Fusing texture & light with a heavy set foundation, The River have been honing their craft over the past two decades with two well received albums & EPs. Incorporating space & subtlety with a strong emphasis on melody, the band mixes fragile vocals over down tempo rhythms & a dense ebb & flow of guitar to create a bittersweet & wistful sound.
The band’s third album, Vessels Into White Tides, brings new colours to their musical palette, taking the music through greater peaks & valleys than before. The multi-instrumental nature of the songs helps to explore & push the sound into a richer, more varied & ultimately more mature form without ever sacrificing their heavier roots.
