Review: Dry the River Band
So I am in the living room online and going through currys discount codes to find the one I want when I hear that some from my favourite band. I start bopping my head to the music and that’s when I recall this band I heard recently the Dry the River.
Dry the River is made up of five lads all based in East London. Their line up is Jon Warren (drums), Will Harvey (violin), Scott Miller (bass), Matt Taylor (guitar), and Pete Liddle (vocals, guitar).
Their name does not at all suggest what they are really all about and they never wanted to be called a techno or dubset act. So when you find yourself at one the shows they are perform all prepared to hear music and voice blasting in your eardrums you are likely to be somewhat disappointed.
Dry the River bring to its audience music that is semi-acoustic and infectious. The songs they blow our to us has a old American frontier feel to them as there are a number of reference to things like medicine men. Peter Liddle who writes many of the bands songs and who is also Norwegian, draws a lot of his inspiration from what he studies when he was in University, namely Anthropology and medicine.
The band initially began as a solo venture before Liddle invited Jon Warren the punk rock drummer, and William Harvey the classical train violinist, in.
The energy from many of the band’s songs cannot be purely classified as punk rock but is surely strong and everyone feels it. Everyone in the band is somewhat feature on their songs. I guess everyone wants to be happy.
This is a band to watch out for and they may be coming to a record store near you as they are being sort by a few music companies at the moment.
