Norwegian ‘float pop’ trio I SEE RIVERS are known for their memorable melodies and untraditional vocal harmonies. After huge success with their first two EPs and support throughout national radio, TV and two sold out European tours, they are back this Spring with their newest single ‘Helios’ from their upcoming 2020 album.
Although they are all originally from Norway, the band met in Liverpool whilst studying and have recently moved to Pembrokeshire in Wales. They fell in love with the Welsh coast line and mountains whilst recording their first EP at ‘StudiOwz’ with Owain Jenkins. Their musical soundscape has been associated with artists such as Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens and First Aid Kit but their 2020 album has an added new electronic direction.
“Folk-indebted harmonies matched to indie songwriting, their easy-on-the-ear charm has an addictive, pastoral quality.” – CLASH
“Fans of First Aid Kit, The Staves, and Emmy The Great will find familiar aspects to love in the sound of I See Rivers, but also unique elements that make the group's sound entirely their own. Alone, their vocals would be distinctive enough, but their well-oiled harmonies are a different beast altogether” – Line Of Best Fit
“This is vocal harmonising at its exquisite best” – Fresh On The Net
“I SEE RIVERS are able to blend tender, folksy arrangements with intoxicatedly powerful pop wonder” – The 405
“This trio has set the benchmark against which all harmonies will be compared to in the future” – JA JA JA
