Song of the Day: The Rills – Falling Apart

The Rills are a Lincoln indie band, returning to the city for a homecoming show. Refusing to be held back by multiple lockdowns, they spent 2020 working on releasing two singles (‘The Angler’ and ‘Stardog’), as well as becoming TikTok stars in their own right, building a strong fanbase through their relatable comedy and dynamic use of social media.

Since then, The Rills have emerged as a stand-out artist, championed by BBC Introducing as a keen one to watch. The band earned a spot on BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in May 2021, debuting their to-be-released single, ‘World Leader’, before going on to play the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds fest 2021.
Musically, The Rills play on the band’s trademarked thunderous rhythm section, led by lead singer Mitch Spencer, who is known for his quick witted and ardent kitchen sink lyricism. Most recently, the band have released a new single with Lincoln themes throughout – ‘Skint Eastwood’. Enjoy ‘Falling Apart’!
