Rain City Drive Offers Second Preview To Deluxe Self-Titled Album

Rain City Drive Spring 2023

Following the release of their re-imagined “Blood Runs Cold” earlier this year, post-hardcore group Rain City Drive (known formerly as SLAVES) has issued the second preview of their deluxe self-titled album in the form of “Cutting It Close (Reimagined).” The group’s deluxe album will arrive via Thriller Records on June 23.

From rock anthem to slow-burn R&B, the reimagined version of “Cutting It Close” demonstrates Rain City Drive‘s ability to push boundaries and experiment with their sound. With a blend of electronic elements, rich harmonies, intricate instrumentation, and elements of R&B, the track creates an immersive sonic experience that captivates the listener from start to finish. The band’s impeccable musicianship shines through, specifically lead vocalist Matt McAndrew’s silky delivery, as they skillfully navigate the dynamic shifts and create a captivating atmosphere.
