We’re serving up a tasty pop single just in time for the summer with “Know Better” by Reaves for this week’s ONErpm Hitmaker Alert. Sparse production and tight harmonies make this one an ear worm – not that we’re complaining!
Reaves is a duo comprised of Will Anderson (Parachute) and Katelyn Tarver. Although both had already carved out successful music careers, they were drawn to each other immediately after meeting on tour in 2012. Any thoughts of exploring a songwriting partnership were put on hold until 2020 when the global pandemic gave them a rare opportunity to slow down and experiment with new music. After some trips between Nashville and Los Angeles, demos began to take shape into the makings of Reave’s first singles.
“Know Better” paints the story of a lover that can’t seem to move past a lost relationship. Try as the protagonist might, she can’t stop her mind from wandering back to her ex, going so far as to stress “I’m going to therapy, I don’t know if it helps.”
