video ‘stache: DRY THE RIVER Have Officially Arrived

UK band Dry The River make waves in the US with buzzed about NYC shows, live radio debut at KEXP and intensely emotive videos.

Don’t let the Jeff Buckley tinged falsetto vocals and emotive subject matter fool you, Dry The River cited their influences are rooted in Fugazi, Leonard Cohen and At The Drive In.

‘stache was on site last night at the packed Mercury Lounge in NYC to witness the soulful live performance that ended with a plugged-in jam that would have made Joe Strummer proud.  Check out some videos below and prepare to be swooned!

‘Weights And Measures’

‘No Rest’

Based out of East London, Dry the River — who have drawn comparisons to Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and Noah and the Whale — was formed as a solo vehicle for Norwegian born singer/songwriter Peter Liddle, who described the band’s sound as “folky gospel music played by a post-punk band.” Liddle draws much of his lyrical inspiration from medicine and anthropology, the two subjects that were the focus of his time at University.  He eventually recruited Matt Taylor (guitar), Scott Miller (bass), Will Harvey (violin) and Jon Warren (drums) to round out the project. Praised performances at Glastonbury and South by Southwest garnered additional industry attention, and by the end of 2011, the group had cut their debut EP with producer Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Jónsi).

The band’s 4-track EP Weights & Measures is available now.
