This was not the sound I was expected when I tuned in to the newest video from UK band Dry the River. My only experience with them had been catching them at the Spotify House a couple of years ago during SXSW, and that performance was stripped down and folky. The gloves are off with “Everlasting Light,” and while it’s a bit more aggressive, the push is not unwelcome.
After a five-year hiatus, we finally made it back down to Austin, Texas’s South By Southwest festival. It was our first year going without a badge, and it turned out surprisingly well – things are now a lot more accessible to the average fan. To kick off the week, we’d like to share the videos we took of some the artists we were excited to see. Check back at the end of the week for some professionally shot videos we love. Enjoy!
Yellow Ostrich – Whale
Kimbra – Settle Down
Glen Hansard – Say It to Me Now
Father John Misty – Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings
