Rich Boy Junkie just released “We’re Gonna Be Fine,” out this June on their Senior Portrait EP via Grand Gesture.

Sonically, this is self-described as the most optimistic Rich Boy Junkie song ever written. At its core, “We’re Gonna Be Fine” is a call to action to embrace your ability to reconnect with fun and excitement within your life and realize that despite being stuck in a rut (or in our case, being quarantined inside), we will overcome and be fine. This song sees RBJ’s transition into a more acoustic-sounding and clean feel to prepare for what could be a fresh and doe-eyed look at summer 2020. 

The revolving door of Rich Boy Junkie’s sound is a strong indication of the journey frontman Collin Thomas has taken to get here. The solo project of the California resident, who was once described in an early review as “[hating] the term genre,” has found his footing in many locations and musical styles during his tenure as RBJ.

The project started as a solo recording project out of Thomas’ college bedroom in Bloomington, IN. Backed by either a laptop or a live band, he played live shows while focusing on the recording process himself.
