[mp3com-artist]Dry the River[/mp3com-artist] frontman Peter Liddle describes his band's sound as "folky gospel music played by a post-punk band." That may sound like a pretty wide range of influneces for a band, but when you hear song's like "New Ceremony," off of their debut LP Shallow Bed you can see where Liddle is coming from. [mp3com-download url="drytheriver-newceremony.mp3" artist="Dry the River" song="New Ceremony" expiration="04/17/2012" email="none" label="RCA Records"/] [mp3com-artist]Dry the River[/mp3com-artist] balances the raw energy and emotion of a punk band with the beautiful, delicate melodies of folk. A rousing track with impeccably lush, string laden production, "New Ceremony" signals Dry the River to be one of the hot new bands in the British nu-folk movement. During the song, Liddle's falsetto vocals start out gently but rises to a climatic cry for help when he sings "I know it's gotta stop, love, but I don't know how." It's a powerful moment, and one that shows how big this band can go.
