Who? A folk rock band from London, Dry The River, with Peter Liddle on vocals & guitar, Will Harvey on violin, Jon Warren on drums, Matt Taylor on guitar and Scott Miller on bass.
Which song? New Ceremony, taken from their fresh debut album—Shallow Bed. (out on March 5th 2012)
Why? Started with a delicate sound of acoustic guitar, this dramatic song is served with a romantically sad lyrics, melancholic voice and a unique concept of the video. The haunting aesthetic and incredibly beautiful sound from the violin make us shiver. The music is just splendidly composed with its forlorn lyrics which somehow eventually transform into a fascinating and uplifting moment. This single doesn’t sound like a track that is released from a debut album, but more like something that musicians with long musical journey bring to their listeners.
The single New Ceremony is out today (April 16th) and New Ceremony 7″ will be released exclusively for Record Store Day.
