One of my absolute favourites, Dry The River are finally back with a new single, the first piece of ‘new’ music they’ve released in over two years. The lead single from their forthcoming second album ‘Alarms In The Heart’ (which for the record I think is an amazing title), Gethsemane is a glowing track that showcases a noticeable change and development in the band’s sound. Having lost violinist Will from the band’s line-up, their new single is very refined and mature, full of rich melodies, The National-esque guitar licks and a textural depth that surpasses their earlier music releases. What is recognisable though is their touching religious-based lyrics and heavy, rockier drops that make their music so versatile, different and whole-heartedly enjoyable. It’s a pleasure to have you back Dry The River.
