#480 Bend The River – The Echo And The Sway


From that hotbed of all things alt-country Halifax come Bend The River. This track ‘The Echo And The Sway’ actually has more of a soul/rock n roll feel to it, feeling simultaneous upbeat and tinged with melancholy. It’s taken from the band’s second album So Long Joan Fontaine, out next month, which frontman Ronok Sarkar explains is a record about “all those things tucked deeply away with all the loss and the longing”. So Long Joan Fontaine is out next month.
