I SEE RIVERS
Originally hailing from the Northern, Southern and Western parts of Norway, the now UK based trio I SEE RIVERS moves in a musical landscape they’ve dubbed “Float Folk”. With memorable melodies and untraditional vocal harmonies their soundscape can be associated with artists such as Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens and Feist. After two self-releases (‘Loved Ones’ 2015 and ‘Standing Barefoot’ 2017, the latter critically acclaimed by media outlets such as The 405, JA JA JA and BBC 6, and a range of tours and concerts (with highlights such as Green Man Festival, Belladrum Festival 2017 and supporting Newton Faulkner on his UK tour in 2016, as well as being longlisted for Galstonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition 2017), the band is now preparing for their third release, set to come out Spring 2018.
