Dry The River: “Weights & Measures”

Gosh this is gorgeous music. London-based five-piece Dry The River pack a real emotional punch on “Weights & Measures,” the title track from their forthcoming EP. With just the gentle strum and buzz of guitar and some strained-in-all-the-right-places vocals, this song builds to an aching crescendo, and the release — with its strings and bombast and heartache —  is just as beautiful. There’s bits and pieces here from other bands who make their hay by tugging at your heart strings: Fleet Foxes. Elbow. Even Frightened Rabbit.

Dry The River recently wrapped up a stint touring in support of Bombay Bicycle Club, and the Weights & Measures EP is out next week. Check out “Weights & Measures” below.
