Canada’s favourite siblings The Reklaws have released their highly anticipated second album Sophomore Slump … and it does NOT disappoint.
Sophomore Slump is a 12-track album filled with anthems that summarize the timeless emotions and moments that make up the college experience. “Everyone experiences the same heartbreak, hopes and life-changing decisions that we’re faced with in our transformative, coming of age years.”
This album is the follow-up to The Reklaws debut album Freshman Year which was certified GOLD in Canada, and was the most domestically streamed album by a Canadian country artist in the past decade. As you can imagine with that kind of success, artists often have a hard time with their second albums. It’s often referred to as a Sophomore Slump … so this album is aptly named.
On The Reklaws’ Facebook page, they said: “This is our heart and souls! This is what came out of this ‘slump’ of a year!” They continued, “When you listen we hope you envision those packed festivals and arenas, and see yourself with your family and friends laughing and enjoying life! Cause it’s going to happen again. Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making this happen, you have truly cared about what we want to say and for that we are grateful.”
On the day they released this album to the world, they also released a music video for their new single “Not Gonna Not“.

In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
