Folk meets Britpop in River Knight’s latest single, She Came Round, featuring Ralph Walling.

Americana meets UK Britpop in River Night’s alt-folk single, She Came Round, featuring Ralph Walling. While instrumentally, the semi-orchestral folky instrumentals run in the same vein as Dylan’s did in the 70s, there’s a touch of Oasis and the Stone Roses to the vocals that contrast with the accordant tones of the acoustic guitar progressions.

She Came Round is just one of the authentically original singles from the Southampton-based duo’s lockdown-born album, Grow, which released on June 25th. With plenty of tour dates in their diary, 2021 could very well be the year of River Knight.

She Came Round is now available to stream via SoundCloud.

Reminiscences of the Stone Roses iconic sound may be perceptible in numerous of 8udDha bl0od’s tracks, but with 570n3D R0535: f00l5 g0lD; 5!l<3r R35Urr3c710n the Brighton-based artist made a fitting ode to the timeless classic Fools Gold.

420 vibes drip from the effortlessly melodic Psych Alt Rock track which will take you on a 9-minute journey through glitchy, intense, effects-laden inventive alchemy.

While 570n3D R0535: f00l5 g0lD; 5!l<3r R35Urr3c710n may be darker, harsher and more experimental than anything the Stone Roses have ever come up with, the ingenuity of the orchestration definitely wasn’t lost on us. The instrumental hooks are just as sharp, and the production ensures the track is equally as entrancing.

You can check out 570n3D R0535: f00l5 g0lD; 5!l<3r R35Urr3c710n for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
