Boat To Row: “A Boat To Row, To Row To You”

UK band Boat To Row have an awful lot going for them on this fabulous track. There’s some dynamite guy-girl harmonies. There are swooning strings underneath guitar and banjo melodies. And there’s the tale it tells about pining for one love — because that person owns your heart forever — even when that yearning seems to have no hope of paying off.

So not only is it gorgeous musically — think Mumford & Sonsish with a wonderful female touch — but is endearing for the honest and lovely sentiment it expresses. Boat to Row could fit nicely behind the major players that have emerged on the Brit-folk landscape in recent years (like Laura Marling or M&S or Noah And The Whale), but they truly have an alluring sound all their own.

Check out “A Boat To Row, To Row To You” below, and watch the somewhat brutal video for it as well. The song will be released as a single on istartedthefire records on May 2.

This body may be broken, but this heart’s forever spoken for
