Ivy League Records is elated to announce the return of beloved Melbourne outfit Tiny Little Houses with their powerful new single, "Richard Cory" - out everywhere now.
After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, "Richard Cory" marks a colossal return for the four-piece; inspired by the classic poem of the same title, the song is an emotional force, complete with heart-wrenching lyrics, surging guitars and of course, lead singer Caleb Karvountzis’s distinct vocals.
Of the track, frontman Caleb Karvountzis says:
“Richard Cory" is a reimagining of a far better poem by Edwin Arlington Robinson. The first time I read it as a teenager I was completely stunned and knew one day I would try to work a song around its theme. While modernising some of the setting and language, I've tried my best to do the original poem justice, with its status themes still being relevant today. I actually had no idea the poem also inspired a Simon & Garfunkel song until our record label pointed it out.”
Remarkably the themes of the poem – originally written in 1897, then reimagined by Simon & Garfunkel in 1966 – continue to remain relevant today.
