After the released of her recent single project in October, 15 2022 with Record label Internet & Weed. River Hooks describes herself as an insomniac who has always felt drawn to the moon and stars.
And this project also account for getting lost in space.

The new single “Don’t Look Back” gives you a platform of to expressing to not look back from the feeling of getting lost altogether.
As a lifelong experimenter with sound, River Hooks’ compositions frequently draw inspiration from real-life events or people. This particular tune is no exception. Internet and Weed signee clearly said Don’t Look Back, was inspired by English singer, songwriter, and record producer PinkPantheress and the music wave type of a bedroom pop sad girl sounds.
PinkPantheress songs usually have brief runs and incorporate fragments of songs from the 1990s and 2000s. They cover a variety of musical genres, including bedroom pop, drum and bass, alt-pop, and 2-step garage, so you could connect the thoughts of River Hooks Don’t Look Back being inspired by this, and it’s f**ck**ng amazing.
Songs like “Mountains,” which was released back in August 2020 Hooks demonstrates her prowess as a vocalist, instantly identifying the songs’ emotional realities and revealing them to the audience with ease and a perfect understatement that augurs well for the remainder of her debut.
She does not fit the definition of a singer-songwriter in the sense of a coffeehouse troubadour, but she is a member of the illustrious heritage of songwriters who put the song first and is positioned for success in that field.
