half of Willow Beats and his eclectic music taste which draws inspiration from his childhood growing up in the mountains in the Northern Rivers of NSW.


Willow Beats saw songs achieving millions of plays on streaming platforms along with multiple full rotation adds to Triple J. The duo had sell-out tours across Australia along with playing Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Beyond the Valley, Clockenflap (Hong Kong) and supporting artist such as Tash Sultana. 


River Boy is currently working on new solo material as well as composing for video games.


“Gimme My Soul” is out Friday June 26th via Ditto Music.
