RAGS AND RICHES “Misbehave” in playful, 90’s/00’s inspired track!
Brothers Tanner and Peyton Whitt, performing as the adrenalized American alt-pop band RAGS AND RICHES, aim to bring hope and inspire a generation of dreamers. The Lexington, Kentucky natives released their debut single, “Speed of Sound”, in 2019 and lit the spark for a wildfire breakout reaching over a million streams on platforms.
Their latest single “Misbehave” was written alongside their close friend DeMarko Murphy. The track takes sonic inspiration from a mixture of 90’s and 2000’s nostalgia, linking with the Shrek and Barbie references that can be heard throughout the track. The duo shares, “We had the name “Misbehave” in mind for the song and the concept was just this couple that has seen their relationship go stale and they are trying to find some ways to find that spark again. With that in mind the song naturally found its humor, sexy, and serious moments on its own.”
The unique song radiates a feel-good, silly, dancey vibe, certain to brighten up your day. Shimmering with colorful synths, playful percussion and gritty guitars, the infectious lyrics will be stuck in your head, as they chant, “I just wanna see you misbehave.”
The two man crew has performed over 200 shows in over 40 states, including tour support for Fitz and The Tantrums, Judah & the Lion, Durry and Leah Marlene, and will be directly supporting Smash Mouth in September. The duo have also charted in top #200 on NACC college radio charts, won two Lexington Music Awards for ‘Pop Artist of the Year’ as well as ‘Song of the Year’ and impressively clocked in over five million streams and over two million video views in just four years. Their debut album Always Gold released in 2022 via Sonablast! Records also hit over 1.4 million streams in its first week alone. With their current explosive success it’s clear these determined brothers are rising to the top.
