LISTEN: I SEE RIVERS - 'Collide'

I'm really excited by this group - Nordic trio I SEE RIVERS first came onto my radar when they opened for Cosmo Sheldrake last November. Their enthusiasm, harmonies and unique sound make them a really fun band to see live and I've kept an ear out since for new music. Eline (keys, vocals, percussion), Gøril (guitar, vocals, drum pad) and Lill (drums, vocals) are all originally from Norway, meeting in Liverpool while studying and moving to Pembrokeshire in Wales after they recorded their first EP in the area and fell in love with it.

With support from PRS FoundationBBC Launchpad and their fans via Kickstarter, the trio are in the process of making their debut album, set for release in 2020. For now, whet your appetite with new single Collide. Talking about the track, they explain that "the themes of 'Collide' are of conflict and reconciliation, turbulence and transparency. In contrast to the familiar voices and relatable lyrics, the production of the song is both more contemporary and more adventurous than our previous releases, focusing more on creating space using a combination of gritty, acoustic sounds and sweeping, synthesised elements."
