Featured Performance by: River Whyless Stand out experimental folk rock.
River Whyless puts a hauntingly sweet spin on traditional foundations with a sound full of lush harmonies, wide sweeping arrangements driven by dark percussion, and metaphors built of firewood and sap.
Their recent EP, the bands first release since their 2012 debut album, marks a notable evolution in their collective voice. Anderson’s voice finds a mark between Sandy Denny’s ethereal plea and Crystal Gayle’s country swoon. English trad-folk sounds are some of the band’s obvious touchstones, putting them in a category similar to contemporaries like Fleet Foxes and Stornoway.
