Dry The River, More Folk-Rock Goodness From The UK [new mp3, SxSW 2011]

by Woody on February 8, 2011

Dry The River are an act to put on your must-see list for SXSW. The London based outfit play mostly acoustic folk-rock behind layered harmonies. Dry The River’s sound is a blend of musical styles from their prior musical lives: singer-songwriter, punk-rock drummer, classically-trained violinist, etc. They cite influences like Paul Simon and Fleet Foxes and, if you’re looking for a London contemporary, Mumford and Sons would be an appropriate name to drop.

They have a couple hard to find EPs out and their debut single, “New Ceremony,” will be out in March 7th through Transgressive Records. Hop on board before the train passes you by.

Such a good song! Have you checked out their new album yet? It won’t be out in the US til April, but they have a really cool interactive YouTube video for it. Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7ZLl00nW60&feature=youtu.be
