Follow The Light is the title track from the brand new by The River South, a sensually blissful rock collective that know just how to orchestrate a sonorous Soft Rock hit. The Austin based Rock group is comprised of the undeniable talent from Kirster Axel (guitar, lead vocals & keys), Michael Zuzel (Bass) & Jinnee Joos (vocals). Together they create a palpable synergy that just can’t be ignored.
As soon as the vocals to Follow The Light hit, I was awash with the nostalgia of some of the icons of the genre which The River South have a tangible reminiscence of. I could hear hints of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits behind the haunting composition. There’s a delicate pinch of melancholy behind the vocals that allow the track to sweetly resonate with you. Follow The Light is one of those iconic albums you can’t help but get stuck on. I won’t lie it gave me butterflies. To share the ethereal sensation, you can check out Follow The Light on SoundCloud using the link below:
