Recent Releases

 

On his sophomore release, Nico Rivers takes a departure from the existential to explore his hometown during the lockdown of 2020, Masquerade of Lullabies takes listeners on a journey through the songwriter´s past. The songs also explore new sounds and production styles as Rivers continues to bend the rules of "folk" music and sound design.

 

The record opens with a ballad to his hometown and the friendship that have lasted his lifetime, while the tracks Edge of a Knife and Even Holding tell the stories of friends he has lost along the way.

 

As with his previous release, Tiny Death, the tracks range from minimal and melancholy folk tracks to upbeat rock songs focused on storytelling.

 

"Nice upbeat chorus with reflections of indie rock." - Vinyl Chapters
"A warm blend of indie rock and folk with some really lovely arrangements and production." - We All Want Someone to Shout For
"Awesome, definitely catchy and dig the energy." - American Pancake

 

The album releases on Friday, 01.10.2021 ("SONGS & WHISPERS" / Broken Silence)



 

In early 2020, Rivers Of England were preparing to record their third album.  When the pandemic took off they decided to continue with the recording project, but it forced them to change how they approached it.  The greater time at home coincided with good weather and a period of greater reflection had arrived.

 

This is how Robin Spalding, frontman and songwriter recalls this time: "I live in a cottage in the woods and a two minute walk through the trees takes me to a river that opens out into a secluded lake. Each evening in the spring, I would take my guitar, mic, phone and chair to the riverbank and record the songs to a click track.  Sitting in this environment and having more time changed how the songs developed - they had more of a classical singer songwriter feel to them as they had to work by the river in the first instance for them to be considered worthy of being on the EP.  By the summer, we'd layered our parts on separately and found that this approach really suited our music." Come with me to the riverbank at eight in the evening in spring and let the songs mean whatever you want them to.

 

"Always On My Mind" is the first single of the upcoming album "Eight In The Evening In Spring".

"Eight In The Evening In Spring" releases Friday, 16.07.2021. 

Please pre-save your copy of the single and album please.


It is a bright, spring day. Your morning cup of coffee is warm in your hands as you turn on the TV to find that there has been a nuclear accident, and everything you know and love will be gone in twenty minutes. You look outside at your suburban neighborhood and suddenly, your world is no longer your own.


This is the scene that sets in motion Echo Bloom’s Wake, a vast, colorful portrait of a universe that feels eerily similar to our own. Principal songwriter Kyle Evans weaves tales of the onset and aftermath of environmental apocalypse, of disillusionment with the American Dream, of ghosts from a far away past, again and again exploring what it means to be a stranger in your own home, your own neighborhood, your own life.

 

"Dont You Want To Be Loved" is the first single of the upcoming album Wake.Wake releases Friday, 03.09,.2021

Pre-save your copy of the single under https://orcd.co/dontyouwannabeloved and the album under https://orcd.co/echobloom_wake please.
