Critically acclaimed British blues rock duo When Rivers Meet releases their third single “Walking On The Wire” from their debut album, ‘We Fly Free’ and follows hot on the heels of their previous singles “Battleground” and “Did I Break The Law.”
Penfriend, aka music producer, songwriter and multi-disciplinary artist Laura Kidd, has announced the release of her debut album Exotic Monsters, out May 21st via My Big Sister Recordings.
Accompanying the announcement is the brand new song ‘Cancel Your Hopes’, which is an eerie, upbeat alt-rock anthem. It’s a starkly honest commentary on the world we’re living in and trying to navigate as best we can.
The new single is accompanied by a stunning music video filmed in Brightlingsea in the North Essex countryside utilizing breath-taking aerial drone footage. The cinematography is gorgeous.
When Rivers Meet is comprised of husband and wife, Grace and Aaron Bond. Grace sings lead vocal on most of When Rivers Meet’s hit album, “We Fly Free”, showcasing her impressive range while adding distinctive slide resonator mandolin and fiddle. Aaron plays the guitar and adds rich vocals.
On “Walking On The Wire”, the band take a heavier blues-rock approach. The vocal harmonies soar while Aaron’s hypnotic slide guitar takes flight. Grace’s resonator mandolin sounds amazing, whilst the rhythm section of pounding drums and walloping bass sticks everything together like glue.
