A combination of emo-tinged lyrics, spacious guitar work, and hard-hitting refrains, Okayfine is a prog-rock experiment spearheaded by multi-instrumentalist Ben Reaves.
The project is borne out of inspiration from Porcupine Tree and a fascination with ambient legends Hammock's guitar-driven soundscapes that Reaves cultivated in his early college years. The original attempts at building a set of music around those interests, though, were never fully realized, and ultimately remained untouched for years, until Reaves met songwriter and vocalist Reid Craft, who introduced him to talents like Manchester Orchestra and You Blew It!. The contrast they provided between pounding walls of sound and raw, honest lyrical content pushed him to take a different approach to songwriting, eventually co-writing "Fire Away," "Oceanus," and "Tonight" with Craft in 2013. Their project Housefire Melody bore an emo-like sound that led Reaves to create "Harville" early the next year.
After some time focusing on mixing rather than writing, he returned to performance with Girl Clothes, a collaborative effort among he, Robert Wilson, and Robert Stonaker, debuting in Athens, GA. Apart from work arranging and performing with the band, Reaves silently tinkered with new songs with a return of sorts to a more progressive sound. Songs like "A Year" maintain the rawness of "Harville", while "Constellation" takes those ideas and returns to complexity.
