El Gato Del Rio – “Dethroned”

El Gato Del Rio is a group from the northern plains their hometown being Stark County, North Dakota. Their music is eclectic while remaining familiar and their writing style is, as they put it “heavily influenced by the substances that they ingest.” Their first album, “The Music Box”, was released in early 2017 an will include their first thirteen recordings. These songs are all stories, some true and some imagined. El Gato Del Rio does not allow their music to be bound by any singular musical genre, style, or direction, and they remain free to allow anything to happen.


Their track “Dethroned” is a hauntingly beautiful acoustic song with instrumental influences of American folk music and vocal harmonies of country and rock. The multiple vocals, tossing back and forth between female leads and male leads, make the song a conversation among the band and engages the listener into their story. There is a quality about a sad song that makes you feel so good, and this song definitely has it. The verses are somewhat melancholy while the chorus is hopeful and the emotional vocals have a flavor of redemption and optimism.
