Congrats to Hey Marseilles, whose single “Rio” is NPR’s Song of the Day today. Writes NPR, “As sweet strings, handclaps and a well-placed mandolin propel “Rio” along, singer Matthew Bishop dispenses an endearing ode to world travel, adventure and the promise of faraway places. ‘Think of the shorelines you have yet to see / Men who will hold you with eyes you believe,’ he sings. He advocates on behalf of taking a few risks along the way — ‘Drink ’til tomorrow becomes yesterday,’ he pleads at one point — but all of his advice adds up to a warm reminder that joy is never easier to find than when you head out looking for it.” Check out the full article and stream the tune at the link above.
