Rhett Repko - 'And I Told Her So'

Rhett Repko - 'And I Told Her So'

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Do you ever hear a song that sounds like it should be featured in a TV show? Some songs have a very distinct feeling, where the listener is able to imagine a scenario that could easily exist in the world of their favorite media. It's fun and fascinating, and that's exactly what you get with Rhett Repko's new song, "And I Told Her So," from the EP, Thnx For The Ride. Repko is joined with Stefan Heuer (lead guitar, backup vocals), Dan Gallagher (bass), and Tom Bryant (drums). They have a dynamic sound that you can't sit still for.

You know a song is good when you're sold 3 seconds in. The music is fun and I immediately felt the urge to dance upon hearing it. There are layers that give it great replay quality, especially if you're one to focus on various aspects to a song. Heuer is the star of the song, to me- his guitar work is stellar and I could listen to "And I Told Her So" all day, mostly thanks to the guitar, but everyone is so incredibly talented. Repko has some real talent backing him, and I would expect nothing less from someone so passionate about what he's producing.

The lyrics aren't groundbreaking or anything, another potential love song where a guy confesses attraction to a girl. That's literally it- the song is a long ramble that, according to the chorus, is all said to a woman. I imagine it to be on the awkward side, but still oddly charming. I love the pacing and how light the lyrics are. At first I wasn't a big fan of Repko's voice, but it's a matter of getting used to the sound. The only issue I have is that you can't understand what he's saying in a few parts of the song. It's a mix of the effects on his voice and the lack of enunciation- hopefully this isn't an issue in his other work, because it does take a bit out of the overall enjoyment (unless you're not especially interested in the lyrics, but personally that's my favorite part).

Rhett Repko: "And I Told Her So" Live -
Repko is dedicated to his music and it shows through every part of "And I Told Her So." He's developed a fantastic sound that brings some funk to what feels like college rock, which lends itself to the idea of it working well in a TV show, especially one focused on that demographic. It's almost nostalgic due to the subject matter, even if you don't have a memory to fall back on yourself. I'm going to be adding this song to a number of my more light-hearted playlists.

"And I Told Her So" is a great song that I'd recommend to anyone who loves dance-worthy music that will brighten your day. Rhett Repko has a wonderful thing going on here and his sound is fun and refreshing. As a hopeless romantic, I'm a sucker for any song about love and attraction that feels positively open-ended. Be sure to check him out!
