Rivertairs



Ralph's recently played English band Rivertairs on his Radio KC Sunday Show thanks to a heads up from Blue Soap Music so thought it was a good idea to investigate their voyage of musical discovery in which they channel influences from rock n’ roll through to psychedelia to create what they describe as - 

"a soundscape of many colours".





Rivertairs musical odyssey began at Warth Mill in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester, where passion and persistence weaved together an exciting prospect. Having a variety of influences from The Kinks to Small Faces to The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger to Temples, they write songs containing vivacious vocals, whimsical guitar parts, punchy bass lines, shimmering keys, vintage beats and shaking tambourines - which led to the creation of their first three-track demo, 2013's Fool’s Parade.



A number of gigs, which included a support slot for nineties Liverpool band Space and a show with the illustrious UK music promoters This Feeling, where the band gained praise from BBC Radio 6 Music presenter Chris Hawkins.

Rivertairs are producing a catalogue of new music. Jack is the first of some new songs to be released; a tongue in cheek vignette centered on the infamous Jack the Ripper.




Describing their new single, Rivertairs say Jack is - "a suspenseful sonance plucking the strings of imagination". The release is accompanied by a deliciously dark video.

The band released the video to accompany Jack at one minute past midnight on 31st October 2014 to celebrate Halloween. 

Jack will be available as a free download from the band's website from November 10th 2014.
